For my capstone project, I wanted it to represent something I was a part of and that I could actually relate to. I pushed the School District to include ASL as a language credit, offer more information on the deaf community, and include deaf students as they do other students. I assessed this by writing a letter to the hearing support coordinator. I would like a response in the letter as that will determine the success of my capstone project. Throughout this project, I learned more about my community and the abilities within. I am able to use my voice to speak for others.
This Video about Waste Management includes content about littering, dumping, and how trash affects the environment in Philadelphia. We zoom in on the amount of trash that is affecting and has been affecting the Philadelphia and Chester areas. Included in this PSA are videos about the issues it’s caused residents and how people have tried to fix the issue and what to look forward to reduce the issue. I chose this topic because I live in North Philadelphia. Usually, when people hear North Philly, they think of or see trash, which is sad. I see with my own eyes how trash is affecting our city.
I think there could have been more inclusion about what people do to hurt our environment, such as more insight into littering and dumping. I think our video includes multiple perspectives on the issue.
The most meaningful part of this project was seeing that there are actually people trying to do something about the issue. I feel like you don’t actually see what’s going on with topics in our community until you look further into it and I enjoyed seeing how many people are involved.
The atmosphere provides the geosphere with the necessary heat and energy for erosion. In response, the geosphere reflects the sun’s energy back into the atmosphere. The atmosphere provides the biosphere with gas, heat, and sunlight (energy). It pumps water from the hydrosphere. An understanding of environmental science can aid in handling natural disasters by getting people to understand the cause of natural disasters. Once people understand that, they can understand and learn how to take steps and action to reduce the part they play in creating or inducing these disasters. To create a sustainable future, we can use less electricity and water. We can also, teach others to properly recycle. Learning that drought is also considered water that was already on the land drying out was one of my takeaways. I assumed that the water from a lake or pond would stay there until used. Once I continued to read about the topic I completely understood the process.
