The focus this week is to think about natural phenomena as a model system. Start by reflecting on
intentional observations you have made as part of sharpening your observation skills.
The phenomenon can be the same as the one you are doing for your Final Applied Project or something
very different that you are curious about or have recently learned about.
Make a few notes about the key features of the phenomenon and how the features fit together.
For this week, post the following for your Main post:
Identify a multi-faceted natural phenomena. What is the phenomenon?
What are the key features or facets of this phenomenon? Be specific and provide good detail.
Draw a flow diagram or create a model of how these features or facets fit together. Be sure you include all
important features. The model should represent a functional natural system or phenomenon. All work must
be your own creation. Do not use models or diagrams from the internet. You will not receive any credit for
diagrams or models that you have not created.
IMPORTANT: For any physical models that you create by hand (craft or drawing on paper), you must
include your name and a current date in the photo or video with the drawing or model.
There are many ways to accomplish this. Drawing or other art. A clay, wire, paper, or other material model.
