Inquiry Project Platform

For my inquiry project, I chose to use another RamPages site. I think that this platform suits my needs for the essay. I am accustomed to it now and I did not really like the set-up of Wix or Weebly, and I do not think that a platform like Tumblr would really suit my needs…

Persuasion Map

Without the ocean we would not be able to breathe, entire ecosystems and thousands of marine life…

So many fish have been taken from the ocean that the fish populations have collapsed almost everywhere. The loss of fish changes the marine food webs. Changing food webs affect other life and processes in…

Nuggeting Sources

When I picked my primary sources, I found 4, one of those being a debate website that holds as part of a counterargument. I decided that since I have a more science-y topic and Dr. Becker asked if counterarguments were available, I should go ahead and do a nugget on it. Think of the long…

Inquiry Project Post

I really thought that the kitty litter post was interesting. I love science and I think that growing up with my grandfather using kitty litter for all kinds of wacky things, prepared me to not be surprised that something like litter could be used with nuclear waste. I also think that it is funny organic…
