Home Network, Petroski

This is my home network. At my house, the internet connects to the modem router through a Fiber Cable. We have three laptops, three phones, two 3Ds's, and an Xbox connected through Wi-Fi. In this unit, I learned how networks work, such as how Wi-Fi comes into my house, how URLs are sent between websites, and so on. I would tell people that they should be grateful they even have internet and to learn how it works so if something goes wrong, they can fix it.

Home Network, Rogers

My internet service provider is Verizon. My ethernet is attached to a switch on my wall. My ethernet is attached to the modem router. My modem is attached to my Wifi block(verizon Fios). My wifi is connected to three I Phones, two I Pads, Two Kindles, and a Chrome Book and an Apple Computer. I learned a lot about my internet that I didn't know before I looked into it more. I learned how everything is connected and how it works even though there is usually no wire connecting to the devices. I learned more about how a fire wall works and how messages, e-mails, phone calls, etc go through the process of reaching one device to another. I would tell other people how complicated the process is in order for a single text message to go to one device to another.

Home Network, Becca Snyder

In this unit I learned a lot about my home network and how networks work. My network includes a motem that connects to a wifi router with an ethernet cable. Off of that router there is an internet music player connected by a cable and through wifi there are 4 phones, 4 laptops, 2 ipads, 2 tablets, and a wifi extender. There is also a switch connected to the router which extends internet to an xbox, a desktop computer, and another wifi router for my dads office with a separate firewall. The switch also connects to another wifi router which connects to a printer connected through wifi. I learned a lot about how different things can connect and not connect. I learned about how a motem and wifi come into play for providing internet and wifi to a house. I would tell people that you can connect devices to a router either by using the wifi connection or through an ethernet or fiber cable.

My Home Network, David

This is my home network. Since my ISP is Verizon, my internet goes through a fiber cable to my modem/router. Through Wi-fi my internet goes to five computers, three tablets, a printer, a smart phone, and a Wii. That is my home network. I learned that there were so many things that had to happen before that page you clicked on could be revealed to your sight. The OMG moment was when we watched that corny video on the internet process. I would tell people that there is so much behind the scenes action to what happens when someone serfs the internet. To really understand the internet, you have to understand all that behind the scenes action first.

Home Network, Berg

On my Local Area Network there are my family's devices conncected to the internet.  We have 4 phones, a TV, 2 tablets, a desktop computer, and 3 laptops all connected to the Wifi. I learned about the difference between Wifi and an ethernet cable, and how the internet is brought into my home. Something new that I hadn't realized before was that ISP stands for Internet Service Provider. I would tell other people to be aware that the costs are high, and that they should understand what goes into a Home Network before they try to create one.

Home Network, Cantor

At my house, the internet connects to a fiber cable which connects to a modem router. The modem router connects to a wireless printer, a Bluetooth Speaker, 4 computers, and 4 phones. In this unit, I learned a lot about home networks and how they work. I never knew how my internet worked and now I take internet less for granted. I would tell people that instead of taking the internet for granted, see what trouble your parents do to get it and also how it works.

ILP

I have an ILP set up at chosen 300, a local homeless shelter that runs coat drives and does dinner and holiday services often. I completed hours here in middle school for my community service and felt it would be a good community involvement to continue. I have yet to have the Head of the organization, a priest at a local church email SLA yet but I will get on that as soon as possible.

I have an Ilp

Ilp is going great. My Ilp is at my old school, Alliance for progress charter school and what I do there is just help the teachers with the kindergarten class during their gym class and when its time to go home. Im looking forward to working in that field someday and just for now seeing how things go. Nothing major has happened so far. I enjoy not listening to the teachers I can do what I want... kinda.

ILP

For My ILP I am working for a company that creates HFORD's (Handheld Fiber Optic Response Devices)for MRI scanners and researchers. I have part-timed with them over the summer, and they invited me back for my ILP. So far I have been there twice, for roughly 3 1/2 hours each time. I continued working with things I did over the summer and have also been able to use machinery that forms the products. It gives you a different point of view to put together a motherboard that will be used in a device later on. This will definitely be a great experience.

ILP

I am enjoying my ILP a great deal because it has allowed me to expand my knowledge on technology, whilst working with technology. Since the church has put me on Tech Support I have been able to have everything run smoothly. I am looking forward to learning even more about technology by learning how to operate the translators as well. The only thing that I find very important is how the church has started to rely on me greatly in terms of managing the technology.

WES MIDGETT ILP

for my ILP I am going to a program called The Hacktory, my first time there went extremely well. I am definitely looking forward to creating my own art-based science projects and making the myself with the help of my mentor Max. So far Max and I discussed what goes on at The Hacktory and all of the options that I have there. The Hacktory is a very chill environment and I'm super excited to start working with science and engineering tools to make art.

