    Desire 2 Inquire
    The inquiry project (IP) is an interdisciplinary culminating project that will take place during the 2nd semester of 8th grade. Each student will choose a topic based on their interests and passions with some guidance from their teachers and/or mentors. The purpose of the IP is to allow students to do a long-term project that peaks their curiosity and encourages creativity, organization, and superior depth of research and knowledge in one area. It is a great way for the students to learn about one specific area of interest from many different perspectives.

    The increase in National Fossil Fuel consumption over the last ten years has continued to add to the amount of greenhouse gasses being omitted into the atmosphere. By using a larger number of Hybrid and electric cars, we will be able to reduce our carbon footprint. Cleaner vehicles will also drastically reduce our nation’s dependency on foreign oil. In addition, less oil consumption means lower fuel costs, which could play a roll in strengthening our economy.

    Information {h1.jpg}
    Though hybrid cars may seem like a new creation, they have quite a lengthy history. Hybrid cars began as electric cars, built in Scotland by a man named Robert Anderson. The first electric car was developed in 1839, when a powerful battery was put in the place of an engine. Later on, in 1903, the first hybrid of gasoline and electric power was created by the Krieger Company. The popularity of this car torpedoed with the creation of Henry Ford’s self-starting gas engine. Then, in 1966, the United States government introduced a bill suggesting the use of hybrid cars to reduce air pollution. When the 70’s hit and gas prices skyrocketed, auto manufacturers began working on constructing their own model of a hybrid car. In 1997, Toyota introduced the Prius and started a whole new hybrid revolution. Today, hybrid cars are looked at as the cars of the future.

    Abortion
    An abortion is the procedure to end a pregnancy. Throughout history abortion has been a heated debate which has gone under many laws. For example in the 18th-19th centuries doctors and clerics successfully put a ban on abortion. Then in the 20th century woman’s rights groups repealed the ban, and today we still don’t know what to think about abortion, whether it is killing the baby or not.

    Heavy Bleeding- After an abortion, if the cervix is torn or the uterus is punctured, there is a risk of severe bleeding, known as hemorrhaging. If this happens, a blood transfusion may be required.
    Infection- Infection may occur from the insertion of medical instruments into the uterus, or from fetal parts that are mistakenly left inside (incomplete abortion).

    The 2 most debated topics of abortion are if it kills pre-mature babies and if the woman has the right to chose to keep the baby or abort it. Many religions, while they were in control, made laws about abortion. For example, in 1869, Pope Pius XI declared that abortion was an immortal sin. In the Jewish law it says that “a baby becomes a full-fledged human being when the head emerges from the womb. Before then, the fetus is considered ‘partial life.’” Pro-life is a valid point because you are taking the life of another, but on the pro-choice side the embryo is totally dependant on the woman. Another debate is whether the government has the right to decide if the woman should have the abortion or not.

    How do you develop anorexia? Can it be cured? These are two frequently asked questions about Anorexia Nervosa. The first question, how do you develop anorexia, is still not precisely knos.wn today. This disease is neurological. So, this disorder is most likely developed from pressure. Pressure to be thin like models and popular celebrities.

    This graph shows that 95% of anorexia sufferers are female. Before researching anorexia, I did not even know men could develop this disease. Men and Women have the same exact problems with anorexia; they starve their selves to become thinner. There is no difference. But why are female more prone to anorexia? This is still not known today. My hypothesis is that woman read more glamor magazines and high fashion magazines than men. In high fashion and glamor, the models are very thin. So, these magazines show “beautiful”, thin models and the reader pick up on the images. The reader then becomes self-conscience and points all their imperfections. Then they become obsessive about it and start to starve their self.
