SCIENCE Blog Post Mineral Research

Hello in science,  we learned about minerals. In this unit we looked at what kind of minerals are in our school technology and where are they from.

My technology

The technology that i chose is cell phone. I chose cell phone because its the most common technology  that students have in school and also outside the school. We use this technology  for researching taking photos, education and etc. Cell phone contains loads of minerals. Gold,Tin,Tungsten,Tantalum are one of the most common minerals. These minerals are used for parts in cell phone. Tantalum stores electricity in your phone.Tungsten makes your phone vibrate.And tin is used for sodor. Gold is for wyaring.


These minerals are from diffrent countries. Congo or Democratic Republic of Congo is the country where these minerals comes the most, but because Congo has conflict mineral. They have wars and kudeta.



First problem is that almost all of the hired people are forced or threatened to work in mines. The people who are watching  miners so they work properly are wearing military clothes and  have gun with them. It shows that if you disobey, They beat people and miners get injured badly. 

Second problem is the  place that they work has  pretty bad condition.  They work in difficult location. Also they have to use horrible tools to dig the ground. Their job contains a lot of lifting that causes injuries and even deaths too.

Third problem is that Congo is one of the most dangerous country to be a women. Everyday women and girls has to face the threat from military, and even police. They use rape as a weapon. Some armed groups, feel guilty of forced to rape, and leading girls and women injury and even death.


Congo is having a lot trouble because of the technology that we are using in school. To help our school should  I think school should reuse the devices.  Also school should make a charity that helps Congo’s people. They should also provide food , clothes, books, educational stuff and etc to Especially for  little kids and women.                                               I think think also we should tell the situation of Congo to whole school.

I & S Empire unit reflection

Backward-Looking: Before this unit I knew that Magellan was the first person to find Philippines and that Lapu – Lapu was the one who killed Magellan.  Also I knew I little about Korean and Chinese empire too. Before I didn’t really know about Spanish empire. This project helped me to learn alot of stuff

Inward-Looking: I was most satisfied by my one slide that I made. It was about clothing that Spain influenced to Philippines.  I liked this slide because I had a really good blog that showed really good facts about clothing. Also I was satisfied by our work. Me and Airi really worked together hard and made a really good presentation. I am really glad that I had such a good partner.

Outward-Looking: I did diffrent by finding some small facts to make a good presentation. I tried to first find the fact and then an evidence. And I think that that is the difference. I also tried to find alot of blogs and try find a informations. And I asked Airi to do the script and I did the presentation slides.

Forward-Looking: One thing I want to improve is to to my time more wisely. Some times I would get distracted and not pay attention to my work next time if I have I&S project, I want to more concentrate and make my work better.

This is a link to my presentation.

Grade 7 Expedition

IN this expedition, I went to Norikura in Nagano.

I thought it would be super hard like in 6 grade but it was opposite. It was super fun!!!!

I enjoyed mountain biking and hallway club. I was in advanced level in mountain biking so it was little challenging but really fun.

Also there was this club called Hallway club. Its when boys and girls meet in first floor room hallway and chat and have fun. It was really funny because we did some silly things like deodorant terror and everyone was suffering from the small. I did well catching spiders in my room. And I had lot of challenge with rock climbing . I thought I was good at it but I was really bad this time and didn’t succeed even once. I learned that being in community with boys and girls was a very good idea, because you get to know each other better and also get to know the opposite gender better too. This expedition made me grow with my mind. I learned how to talk and communicate with people better. I think expeditions are important because you learn collaboration and communication. From expedition I started to use risk taker skill . I started to help people and take a risk like I did something that anyone wanted to do. I will continue these with try to help people and trying new things.g7-norikura-kogen-216-s g7-norikura-kogen-60-s
