Let me introduce myself.
I am a senior at Notre Dame High School Belmont and am currently documenting my journey through AP Biology. Biology is my favorite subject and I look to pursue a biology-related major in the future and work in medicine. Watch my Emaze slideshow to learn more about me!
IT’S ALREADY ALMOST JUNE?!
We’ve traversed far and long to reach the final destination – the end of AP Bio! How did time fly so fast? I still remember my first blog post about stem cell research. Look how immensely I’ve progressed in my blogging skills!
I’ve always wanted to make a super fancy and complex website because I love design. However, technology and I don’t always get along, and I get frustrated navigating the controls when I build my site. Through the difficulties, I gave my best effort to make my site visually engaging and appealing (personally, I think that’s very important).
In the early stages of my website, I added no links or pictures, and the text was quite bulky and verbose. Now, I know to separate the text with captioned pictures and allow the audience to discover more information by linking other web pages or even my other blog posts. I learned about embedding videos, screencasting on QuickTime, and using sites like Wideo, Pictochart, and Voicethread. I feel like an expert now!
My favorite part about my site was adding all the different media I created over the year. Mrs. Girard allowed us to explore all the different internet tools that let us create professional-looking products, like my plant and Marburg virus infographics and neuroscience Stop Motion. I have never created an Emaze, which is featured above, until AP Biology. One of the posts I am most proud of was my contribution to the IDEO challenge that asks how we can reduce food waste. I drew out different scenes of a “Food Waste Forecast” that allows viewers see how much food is wasted throughout their county.
Hopefully you can see my progress too! Feel free to comment suggestions for the future. I would love to keep improving!
FOR FUTURE TEAM AP BIO,
I have made a video to that will guide you through this year! I know you’ll succeed in AP Bio!
