trying the machines and programs

this year I had a chance to try all of the software and machines that I had access to. it was really cool for me to learn about computer programming because I haven’t had a chance to do that sort of thing before. i was very proud of the things that I have learned this year.

here is may original design for my stores logo. i imported this picture into inkscape and auto trced the image to create a sticker and embroidered emblem.

this is the original logo design. I took a picture of my design and auto-traced it on Inkscape.  I colored in the outline of my creation to make a sticker on the sticker cutter.

here is my sticker.

here is my window sticker I was very proud of how it turned out. I took the same software that I used to make the sticker and imported it to the embroidery machine. 


after 45 minutes on the embroidery machine, my logo was done and I was so happy with how it turned out.

Passion project

street view

when I was thinking about what to do for my passion project I thought about our worlds greatest issues and problems. I noticed that plastic pollution is one of the worst things that we are dealing with right now. an outstanding amount of this plastic is from food and supply packaging. one way we can prevent this is by making eco friendly brands more accessible. so my partner and I came up with a project proposal to create an eco friendly store. the main goal of this store is to reduce plastic package weights and replace them with reusable packaging like paper bags and glass jars. We made a Minecraft model of what our store would look like. the main goal was to come up with a zero waste store and I think we did good tp accomplish that. Our store is called Eco Foods and it is designed to be the most eco friendly store.

Here is an eco foods name tag for my employees. I made it out of cardboard so it can be reused and then I used the laser cutter to engrave and cut out my design.

2022 Highlights

in the second term of STEAM I learned a lot more about computer programming, auto cad, etc.

This is a very important family piece to me. my great grandpa made it for his wife 80 years ago. by the time I got it, it had a bit o water damage and needed to be repaired. my grandpa asked me to fix it up in tech ed and that’s what I did! in the end I am very proud of the ay this stool turned out.

The first time I used the embroidery machine I made this. it is my passion project store logo. I designed it myself and outlined the original drawing on inscape.

this is the original logo idea.

in science class we watched butterfly’s grow from caterpillars to beautiful butterflies. it was really cool to study .

2021 highlights

this is my first year of high school and I have loved it. STEAM was a great opportunity for me to learn new ways of doing things as well as programming on computers for the first time. i have learnt so much this year. here are some of my 2021 highlights.

Tis is my ecosystem project our grp8ups goal was to create a model of he wetlands in bc. we taught the rest of STEAM about the ways wetlands work and thrive it was a very fun project and we did really well overall.

The first weeks of school was a whirlwind. in the first week there was a fire in a classroom on the second floor. we spent a long time outside waiting for it to be over.

How Fast Does Steel Wool Corrode In Microgravity- SSEP Project Proposal

My SSEP group wanted to learn about the rust growth rate in a gravity-free enviroment. Here is our project proposal



Space over the past years has had a substantial increase in people’s interest. It’s noticeable that the world is changing quickly, and projects are being performed where few people have traveled. Knowing that space is the future of human existence, the rate in which steel oxidizes in space is crucial. This experiment contains steel wool which is in a section of the tube. In the other compartment of the tube is saltwater to speed up the way in which steel corrodes. Seeing how many things in our day-to-day lives are built using steel it is fair to say that knowing the rates in which steel rusts is important. After the tests are complete a comparison will be made between the two, determining if microgravity oxidizes steel quicker. As humans require oxygen for survival it is clear that oxygen will be an essential thing that is brought up. With this it means that steel will corrode and risks will factor in.

What Inspires Me?

Perseverance is very important to me. It is also something that can be really hard to do. Some of the people who inspire me have persevered through life-threatening injuries. One of the many people that have inspired me to persevere has been Bethany Hamilton. Hamilton has shown that no amount of injury can be a setback and to always power through.

Bethany Hamilton is a professional surfer who lost her arm in a shark attack when she was 13. she had thought that she would never be able to surf after the accident. However, she persevered to become one of the world’s top female surfers. she also is an inspirational speaker who talks about perseverance Bethany’s Story | Bethany Hamilton

This is Bethany with the surfboard she was attacked on.


STEAM is a program for students who want to do project-based learning. STEAM stands for Science, Technology, Arts, and Math. these are the subjects that are included in the program. There are many experiments and opportunities to build things. So far my peers and I have done many projects that include both science and math. As well as many other projects. We have been able to learn about our ecosystems and measure PH levels in the water. STEAM is an opportunity to learn about science and math in a new way.
