Pre-Trip Reflection

by Adrian on November 14, 2015

During the C.A.S week sections,  I learnt a few different things about their culture and some fun facts. Important culture includes their language and some important gestures. Important gestures that must not be done is touching their head, this is because the local citizens find it really rude. Also during the Cava ceremony, you must clap once before receiving the bowl and afterwards clap 3 times to show that you enjoyed it. People from last year said the Cava juice taste really nice, so I am looking forward to this event. When thinking about C.A.S week, some thoughts come into my mind. This includes adventure, making new friends and experiencing different culture.  Adventure is important in C.A.S week, because a good adventure can be very memorable. Exploring different aspects of the country and learning its culture from locals also show that you are a IB learner because you are curious and a inquire learner. Second, meeting new friends from school are the local students could be good, because connections are very important. Making a positive impact on the community, would also make the locals more happy. Hence if the service work we do can impact lots of people, we will be welcomed in a very friendly way.


Design Final Prototype (Science Heart Valve)

This is my artificial heart, and its stand to help demonstrate how the valve works. This prototype is based off the marble design and it is very simple and easy to make. All that is require is a few rubber bands, 2 paperclips, a balloon and a pipe. The paper clips are used to prevent the ball from falling out and the balloon is used to keep the ball from rolling out the other side. Since the ballon is stretchable, it will form the balls shape, as a result of closing all gaps to prevent the water from reverse back flow.
