Welcome to the 10th grade cornerstone project! There are somethings that you should expect from this project…sweat, tears, stress and a lot of hard work. It’s no walk in the park and it’s not going to be easy. You need to take it seriously, your grade will reflect how much effort you put in this. There is no coasting this, no getting off easy. There is always something that needs to be improved, and you need to accept that, nobody gets a perfect 100.
This is Adeila Owens. Everything that is aforementioned, is not a joke. This project is not what you think it is, it is not like any other project that you think you can just get by on. I have learned a lot from this project. I have learned a lot about the elbow and the anatomy and such but I have also learned a lot about working with people. When you work with your team, it is critical. You will be spending about 4 months with these 4 people. Communication is key. When you don’t communicate with your team, your product will not come out the way you envisioned it. You also need to understand and be flexible. Understanding what is happening with your team members is important so they do not get upset with you and conflicts arise.
Eleanor Bailey here! This project is no easy task. I have been up many nights working on perfecting our project and getting ready for our presentation. I have learned more than I thought I would about time management, teamwork, problem solving, and even sewing. It isn’t hard to give advice that I wish I had before starting this project. There are three big things that you should know; be prepared to encounter problems, find a way that works for you to stay physically and mentally organized, and try to be in a group with people that you don’t hate but also are not your very best friends. Trust me when I say that teaming up with acquaintances will improve your teamwork tenfold. If you work with your bestfriend, as tempting as it may be, you will get distracted and that will not be good for your project or your friendship when the project isn’t going as well as you had hoped. Do not be afraid to talk to Ms. Miesner about your questions, thoughts, or even stress. She will do everything in her ability to help you out. She is probably the most valuable resource you have for this project, so love and appreciate all she does for you. That about sums it up, so good luck ladies!
Hey it’s Mariana Monroy! Throughout this project I learned many things about anatomy and the movement of joints, but besides learning about bones I learned about time management and always taking criticism as something good that believe me will help you in the long run. I also learned that stressing and complaining will not accomplish anything so instead of whinnying about how much you dislike something JUST DO IT and get it over with. Some advice for y’all is to make sure you’re prepared for anything to comes at you. Don’t wait till the last minute because that will hurt you and your grade. Remember if you want to succeed in this project, you will have to put in hard work and sacrifice. Have fun!!!
Hi, this is Julia Mendoza. There are some things you should know about when trying to complete this project. IT’S GOING TO BE EXTREMELY STRESSFUL. Not only will you cry a couple of times but you’ll want to quit school altogether and ponder on why you chose biomed as your pathway. Please choose people to work with that you know are intelligent, have a good work ethic, and care about the project as much as you do. I hated this project, but in the end I got one of the best grades in the class. This is not something you can put aside and work on later, you have to continually be improving it throughout time. I’ve learned so much about anatomy and how to manage my time.
Overall communicate and bust your butt of, do as much as you can to get what you want because nothing will be handed to you. Good Luck!!!
