Day 2 Reflections

On day 2 we meet our project mentor who walked us through about digital imaging and thaught us more detailed information about our project, it was really interesting and difficult to come by for a University Prof. to talk to us face to face and guide us on our project . In the afternoon we had the Applied Project Challenge, we were seperated into groups of 3s and 4s to do our research. The good thing about the group work was that everyone of us were focus on our work and everyone were able to do their part. The bad thing was that we thought that we have finished our research but when the teacher assistants came around and asked us some questions, we were not able to answer them. I realised that we did not do enough research and just jumped to the next part which was incorrect of us. Overall I felt that we did a decent job today and I have also learnt a lot of things such as teamwork that I can apply on my future other projects such as ISS.

Day 1 Reflections

On day 1 the camp have not fully started yet so nothing much actually happened. In the afternoon there were 3 plenary sessions which interested me quite a lot. For the first session was on the topic on Earth Science which is about Earthquake Research On the Coral Reefs of Sumatra by Prof  Kerry Sieh. I learnt from this that Earth science can be very important and useful as you can learn to predict earth-quakes so we can take early precautions about it. The second session was about IT for Animation by Prof Seah Hock Soon. From this i learnt that IT for Animation is used in a lot of the animes we watch now days and it is a very important technology and also a very costy one. The third session was about Nano-technology by Prof David Butler. I learnt that nano technology can be very important in our daily lifes and can help a lot in improving humanity's developement.

For Pre-camp I feel that the interesting thing about my project is the technology involved in it and the pixels that make up a image. I think i can learn a lot of tech information from this project and also learn and improve in doing group projects that can help me a lot in the future.
