Day 1: 7/16/18
Nori: My group chose the topic youth using technology to solve issues in their communities because it’s a hot topic in today’s society. We feel like it’s very important for adults to help empower youth to know the capabilities of technology and how to helps people in communities. The first day was frustrating because we had to find research and all the sources seemed very inaccurate so that was kind of a barrier that we had to overcome but we locked down and ended up finding a lot of statistics and information.
Day 2: 7/17/18
Nori: We then found more data on our topic and read more things to get us a better grasp of what we were doing, then we created our website and the goal overall is to encourage adults and more teens to use more technology to help their communities more. Today I also asked Mrs. Ravichandran if I could ask her some questions about technology and youth it was very stressful preparing questions to ask her but we did it and the interview is tomorrow.
Day 3: 7/18/18
Nori: Today we worked on our website and I interviewed Mrs. Ravichandran, that went very well and it also was a great experience, I was also very nervous but I got through it and my group has made a lot of positive progress and lastly we finished our layout. Also Mrs. Ravichandran said one thing yesterday in the interview and it stood out a lot to me which was “ There will be no future without S.T.E.M .” that to me is so true because most of the worlds new industries are technology based.
Day 4: 7/19/18
Nori: Today we completed our website finally. It was most definitely a struggle but we locked down and got it done, it looks good but the last thing we have to do is make our video and add it to the website that will be happening Monday. At 12:30 we met with Mrs. Ravichandran to hear about how the company began and also really good advice to help us be successful in the future. Earlier this week Ms. Bergmesiter came in and educated us a lot on past entrepreneurs who were very successful and also shared a lot of quotes with us. I’m really glad my group chose the topic we did because it’s very important to educate other people on how important technology is and also how it can be so helpful and not just for entertainment.
