I chose this sculpture because tumblr is a way in social media where teens can go and express themselves instead of doing it in real life. I personally do this and i think it brings my self esteem up because i can socialize with other people around the world. I can now talk to someone in California or the UK i think it’s very interesting. The internet in general has evolved from 2000 - 2015. Social Media is changing peoples lives. It changed mines too because when i started going on social media and started making accounts i met new people and i had all of these online friends and i eventually met some of them.
This project maybe may sound easy at first but you brainstorm so much that you don’t even know what to do your project on or what topics interest you. I think having a parallel circuit was better because when they are in series it needs more resistance and the more resistance you need means the harder it is for electricity to flow through the copper wires. But when you have a parallel circuit it will be easier for the energy to flow because it doesn’t need that much resistance. I had two different branches one vertical one horizontal. I had a parallel circuit for one direction and a series for the other.
To me it says that social media such as tumblr can “light up” somebody’s day because when i am sad or bored i usually stick out to social media and interact with my thousands of followers. Social media can be used in a good way or in a bad way. It can be used in a good way to make friends or connect with people around the world/ talking to your family members online on facebook or twitter.
Social media can affect teenagers mental health and cause damage in the brain. For example facebook or twitter can shorten attention spans. “The Oxford University said that repeated exposure could effectively rewire the brain.” People care afraid that technology can damage the younger kids mind since they are just attracted to bright lights and buzzing noises.
Tumblr is very important in the social media world since they have tons of accounts. Tumblr has grown since 2010 over 47%. This shows that every year tumblr has gotten more popular and there’s years to come so i estimate its going to grow as big as facebook or maybe even bigger.
For my project I chose a pokeball as the design. First I started by building my circuit. my circuit is a parallel circuit with one led bulb and a switch on the circuit board. I then painted the two bowls that are around the circuit red and white. I used one l.e.d bulb, a switch, and one double a battery. I chose this design because I was struggling to pick a design for my project and so the first thing i thought of was a pokeball so I chose a pokeball for the design.

A paper rose with lighten thorns. What would it mean to you , and given the information that two young ladies created it. You would probably think they made it because its pretty. But know we critical thought about what we would like to create. We thought of how complex we could really be and think which was more than the stereotype problems of a teenage girl.
We don’t believe in stressing the problems if a boy likes us or not because we know our beauty. We stress the mess of our grades and how we have to straighten them out for college and how it is just one of the four major steps we have to reach success which is what our four thorns represent. High school career, College readiness, College Career, and Society readiness.
When we started this project we instantly thought of what would represent us. This rose does that by expressing the bright future and steps we need to take to get there with each thorn which leads to the last light in the middle of the rose. The rose also represents the beauty in which we take these step as well as our thorns represent the pain we can endure on this difficult journey to success.
I chooses this experiment because I wanted to see if I could make a glow bracelet The reason I choose this ideas because I wanted to do something different from everybody else, another reason I wanted to make a glow bracelet is to make my invention into a reality and use it for the future, that will help the world in future.

A crescent moon is an Islamic symbol which tell us Muslims when the month begins and also when Ramadan is approaching. The start of the crescent moon is an Islamic symbol and it was connected with the Muslim world after it was adopted by the Ottoman Empire. It was related to Islam because the lunar cycle is an important ritual and legal role in Islam’s calendar. This symbol is often seen on flags of predominantly Muslim countries. I choose this sculpture piece because I am Muslim and it’s a symbol of my religion. I also chose this because when I look at it make me feel like God ( Allah) is with me everytime. This symbol reminds me of Africa, how the moon and the stars shine so bright that it makes it possible to see anything outside at night. Back in Africa, my friends and I used to go outside at night. We used to dance, sing, and talk about scary late night stories under the shining sky.
I chose the as my project because I love music. Also, I played in an orchestra and played these notes in treble. What it says about me is that I admire music. Music makes everything around me lights up which this is a perfect sculpture with light for me. My music helps give me an expression of life.
