Final Movie

We hope you enjoy!!!
The Forum went extremely well for us. Many people enjoyed watching our videos and they complimented us on being creative. We both expressed our love for the kelp forest and explain why it was important to biodiversity. We also talked about the pills; and since we had them on display, people were very interested in them. We both think the experience was very fun and rewarding overall because we finally got to show off our months of hard work and what we had learned. We also felt very happy that we could make a difference in the kelp forests. Even though we were presenting our topic for a few hours, the time went by fast because we were already occupied with talking to the judges, adults, parents, and teachers. We both agree that coming to an end with our project is bitter sweet because it has been such an amazing learning experience, but could also be a little stressful at times. Thanks for reading our blog and following along with our experience!

Home Stretch!

This is out final week for the project. This past week we filmed two more videos. On Monday, we made sea urchin pills which is another option for getting the nutrients and vitamins from sea urchins if you don't like the taste. On Tuesday, we cooked sea urchin pizza and we just uploaded our videos. We are presenting our project on Tuesday in our school's library where we'll be playing our cooking videos and on Thursday our final movie is due and we'll be showing it in front of our class. The video attached is our sea urchin pizza cooking video.

Making Sea Urchin Capsules!

We decided that it would be a good idea to make sea urchin pills so that people could get the nutrients from cooking with sea urchin and from taking a capsule. See our process by watching the video attached!

Problem :(((

Main Problem: Sea Urchin Overpopulation

We chose sea urchin overpopulation because it is a very general topic and there are many different diverse kelp forests dealing with these issues. Sea urchin overpopulation is a topic that so many kelp forests are facing in the world, so we chose it because we can try to help find solutions that can benefit all of the kelp forests; not just ones in a particular area. We will mainly focus on kelp forests in California before we embark on more adventurous journeys that can benefit more than just kelp forests in one area. Hopefully, we can help keep kelp forests alive and thriving for the years to come.
