What are the systems that run the UK? It may seem like an obvious question, but when you start to look into it, there are lots of individual bits and pieces that work in their own weird and wonderful (and sometimes extremely odd) way. Whether it's the Commons chamber, the speaker of the house, or the darker whips, there's so much to explore into this extremely intriguing question.
Here is my Junior Project, which was to lead some primary school kids through making a project on Scratch. I chose this topic because I like helping kids learn new things and I like making unique styles of projects and helping kids with things they find hard.
For my Junior Project, I have researched the history of Impressionism. I have looked at how it all began, famous impressionist artists, and how it came to an end.
My project is about reusing corks that would have gone in the bin otherwise to create decorations and items that are used on an everyday basis.
I chose to do my project on women in science because I wanted to find out about who laid the groundwork for today’s female scientists. I researched and wrote about 12 scientists that helped to progress the field of science and who battled society's prejudice at the time. I believe that everyone stands an equal chance to be educated and to do whichever profession they wish, these women stand as an example to anyone who wishes to pursue a career in science that it doesn't matter what other people think and that you can do great things when you put your mind to it.
My project is about the contribution made by women to cryptography and coding. I chose to do it because I was interested in cryptography from a club that I did at the start of the year. I was also aware that this was a field that nowadays was predominately male-dominated, so I wanted to find out if that had always been the case.
My project is about the History of Forensic Science. I decided to write about this as it has been a passion since I was younger and would love to carry on my love for forensic science when I am older.
The reason why I chose the Bermuda Triangle topic is because I am interested in topics that confuse the public and so that is why I wanted to research it.
I have been writing a novel - Frozen Monarchy. Here are the first five chapters
In this presentation, I will be talking to you about Brexit. I will first explain what the European Union is and Britain’s relationship in the past with the EU. Then, I will go on to talk about what Brexit actually is with focus on the key figures who pushed it forward. The next area I will discuss is the campaign that took place which led to Britain’s departure from the EU. Following on from that, I will explain the current events that are happening because of Brexit. To conclude, I will outline what the impact of Brexit will be on future generations.
Astronomy is quite a wide branch of interesting discoveries, amazing scales and breath-taking sizes. I have focused my powerpoint on what I think essential to learn if you are studying astronomy for both the long term and the short term. Stars are very interesting, from the ones in our solar system, to stars millions of light years away and hundreds of times bigger than our sun. This project is a part two from my old project, if you haven't seen it please see it on our school portal.
Here is my Junior Project, which is about constellations. The reason that I chose constellations is simply because I didn't know much about them and I wanted to know more.
Hello! My name is Max and I have made a book with 100 pages, filled to the brim with information on dinosaurs! It includes big names like T-rex and Diplodocus and some less popular, but still cool, dinosaurs like Gastonia and Utahraptor. I chose this topic as I have, from a young age, been interested in dinosaurs. Most of the information and images in this book come from the Natural History Museum Site (https://www.nhm.ac.uk/discover/dino-directory/name/a/gallery.html) but also some information and images come from simple Google searches.
You can find a copy of my book in the JB Library.
I have researched different artists and their work and tried to produce my own piece of work in their style of art.
Quantum mechanics is the physics of the very small, whereas general relativity is the physics of the very large. But these two theories do not play well together. There should be a set of fixed laws that govern our physical universe, and all physical phenomena should follow those laws. However, the issue is that right now, there are separate laws for the quantum world (small particles) and the relative (large matter) world. But why is this the case? Our story begins with a revolutionary set of equations in summarised in 1865.
For my Junior Project, I have researched the history of the Labour Party, from Keir Hardie to Keir Starmer.
This presentation will explore the most effective techniques for training a horse. It will research the techniques of trainers such as Ben Atkinson and Monty Roberts. It will highlight the advantages and disadvantages of positive and Negative reinforcement, and briefly explore the equine language of ‘Equus’. All this will result in a conclusion of the best technique for training a horse.
For hundreds of years the imaginations of science fiction writers have soared to the stars picturing alien civilisations and lost worlds filled with advanced technology and strangely adapted beings. In this project I will explore the way that science fiction writing has evolved through time, assess the adaptation of sci-fi cover art, look over some of the greatest sci-fi stories and even write my own short story based on what I have studied.
Ever wondered what our planet will be like in 100 years? How everything will have progressed and changed? In this presentation, I will be exploring and looking into many different detailed possibilities of what you can expect of the world, in 2122.
The ideas and predictions included in this slideshow are mainly originated from published websites, written by professional researchers online, to maximise the accuracy of the predictions and the quality of the information.
All of the sources of information and websites will be displayed at the end of powerpoint if you are interested about the topic and want to find out more about what the future could potentially look like.
