For my group’s capstone we decided to make a go kart. In the beginning we struggled with figuring out what the end product would be, we thought about buying an already made kart and disassembling it, or scrapping the idea and building something more like a truck. We bought components for a go kart like a frame and axle and started working out blueprints for a design. We ran into a lot of problems with the frame we bought, a lot of the measurements were not customary and it was a little small. Designing a new frame was the next idea. We used CAD (Computer-Aided Drawing) programs like Autodesk Fusion 360 and Solidworks 2017 to create 3-dimensional blueprints for the kart that can be printed out. This process is/was not easy, you have to make objects in real life in a computer program, this requires seemingly endless measuring, analyzing, and just thinking about every piece of the kart. We assembled the frame in the program, you can see pictures attached here. During this capstone I learned how to more effectively collaborate with a larger team than I’m used to, how to use 3-dimensional design programs, and how to change ideas with a group so everyone is heard.

As the year comes to an end I have created a project that is a reflection of myself and my passion for beauty, hair, and makeup. I inspire myself each and everyday to do my best. We are planning on making a Beauty Campaign that showcases that origin does not determine your inner beauty. My team member, William and I plan on furthering our education in the beauty industry. This is something I love to do on my spare time and when I’m at work. The only thing that has changed in my vision about my capstone is the time because the end of the school year is approaching and we needed to hurry up. Will does makeup and I do hair so we both decided to split it up and have a mini photoshoot. We also wanted all of our models to be different races so it could stand out. By doing this I hoped to not only do I plan to advance in my beauty career but also I plan on being more patient with working with clients and making sure I can do this for the rest of my life. I hope to learn a thing about entrepreneurship and how I can eventually make my own business. I also hope to learn how to be more organized and on time with my work. By the end of this I hope I get to show everyone my talent and how this really means so much to me.
For our capstone, we wanted to create something that everyone will be able to benefit from as well as ourselfs due to this being our last year at Science Leadership Academy at Beeber. We wanted to make our mark on the school that's where my partner and I had come up the idea of creating a small workshop, during lunch that will involve STD and HIV.We also we are going to put our interview that we took at the clinic center so we are able to show students a good a real-life example of this disease and how important public health is we are also creating a website that we will present to the school so we hope this answer all the questions that anyone may have about this type of diseases. The reason for us to create a website was that we strongly felt as if nobody in this generations doesnt likes to read books anymore so we made it easier since the internet is very useful when getting information across the world.
