For my capstone, I want the students to have a fulfilling experience before entering high school. Many schools nowadays are just repeatedly teaching the students what would help them in the future when in reality it is a waste of time. But not engineering. By learning about engineering you are teaching yourself with the help of others. In the engineering curriculum, you are learning how to think out of the box, strategy on math or writing skills, and most importantly teamwork. Teamwork is a big thing in engineering and any field you put your mind to. With my experience for the four years that I have been hand-selected to be in CTE at Science Leadership Academy at Beeber, I have learned the importance of knowing what you want and learning how to do it without feeling stress over something that can or may affect the input before the situation ever occurs. I am teaching my students that with the skills from being in a field like Engineering you can know and be hands-on with everything. I feel you are more likely to be drawn into something if can do it yourself and be proud of what made seem like a lot. For the last couple of weeks, I want to have a clear understanding of what engineering is and what it could do in the present time; because we are living in a world full of engineers changing and trying to make the best of what we have. Now was it an easy process? No, but it was a great experience.
Air pollution is always and will be surrounding us throughout our time on Earth and we need to take care of it. The chemicals being flown into the air are harmful to our everyday lives like gardening, hunting, exercising, etc. So not being on top of what we are doing slowly affects the way we live. Understanding and accepting that some of the solutions are not going to satisfy our needs and wants from Mother Nature. Mother nature will always find a way to reform into something much better even when there are burning fossil fuels, factories, and anything else to destroy life. It always has a backup/ plan to look back on
What stood out to me was that Mexico created a water bottle brand for them and visitors so that no one gets ill from accidentally drinking the tap water.
Is the global water crisis an environmental justice issue? Why or why not?- No, it would not be environmental justice when you think of environmental justice it is something that can be prevented or an easier simpler way to fight the cause of the effect. Whereas a water crisis affects not one area or two, but many major parts of the city where it could grow out of hand. “Environmental injustice can be defined as the disproportionate exposure of Black, Brown, Indigenous, and/or low-income communities to environmental harms and risks, as compared to other communities, and its concomitant adverse effects on the health and the environment of those communities. Moreover, environmental injustice refers to the unequal enforcement by federal, state, and local government regulatory agencies of protective environmental laws, regulations, policies, and programs.”
