Ilya's Reflection


My Key Learning Points

1) Importance of water
Many people all over the world have no access to clean drinking water and proper sanitation. This results in many deaths all over the world. This has lead to a major problem all over the world. Singapore 50 years ago had the same problem in the Singapore River until finally it was decided that it was to be cleaned up. I have also learned that a major way of bacteria transmission.

2) Revolution of Microelectronics Technology
Bio, Radio, Audio, Info, Nano, Water, Auto, Video, Energy. (The 10 Os). Electronics is everywhere and is constantly moving and progressing society. This made me realize how Electronics affect the world.

3) Biomedical Engineering and Technology
The advancements in Biomedical Engineering have made society progress in terms of Survivability and Mortality Rate as many drugs have been improved to improve the health of civilians. There would also be further advancements in the future in this field.

4) IT for Animation
There are many different types of animation, 2D and 3D where they each have their pros and cons. Some are labour intensive and others are expensive. This caused me to look differently at animators.

5) Disappearing Glaciers, Rising Sea Levels and Why Gravity is even more important than you think
Sea level rise is not the same in every part of the world. The Earth's mass would shift as a result of the glaciers melting. The surface of the Earth would change.

Deepest Impression
 The plenary session that leaves the deepest impression on me is Plenary Session 5. It caused me to realize how important the glaciers melting were, how they would affect the entire world and why environmental conversation is so important

My Personal Reflection
 I chose this project because it sounded interesting and I thought that I would be able to benefit from this session. In my group, I'm the presenter.
