Here is an update on how I’m going with my passion project.

Sam and I have made a sample of the T-shirt, and we are extremely happy of the outcome, also they gave us the sample’s for FREE (: . We have also got the intro and some of the main part of our Power Point and we will continue to add on to that.

The next step that we are aiming to achieve is getting an order sheet full so we can order T-shirt’s for people and start selling our product. We will also try and complete the power point an add photo’s into it.

I am pretty happy on the way we are going so hopefully we can keep up the good work.

Here is a photo of the sample.






So for my passion project I think I’m going to do it about fashion and about a business that I made with my cousin about clothing and t-shirts.

What I will try to present to the class/grade is a T-shirt from our business MTN (stands for More Than Nothing) that we will sell in the future. And the process I went through to create the T-shirt.

We will have to use designs that are original and that are made by use. We will go to the screen printer and talk to them how much the product will cost and we will try and get a sample of what it looks like. I will try and find ways to earn money to pay for the T-shirts and what I did to earn it. Hopefully with the T-shirt I will present with a PowerPoint talk.

I am really looking forward to making the T-shirt and what it will look like and what it will turn out to be.

P.S I think because I have always wanted to donate to charity but I have never had the money to. Every T-shirt we sell I will donate to a charity or a school that my grandma reads at that doesn’t have much stuff at all and the kids don’t have that much.

Birke Baehr

Birke Baehr is a kid who was 11 years old in 2010. He talks about how we should eat local and healthy. Birke used to want to be a NFL football player but now he would rather be a local food farmer. He told us that most meat we eat is made up of chemicals and all bad sorts of hormones and things like that. When he was telling us to eat local he told us would you rather pay a farmer for food or a hospital for being food poisoned.

One thing that stood out for me was that he told his little cousin don’t eat the sparkly cereal like frost flakes. And one day when Birke’s uncle asked his cousin what cereal oatmeal or frosty flakes he choose oatmeal becase of what Birke said. So we can change a heathy good diet one kid’s at a time.


WHAT I THINK BIRKE DID WELL: His voice was very confident so you knew what he was talking about and that he knew he had practiced lots before the TED talk. He added a bit of humour so when it got really serious he lightened up the mood a touch and gave the audience a little laugh. He was clear so the audience could get his message.

WHAT TECHNICAL SUPPRORT DID BIRKE USE: He used a lapel to make his voice louder so the audience good hear him better. He had a smart board so he could so pictures and images. And that’s about it actually so not to much support.

I think Birke’s message was we can change the world one by one that the message I got. There was one thing that I think he could improve on was his hands, They kept moving up and down a lot like I mean way too much that’s really the only Thing I could think of. So over all I think it was a pretty good speech.


Richard Turere Ted Talk

Richard Turere is a boy from Kenya. His dad had a Paddock of cows and at night lions use to come in and eat the cows so what they did is they killed the lions but Richard wasn’t to happy with this so he thought about how he could change this.

He came up with all different idea’s and tried them but non of them worked.  One night he was walking around with his flashlight and the lions didn’t come so he then knew the lions didn’t like moving light or flashing light so he made this invention were he would get energy from a solar panel and that would power to lights that flashed at night on the fence. And the lions never came.

His idea was talked about throughout his village people asked him to come over and build for them because the same thing was happening with them and he did help them and things were going really well for him. He got a scholarship to one of the best schools in Kenya so he was really happy about that.

What I think he did well while presenting.

He used a slideshow that showed images to the audience this helped the audience visualise what was happening at the time. He put In a little bit of comedy so after a really serious bit he would lighten up the mood. He had no script so the audience knew he had practiced and knew he knew what he was talking about. He used a mic so he was more clear and they could hear him a bit better. The last thing that I’m going to say is his eye contact was great and he got his message to the audience clearly.

I think his message was : You can always solve a problem without hurting anyone or anything. Like you can stop lions eating your cattle without hurting the lions or cattle.

What I think he did really well is he added some comedy in his act so it lighted up the mood some times, his eye contact was very good and the only time he wasn’t looking at us was when he looked at his dot points on his iPad and I’m going to finish up with his voice was very good so you knew he was confident and knew what he was saying.
