Anushka- Synesthesia

A few years ago, I read a book called A Mango-Shaped Space which was about a girl with synesthesia. While reading this book, I was really interested in the condition and what it was. This condition isn’t something that could affect us majorly, since it’s something we get at birth. However, I feel it’s important to know about it and accept it if we are ever introduced to someone with it. Before this project I already knew a little about grapheme-colour synesthesia because of the book, but I did learn more about it and the other types of synesthesia.

In my opinion, synesthesia is a really interesting topic. I learnt about how many different forms of synesthesia there are and what areas of the brain each one involves. This added to what I already know about synesthesia as before I thought there was only one form of it but through this project I learned about all of the other forms and found some ones that were really unique. It was really surprising to find a form of synesthesia that involved hearing and tasting.  When I first started learning about the different types of synesthesia, I thought that all of these forms were just one big thing that made up a synesthete but found out that they were actually 20 separate forms. I also learnt about the difficulties of this condition such as confusion in maths or trouble remembering names and personalities. Now I know about this intriguing condition I can start to learn about more conditions like this.



Sleep Health Buzz- Ayush

My health buzz is about why you need to sleep and its also about that what happens if you do not sleep.basically its all about what happened with people in the world that did not even get sleep for 6 hours of sleep and because of that there were some problems about that and my presentation is also about how sleep benefits us like some improvements in our body.

I choose sleep because I thought that nowadays teachers sometimes give lots of home work at once and then the students cant complete it so they have to wake up night and do the homework and because of that they dont even get six hours of sleep and then they are tired the whole day.

Also that if there is to much homework and then it is done when you are looking at the laptop  or phone it affects are brain.


I thought to choose sleep as maybe I can tell students that what to do to get a good sleep as then they can get the amount of sleep they need to get (6 hours)so they don’t stay tired the whole day and then they can get a good sleep.


Scoliosis – Roma

Scoliosis is what my presentation is based about. Scoliosis is the lateral curvature in your spine. It is important for me to inform students about Scoliosis, because Scoliosis is most vulnerable in ages from 10 – 12 years old. If you do not take care of your posture, you might get this condition or worse end up in serious troubles. That’s why in my presentation, I will explain the facts and, ways to prevent it from happening to you. The reason why I picked this topic was because, I myself had Scoliosis although it is mild or minor. The reason it effects us is because Scoliosis is most vulnerable from ages 10-12 years old. As you know. many people have countered their conditions by putting time into their exercise, and then, their is a possibility surgery can be avoided. Some interesting facts about scoliosis are..

  • It can be inherited
  • Only small percentage of victims require surgery
  • Most cases of scoliosis have no known cause

It is scientifically proven that if your parents have this condition, you are more likely to inherit it. As I had said previously, it is important for you to know because this presentation could potentially help you avoid or prevent you from getting it. Hopefully, there is many exercises to help reverse or prevent your condition, to get worse. Some exercises I do to help me is planks, swimming, and other activities that are based on spine straightening.


Rugby glue – Henrik

I choose this topic because i would like to stop street kid from sniffing rugby because 10,000 streets kids die a year from sniffing it and also would like to stop uses of drugs around the phillipines did  you know that the Phillipines has the most street kid realated deaths around the world and thats just from sniffing rugby. I think that is obsured that the Philipines hato be the country with most street kid realted deaths. In conclusion I would like to put a stop to and maybe give them some proper food.

Rand – Compound Fractures

I choose this issue because I am an extreme athlete that plays multiple sports who has the ability to get a compound fracture in an instant. Also I admire some of the people that had experienced the compound fracture which got me interested into this conflict. Moreover, if I am not aware as known athlete of this situation, I may be at risk of getting this injury. In which the compound fracture can threaten my sporting career. Also, as sports play a big role in my life, I can’t imagine not playing sports and that would affect my health. I previously knew that a compound fracture is when the bone goes out through the skin as seen through Kevin Ware who witnessed the injury. A compound fracture is indeed related to a fracture but just worst. They both are similar because your bone is cracked. However in a compound fracture the bone shifts more dramatically and can possibly go out of your skin. This issue is obviously impactful to me and my peers because we are surrounded by sports and the main cause is playing dangerously in which we do a lot. This occurs because we will do anything it takes to win. Some of the effects are parents tend to be appalled of injury and don’t want child to get injured so they can do acrobatic sports like basketball. Also, If injury happens to them they decrease in mental, physical, emotional and social trying to recover from injury. Another effect is If it occurs, it could possibly threaten their chance to ever play sport again. Lastly,if you don’t give proper care to it the bone doesn’t recover.

To begin with I learned that this injury occurs a lot but mostly happening in fast paced sports. It is shown that 1/10 of the injuries that occur are compound fractures in the united states, which is caused from too much tension on the bones. Furthermore I learned that if it happened to you, you desperately need the right care or else you won’t return to sports. Before, I had no knowledge about the injury and how it was caused until I learned about. Ultimately this made me more aware when I am playing sports. In my opinion the compound fracture can be avoided if you land correctly every time not putting too much tension on the bones. Also, think about what you’re doing before it happens so that you won’t have to be getting medical care. I was surprised that once it happens to you if you don’t get the right care, consequently you won’t be able to play sports ever again. Another, concept that shocked me is that this injury happens in variety of sports I thought it was just basketball at first. Like I said before I used to think that compound fracture is when the bone when through your skin and only thinking it happened basketball. As my theory evolved I now think that it when your bone dramatically shifts in the bone or sticks through your skin. This information also helps in some situation because I am more aware about the action I do.  I previously new it happens in fast paced sports in which I play quite frequently. However their is one misunderstanding I have and that is how long does that average compound fractured to recover back to normal, knowing that this is one of most dangerous injuries, really it just ranges in time depending on how bad the injury is. Importantly, there is no solution to this injury but you can be smart about action do meanwhile trying to avoid risky actions. Lastly this has a big effect on my physical fitness because i’m now more aware about what I do, so I prevent this injury from happening. With a doubt this is one of most gruesome injuries that is common to get, so avoid it!open_fx
