TASK: To design an organism and investigate how it evolves to produce future generations that are better adapted to their environment.
PROCESS:
1. Design an organism: You may use paper, Claymation, 123D creature (ipad app), powerpoint or any other suitable software to illustrate the organism showing in detail its key features and give it a scientific name. Underneath your organism, list all the key information regarding your organism including:
• The size of the organism (list dimensions)

• What type of environment does it live in?
• What are its key features and adaptations?
• How do the organism’s adaptations help it to survive in its environment?
• What does it eat?
• How does it communicate?
• How long does it live for?
• What types of behaviours does it show?
• List anything else that you think is important about your organism.
2. Use your organism as the common ancestor for three other variations of the organism that form by evolution.
• You may choose 3 new environments of your choice. For example desert, rainforest, arctic, tundra, forest, air, mountains or any others of your choice.
• Illustrate each of the three evolved organisms and give them a new scientific name.
• Clearly label the pictures showing the varied features.
• Write a short paragraph (100 words) for each organism explaining how the variation occurred and how it helps them adapt to their environment and increase their chance of survival. Describe the type of evolution that is occurring and what selection pressures caused the organism to evolve in the way that it did. Use scientific terms in your...

ON MY SCIENCE PROJECT, I HAD NO PROBLEM WITH IT, AFTER THAT I WOULD LIKE TO TRY IT AGAIN, BUT WITH DIFFERENT SIZE OF BOTTLES. IN SOME BOTTLES THERE WERE TOO MUCH GAS BUBBLES, AND OTHERS BOTTLES THERE WERE NO ENOUGH GAS BUBBLES IN THEM. I LEARNED THAT MY SCIENCE PROJECT MADE A CHEMICAL CHANGE REACTION. THEN WHAT WOULD HAPPEN IF YOU PUT MORE SALT, WILL IT MAKE THE BALLOONS POP, AND WOULD IT BE MORE INTERESTED IF YOU PUT VINEGER,......

Baloon

...Party balloons are mostly made of a natural latex tapped from rubber trees, and can be filled with air, helium, water, or any other suitable liquid or gas. The rubber's elasticity makes the volume adjustable. As shown in the photo to the right, they can come in different colors like the rainbow such as red, orange, yellow, green, blue, purple, etc. Filling the balloon with air can be done with the mouth, a manual or electric inflater (such as a hand pump), or with a source of compressed gas. When rubber or plastic balloons are filled with helium so that they float, they typically retain their buoyancy for only a day or so, sometimes longer. The enclosed helium atoms escape through small pores in the latex which are larger than the helium atoms. Balloons filled with air usually hold their size and shape much longer, sometimes for up to a week. Even a perfect rubber balloon eventually loses gas to the outside. The process by which a substance or solute migrates from a region of high concentration, through a barrier or membrane, to a region of lower concentration is called diffusion. The inside of balloons can be treated with a special gel (for instance, the polymer solution sold under the "Hi Float" brand) which coats the inside of the balloon to reduce the helium leakage, thus increasing float time to a week or longer. Animal-shaped balloons Beginning in the late 1970s, some more expensive (and longer-lasting) foil balloons made of thin, unstretchable, less permeable......

...You need: * A plastic tube (3 to 6 feet long) * A 1 inch PVC 90 degrees Elblow * A 1 inch female PCV tube * Some scotch tape To make sure the dimensions are correct, bring with you the balloon and the regulator when you go shopping. You can find the materials at Lowe’s or Home Depot. The reason you want to a long plastic tube is to be able to inflate the balloon on a clean plastic cover away from everything. The balloon’s neck is about 3cm (1.2 inch) wide, a 1inch wide PVC tube is large enough to keep it tight. Make sure to secure it with 2 tie wraps and a solid pair of hands. Since the inflating process can take up to one hour, the person responsible for the balloon can get very tired. The reason you want an Elbow shape is to attach the inflating balloon to something heavy to prevent it to fly away and to measure the lift. [http://www.beyond62.com/part-1-how-to-fill-a-near-space-balloon/] About sealing the balloon, : using tie wraps or heavy twine, tie the balloon neck off tightly above the filling adaptor. Remove the joint. Tie the neck again, four to six inches below the first piece of twine. Tie your payload cord to the neck between these two pieces of twine. Now bend the neck over double and tie it again, twice. You will now have the neck of the balloon bent over...

Comic Cons

...exactly in the middle of the page and takes up quite a bit of space. I think the reason for this is because it’s important to express to the reader how angry, mean and shocked Yuzan is when he finds out his son cooked the Dashi dish. The top tier consists of two panels, one rounded edge word balloon and two jagged edged word balloons. Since we are reading, not hearing, the conversation, it is a little hard to understand how things are being stated (i.e. tone, pitch, or loudness). I believe the artist makes up for this through the characteristics of word balloons. Simply based on what is said in each word balloon, I have come to the conclusion that if the word balloon has a jagged edge, then it represents a more powerful, angry or important description. If the word balloon has a smooth or rounded edge to it, then the voice is most likely softer, less important or a conversation happening in the background of the scene. The appearances of the word balloons are also methodically placed. In the panel where Yuzan is yelling, one of the word balloons is cut off by the outline, while the other spreads across and overlaps the outline of the panel. I think the artist placed the jagged edged word balloon in such a way that it gives it more power or a “boom-like” affect. The second tier from the bottom, first panel, is...

