Back to the Future
Back to the future is a BOLT project. The first thing we did was answer the question: Were people in the past stupid? And we had a big discussion about it. In my opinion the people who lived in the past were not stupid because they were doing the best that they could with the technology and knowledge that they had back then. After answering that question we had to come up with three scientific discoveries from the past, explain them and tell what was going on in the time that it was invented. Right now we are conducting our own science experiments; I am doing a social experiment. I am continuing and tweaking an experiment that I started my freshman year; I am testing if people vote on people based on how trustworthy they appear. I will be showing people two pictures of politicians that ran against each other for the governor of different states. They will vote on who looks more trustworthy and I will compare that to the actual results of the election.
