We are a group of three seventh grade students that attend Windward school. Our names are Capp, Sammy, and Vivy. We are part of a project for our science class called challenge based learning (CBL). The broad topic that we want to focus on is disaster resilience. We wanted to work on disaster resilience because we have personally been affected by some of these disasters in the Los Angeles area, and having our families and close friends be affected is something we want to change. This week, we have begun deciding what specifically we want to research. After making several mind maps, we were able to narrow it down to two topics: droughts and wildfires. We combined things that could prevent both disasters and after researching different elements of the two topics, we have most recently narrowed it down to CO2 prevention. From here, we are now starting to research deforestation, burning oil, fossil fuels, and more.
