Senior Action Project

For my Senior Action Project, I decided to do a Pre-K book club with one of my classmates. Reading and children are two things I am very passionate about, so I thought this was the perfect way to combine them. Every Wednesday after school in January and February, me and a couple of my friends went down to Trinity and read books to the kids for a half an hour. There are many benefits of reading to young children, but you can learn about that in our presentation. I hope you enjoy listening to us talk about the presentation as much as we enjoyed the book club!

Programming Project Source Code

What I will be showing in this post about my final program is the source code, which is basically the code that you write to get the program to output that you want it to.  Just a warning, my code is a little long, so it will take a while to read it if you decide to.  I’ve embedded it in the bottom of this post, along with a file with my project and a file saying how to run it.

Technicalities of My Programming Project

For my Programming Cumulative Project, I decided to do a Buzzfeed type Personality Quiz that will tell the user which Lincoln Lutheran teacher they are.  The source code was based on mostly things that I had already learned how to do, except for one thing- the dictionary function, which I’ll get more into in the next paragraph.  The output provides the user with their result, along with a short 1-2 sentence description of the teacher they are most like.

My Cumulative Project

For my cumulative Programming Project, I decided to create a personality quiz.  I did this because I had always thought it would be interesting to try and create the quiz.  I had gotten the idea from one of my friends on one of the questions of the week that we do to create a personality quiz that tells the user what teacher at Lincoln Lutheran they were and I thought that it would be a lot of fun, so I decided to do it.  I sent out a survey to all the teachers at LL asking a few questions about themselves that I thought would be good questions to ask my classmates and I got 17 responses.

In my senior year of high school, I decided to take a programming class (we use Python).  I had been approached by multiple people who took programming in the past and told me that I should take it because it was useful for college and beyond.  So far, it has been tough.  We have a lot of homework most of the time, but I like to think that I have good time management skills, so it hasn’t been as hard as it could be.  I am writing this when we are just over halfway through the class, because it’s only a semester long.

Multimedia Apps Video

For my Multimedia Applications class, I was told to create a video project with iMovie.  For this project, I decided to make a baking show with some of my friends titled Jingle Bell Bake Off.  There are three rounds for this competition- Christmas cookies, a dish made with eggnog, candy cane, and marshmallows, and brownies.

To film this video, my friends and I got together and spent about four hours at someone’s house baking and getting footage.  I filmed most of the actual baking, behind the scenes, and interviews.   I am very proud of this video and it was really fun to make, so I hope you enjoy it too.  The finished product is linked down below.
