Post reflections



Some things I find interseting about this project is that how we're able to make to change a picture with a simple of clicks and the fact that almost everyone has been using it, it would be nice to learn to use this ingenious softwear 

I think I can learn how to keep up because all of my group mates are experienced wight this and Im not. Ill find how it feels to keep up and cope faster

I wonder how how we're going to use this educationally and how this helps us 

I have learned about the first plenary session, which zoomed in specifically on Earthquake research on the Coral Reefs of Sutra, is that who an earth cycle starts with the island which slowly submerges into the water until the Sound megathrust would soon break and cause a earthquake which would cause it to 'pop' right up again, in other words, sink and rise in accordance to the earth cycle. With this rise of sea level the coastal areas of most of the countries will be submerged under water and the human inhabitants of these places have to leave and look for other places. This rise in sea level is becoming the major threat of this century mainly due to rise in temperature every year. 


One point I learned about the second plenary session, I had learned about animation was that 2D animation was more costly than 3D animation.It costs more time and money to produce a 2d animated show or feature than in 3d. With 2d I mean classic cel/paper animation. But even if you do everything digitally in 2d then it's still a lot of work. Because it's more work to draw every drawing again than animating on the computer. In 3d you'll have to build everything you see but after that you can use the characters and props as many time without rebuilding it.
In 3d the animator can just focus on the animation without worrying to much about the camera. You can always change camera shots without having to redraw everything. In 2d every shot has to be planned because if you change something the animator has to start over again and that takes time and time is money.

One point I learned about the 3rd session. nanotechnology is basically how we study and manipulate matter at its tiniest scale. An atom is about 0.1 of a nanometer in diameter, and considering that a nanometer is one-billionth of a meter, that's about as small as you can get Nanotech is already used to help treat cancer and parasitic infections. Some drugs are manufactured as Nanoparticles, which are thought to be more easily absorbed into the body because of their size.

Overall, from all this information I am happy to have learned all this new information so I could apply it to my project so I would be better at it
