Our group was formally named Environment, Community, and Biomimicry. Since last week, we’ve renamed, or at least, reframed how we are presenting our research and projects together. Instead of organizing by scale, from smallest to largest ‘impact’, our idea is to organize through the lens of a reciprocal relationship between humans and the environment.
I was placed into the Environment, Community, and Biomimicry group. Although each of our projects are related to each other through one way or the other, they still differ vastly in content. Our organizational idea has still yet to be finalized but a general idea is for us to organize our projects by scale, going from small to big, molecular to global. Because my project has more to do with the individual, mine would likely be in the ‘small scale’.

During the past weeks of quarantine, the amount of bread being baked and made has risen significantly.

In Chapter 23 of the Honors Book, a discussion of privacy and the fast emergence of the lack of privacy is brought to our attention.
