Design Reflection

In this semester, we finished a project that required us to make a video about this school and introduce a specific part in it,  In order to make a good video, we have to design it carefully and then make a plan before we started, therefore our product is related to the design challenge. In the other hand, we still need a lot to improve such as our audio and background music, pictures included in the video and how the theme is related to our video. But recording to the survey, the feedback we got showed overall our product is pretty good and follow the theme we wanted at the start.

What makes a credible scientist?

A credible scientist will be patient to collect a reliable number of trials to make sure the data is reliable and accurate. And a credible scientist should be careful enough to record about different variables in the experiment to make the report is clear.

Why is the scientific ‘way of knowing’ used in medicine compared to other ways of knowing?

Because scientific “way of knowing” that used in medicine is based on different evidence and fact, so when doctors give their patient medicine to eat, they won’t give the medicine just because of biased or other unreliable resources, but related to some science empirical such as different kinds of negative and positive affect on each medicine that the patient will eat. science can connected to quantitative and qualitative, which are both very useful in the topic of medicine.

Reflecting on scientific investigations is important because you can get more accurate results by repeating investigations with improvements to your method. How would you improve your seed dispersal investigation if you were to repeat it?

If I can repeat it again, I will find another place such as gym because the air conditioner there is not as strong as there is at forum. If we can control this variable, then there might be a different about the result. The second thing a want to change is the trials. Even though three trials are enough to make sure the data is reliable, but because the data we collected wasn’t in a linear relationship, so maybe more trials can let the data become more accurate.
