Read the introduction, objectives and theoretical background to the project and then answer the following questions:
  •      What interests you about this project?
I was drawn by the  Scanning Electron Microscope (SEM) i have always wanted to operate a electron microscope, i also think material science is an very interesting subject, the composite materials part also sounded very fascinating.
  •       What do you want to learn by doing this project?
I hope to learn how to operate an electron microscope, the testing procedures of material testing and just materials in general 
  •       What questions do you have about this project?
One main question i have is how does all these different materials actually apply in real life uses.
  •      What do you personally want to have achieved by the end of this project?
I hope to be able to gain better knowledge about material science and learn more about the daily routines professionals have to go though to give me an idea if i wanted to pursue this as a career.

Reflections on Plenary Sessions

For each plenary session, consolidate your learning by answering the following questions:
  •     What are your key learning points?
  • learnt a lot more about the efforts made to help make our world a safer place by investigating about all the different earthquake happenings near sumatra by using all sort of methods such as the dead corals of the sea, GSP location system, and trying to analyze them using methods like carbon dating to find out when debris was deposited to turn them into useful information that can predict this disasters and try to safe as many people as possible.

  1. I gain a better insight on the difference of stop-motion, 2d animation and 3d-animation The video showing the making of the famous 2d animation was very informative on how people made this animation back in the old days without the aid of modern computer technology, the software that ntu made was very intriguing, you can make an simple animation in just 30seconds.
3. I learnt more about the surface area and its relationship to nano particles and also how Nano tech helped to discover the negative effects of facial products, it can even hep achieve to discover cancer cell in the body when there is only a few of them, it can also make bullet proof armor to protect our soldiers.

  •      What new questions do you have about the topic?
I want to know more about the practical applications and its impact on our actual society.