I have an ILP

​My ILP at the apple store has been good so far. I met the people that work their, went on a couple errand runs for the employes on lunch break, and seen what the creatives are currently working on. Even though it may not happen, I was looking forward to maybe working with the creatives on projects because then, my work could be apart of apple. The one thing that has stood out to me so far is the that the store gets so many customers. I think it is important that I stay focused during my ILP. I don't want to mess up anything.

Veterinarian ILP - MEOW!

kali cat2
At my ILP in the cat hospital I have worked on October 3rd, 7th, and the 10th. In total I had 16 hours. Everything went well, honestly. I was welcomed with open arms by Ms. Aimee Simpson (the medical director/vet), the other doctors and vet techs. They tell me exactly what they're doing during procedures, the certain symptoms of illnesses; I also learned how to put vaccinations into the syringes. I am looking forward to learning more medical conditions, learning techniques on medical procedures. I would like to know more medical conditions, and learn the names of different medical instruments. One of the things that I found exciting was observing a spaying. I didn't know fixing animals looked like that. I am proud that I have gotten in the hospital by myself. I believe it will be a fruitful experience for me and will be one of the many stepping stones until I meet my ultimate goal.

Since I have just started, I have to say that I'm learning about what my dad really does when he is working. I plan on getting the experience to be in the shoes as a electrical contractor.  Overall, I'm enjoying it so far!

Sopheary ILP Update/ 10/16

I will talk to Jeremy on Monday.
I went to the ILP meeting, spoke with Jeremy twice, and emailed him and my advisor, and reached out to someone at the Free Library.
The culinary arts program at the library is inconvenient for me. I have not heard back from those I emailed about new opportunities.

My ILP

My ILP is at Central Free Library which is right around the corner from school. I have met a lot of interestign people and helped with various activities. One event that I remember was help setting up Poetry Slam that was held there but was told that a poster that we worked for an hour on was not able tot be used. Luckily we found a loophole. What I think is important about this job is going around the library and making it a place where kids would want to hang out.

ILP

For my ILP, I go to Bridesburg boys and girls club. It is a day-care that I used to go to as a kid and now I am a volunteer. I pretty much watch kids, help them with homework, help out the actual counselors, and help clean up. Every week I go, I forget their names but by the end of the day I recognize everyone and they remember me. It's like making new friends every Wednesday. I'm looking forward to the end of the year to where I can see all of the younger kids I take care of get to grow and learn more because now they're in kindergarten. I think the fact that I actually know the kids and they know me is important so my time won't be bad and I won't have to make their time bad because they're kids and they just want to have fun.

Madison Haye: Don't have an ILP

Currently I do not have an ILP. I had planned a meeting with Jeremy, but we never got a chance to meet due to interruptions, so I just sent an email to him on what I wanted to do to make it easier. I didnt get to attened the meeting for the people who didnt have an ILP but I was told to send a email so I sent another one. Since then I have not gotten an ILP. I plan to look for some opportunites for an ILP and see what I find and report back to Jeremy. I think I should have searched hard in the beginning for one so I wouldnt be delayed so much

ILP Blog Post

For my ILP, I am volunteering at my previous school Kearny Elementary/Middle School located on 6th and Fairmount. So far I have went there two times and things have been going great. Its nice to see some of my old teachers and principle and help my previous school's community out the best way I can. I am looking forward to helping Kearny's basketball team and other athletics programs involving the students. Maybe an assistant coach spot, which I have hands on experience with by previously having this job with my basketball unit outside of school. One thing that stood out to me while volunteering for these 2 days, was how much my school has changed since I left. With most of the teachers leaving and Kearny having to replace them with new ones, a lot has changed, but I'm prepared to adapt all over again during my time there for ILP. I feel its important for me to come every Wednesday and have fun doing my time with the school I attended as a young boy to a young adult!

My ILP

This past Wednesday, 10/14, was my first day at my ILP and I really learned a lot in the short time that I was there. My ILP is at the VCA Cat Hospital of Philadelphia, working with my host Dr. Aimee Simpson. Since last week was my first time there, Dr. Simpson had a college student that was also interning give me tour around the hospital and I got to meet a lot of the people that worked there. I’m looking forward to going back and learning more about what they do there, like with the dentistry. Something that stands out to me is how the cats acted around me and in certain environments, like the boarding room and when they are getting ready for surgery. Besides that, everyone there is really nice and the cats that I’ve met so far are just as sweet. I can’t wait to go back and learn about what vets do so that I can become one later in life.

ILP

My internship is at the Achieving Reunification Center (ARC).  ARC is an agency that helps parents who have had their children removed from their home for various reasons by DHS, to get reunited.  They have a number of services that are aimed a helping parents to get reunified with their children.  In my Internship, I am part of the administrative team.  I help out by answering the phones, filing out paper work, and entering data into the ARC database.  My daily assignments will be given to me by Ms. Renea Lawrence, the Office Manager. So far, I am enjoying what I do and I feel very comfortable in my environment. I'm hoping to have a great time interning there and having experience in the business world in the months to come.