...lying in bed. The frame of the panel is a rectangle that stretches from the entire left side of the page to the right side of the page. The panel’s height is about a third of the page, and looks somewhat similar to the other frames on the page. Above the panel there is a star and the words ‘equivalent to $5.00’ written in the gutter. That phrase does not apply to this frame, it applies to the frame above this one indicating that 500 tumans is 5 dollars. In the midground I see Marji’s face, her bed sheets, her pillow, her thought bubble, and Niloufar is standing next to her. There is no background caption in this panel. The graphic weight of the entire panel is black behind the figures. The figures are white which creates graphic weight contrast against the black background.

Aircraft

...such as lift type, aircraft propulsion, usage and others. History Flying model craft and stories of manned flight go back many centuries, however the first manned ascent – and safe descent – in modern times took place by hot-air balloon in the 18th century. Each of the two World Wars led to great technical advances. Consequently the history of aircraft can be divided into five eras: Pioneers of flight, from the earliest experiments to 1914. First World War, 1914 to 1918. Aviation between the World Wars, 1918 to 1939. Second World War, 1939 to 1945. Postwar era, also called the jet age, 1945 to the present day. Methods of lift Lighter than air – aerostats Aerostats use buoyancy to float in the air in much the same way that ships float on the water. They are characterized by one or more large gasbags or canopies, filled with a relatively low-density gas such as helium, hydrogen, or hot air, which is less dense than the surrounding air. When the weight of this is added to the weight of the aircraft structure, it adds up to the same weight as the air that the craft displaces. Small hot-air balloons called sky lanterns date back to the 3rd century BC, and were only the second type of aircraft to fly, the first being kites. A balloon was originally any aerostat, while the term airship was used for large, powered aircraft...

...A Comparative Study of Varying Fabrics to the height of the Hot Air Balloon I. Introduction a. Background of the Study Fabric refers to any material made through weaving, knitting, spreading, crocheting, or bonding that may be used in production of further goods like garments. In the Philippines, we have The Philippine Textile Research Institute (PTRI), as a line agency of the Department of Science and Technology (DOST) in supporting the local textiles in achieving global competitiveness through the utilization of indigenous resources, and development of technical competence in textile production and quality assurance. Fabrics come in different kinds such as cotton, wool, linen and silk. Cotton is made from vegetable fiber and adaptable to a wide variety of purposes; it is strong, absorbent and easily washed/dyed. Wool is made from the hair of various animals, including sheep, llamas, camels, and goats; wool is very resilient, warm and it resists wrinkling. Linen is made from the flax plant, and is considered the strongest of the vegetable fibers; it is washable, it wrinkles easily and it is highly absorbent. Silk is made from the cocoon of a species of caterpillars; silk is very strong, absorbent and has a brilliant sheen. All silks come from Asia, primarily China, and are considered as one of the finest textiles. Hot air balloon is one of the oldest successful human-carrying flight technologies. It consists of the envelope, the burner and the basket or the......

Burner and fuel: Dad he provides the means for our family so that we can be lifted up so we can go where we need. Rising Balloons: To keep the balloon rising you need a way to reheat the air. Burner positioned under an open balloon envelope. As the air in the balloon cools the pilot can reheat it by firing the burner.

Wicker works very well because it is sturdy, flexible and relatively lightweight. The flexibility helps with balloon landings: In a basket made of more rigid material, passengers would feel the brunt of the impact force.

...affected by Heene's actions? The stakeholders in the “Balloon Ball Hoax” are the boy, Falcon Heene; the parents, Richard and Mayumi Heene, brothers, Bradford and Ryo Heene; Larimer County sheriff; Jim Alderman; Denver International Airport travelers and employees; National Guard unit; local police; search and rescue teams; media and news services; Colorado taxpayers; and the public. The public through the media watched and worried about the fate of the boy in the balloon. Colorado taxpayers footed the bill for the 50,000 USD cost of personnel time, equipment and other incidentals to track the balloon, search the rescue mission, and investigation of the hoax. Denver International Airport closed to avoid collision with the balloon. Travelers were delayed and flights rerouted and rescheduled. Airport employees had to remain calm and courteous as travelers became frustrated with delays, missed flight times and rescheduling. Local police, the National Guard unit, and search and rescue teams spent hours and used expensive equipment to track and hunt for the balloon and boy while Falcon was safe the whole time. Sheriff Jim Alderman had to conduct investigation under intense media scrutiny. At first, the media was incredulous that the parents were being questioned and investigated. Then Mr. Alderman was ridiculed for not detecting the hoax sooner. Falcon Heene was used by his parents to pull out the hoax that he was on a hot air balloon that had escaped it tether.
