Video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wiLFkEy0tqE To be honest, I didn't pick this topic. I worked with this group thinking they would do work and I was interested in learning more about the topic. We didn't have set roles, but maybe we should've. It was like "Okay, you do this and I'll do this." But I did contribute a lot of work into this project. I think there's a lot we could have done differently, especially with the final project. Overall, I wish I could redo this.
I wanted to research lead pollution because lead is everywhere, even in places we didn’t expect at first. We’ve been learning about it being in homes and water during class and I was surprised because I always thought it was just in our pencils. Choosing this topic was meant for me to actually learn something instead of reciting back things I had already learned or already knew previously. And I did learn some new things.
Throughout the duration of the time we worked on the project, I tried to make sure every checkpoint was submitted on time and I wanted to make sure we had relevant information.
I think I tried to have more than just a video for our project when we first started recording and I just scratched that whole idea because the original video was worse than this one. Something I could’ve done better would be to edit and submit the video myself.
The most meaningful part of creating the PSA was learning new things, more than it being in the water and our homes, more than babies and young children being the most at risk of lead poisoning. I learned many organizations that help fight causes like this, I learned plants absorb lead through their soil, and lead can remain in dust indefinitely.
I chose this topic to learn more about the textile industry. I want to go to school next year for fashion design at FIT. If I want to have my own clothing brand someday I should how that would be affecting the environment. In the future, I want to make clothing out of only eco-friendly materials and non-polluting dyes. Through intensive research, I found out where a lot of clothing is being created and it's usually overseas with largest produces being China and India then learning how the textile industry is affecting the ecosystems in that surrounding area by dyes polluting the waterways, Overconsumption leading to an abundance of waste which is pilling up in landfills, and with big boats transportation overseas releases a ton of co2 emissions into the air. If we used time manegengemt better we could have gotten the project done earlier and have time to revise. A single cotton shirt uses 2,700 Liters of water from start to finish that is enough water to last a human over 2 years. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wiLFkEy0tqE
The reason why we chose water pollution was that we needed to express how important it is to have fresh clean water. water is used in our everyday lives and without water we will not be able to survive. I contributed to this project by researching all of the information and gathering it so that we would be able to create a script and made sense of it. I wish we could have gotten better sound quality because it was lower than what we expected.
This project was an easy for me and helped me making a change towards the community. I tributes by helping giving ideas and picking up trash. I struggled with opening up and not being scared. The most meaningful thing of this whole project is to really help and speak about something I really care about because this earth provides for us and we should be able to protect it and not harm it https://youtu.be/ZRdzU7mdsJE
I choose this topic because the impact that this issue has on not only humans but aquatic animals has shocked me to making a change. The way I contributed was adding my ideas and thoughts being able to relate and make a change by the solutions that I knew helped me make a change about Litter. i did very well on contributing to the project one thing I struggled on was being nervous. The most meaningful part was watching and getting to know the Green Team and how they act on environmental issues. https://youtu.be/ZRdzU7mdsJE
For our team's PSA, my group and I decided to talk about water pollution and how it is affecting our environment. In our video, we talk about things like how it affects us, our plant and aquatic life, who it affects, and how we can fix this issue. This was an important issue for us to talk about, especially to teens, because we can all work together to make our earth a better and healthier place. I enjoyed working with my group because we did a good job with helping and supporting each other to make sure the PSA comes out as best as possible.
Our video opens with a skit, that sets the rest of the video up to talk about lead poisoning. The skit relates to the way innocent children can be exposed to lead because it can be in things just as paint. Our video not only explains what lead poisoning is but how it affects children. Along with the way lead poisoning affects a child we talk about the organizations that deal specifically with lead poisoning, how it can be prevented, and the how the lead cases have changed over time. I chose this topic because I think that it is an important and deadly topic that is often overlooked. As I learned how much lead poisoning can affect a child's health it became interesting that I learn more about it. The more I learned about this topic the more I realized how it could affect the young people I know. I contributed to the video because I added to the information that we then put into our video. I helped setting up the script in a way that would help the viewer better understand the content. Along with the information part of the video I also edited the video to make it as presentable as possible. I did well with simplifying the information so that someone with not as much background information as me could understand. One thing I could have done differently was go more into the organizations that deal with lead poisoning. The most meaningful part of the PSA was learning about the how dangerous lead poisoning can be. I liked how our PSA short but full of information. https://youtu.be/pdRcLY2VaUQ
