How did the project go?
I believe my project went over well, I had a rocky start due to medical reasons and not being able to go on a computer. Near the middle of the process, I was finally able to go on my laptop and start getting work done. I feel like I would’ve made my design less cartoony and more realistic or maybe had both of the options so people had more of something to choose from. I also would’ve asked different types of workplaces, not only office jobs for the surveys. I feel like my surveys still worked out pretty well because I got a good size group to make replies.
How was the event?
I think the event went over okay but when the middle school classes came to the STEAM fair a couple of kids tried to take (steal really) my keychains and bookmarks. I mean I should take that as a compliment but I was a bit upset that they tried to do that as I trusted the people looking at my project to hold the item in case they wanted a better look. Everyone else was lovely and asked me questions about how I made my projects and what made me choose the topic. I think the number of people was much more than what I expected, we had 12 classes (middle and high school) also around 70% of parents came to the fair; along with teachers and a few volunteers. I believe my plan helped me with my project because I had a medical conflict. I had to get back on track much faster than others because of that and the plan helped me visualize where I needed to be.
How was the presentation?
I believe my presentation was good, people gave me feedback, asked me questions, and liked my designs and information. They also liked how I presented my project, some people said I could’ve made it less busy on my poster board so I will take that into account for next year. I was able to present easily to classmates and students but once it became teachers or parents I began to get a little more worried. Adults tend to give actually feedback and listen to what you’re saying; I thought I would slip up and have them question it. Once my teachers came up to me I began to panic and talk very fast with random giggles every now and then. I think I was only talking like that because I felt a little unprepared, the day I set up my passion project I was too focused on my own and not looking at others to see what other people have on their table. I forgot to bring my failed attempts and photos of my process; other than that I felt very good about everything. I feel my project was very captivating to younger age of viewers due to the designs and colour of the poster. To the older viewers, I believe what made them think my project was cool was the data charts.
