Appendix H 507 Providence Walk Trce Canton, GA 30114 March 20th, 2017 Judges, Senior Capstone Career Project Cherokee High School 930 Marietta Hwy Canton, GA 30114 Dear Judges, Hello, my name is Nicole Tjim. Throughout my life, the ocean has always fascinated me as I spent most of my early school career wanting to spend my life studying the ocean. Recently, I have become more interested in engineering. With mechanical engineering, there are no limits. For my Senior Capstone Career Project (SCCP), I decided to build a model of the canoe. My research paper was centered around noise pollution in the ocean. Noise pollution is a widely unknown type of pollution that plagues the sea and its wildlife. By researching this topic, I learned how drastic the effects of noise pollution are. I also learned about the steps that are being taken to combat this issue. A main source of noise pollution is boat motors. To combat that, individuals could transition to transporting from place to place using a boat without a motor. Continuing with my interest in mechanical engineering, I thought it would be interesting to build a canoe by hand. My product is a model of a wood-strip built canoe. It would be fully functional if it was in the actual proportions. There were many obstacles I had to combat in making my product. One major obstacle was time management. My product was not originally going to be a model canoe. My first plan was to build a fully functional kayak. After many realizations, it has shifted into a model canoe. Going back to my lifelong interest in the ocean, it was only naturally to combine my newfound interest in physics through the SCCP. Through this process and this year, I have realized that my previous plans to become a mechanical engineer are not as concrete as I thought. I still have the desire to pursue a career in the STEM field. I am grateful for the opportunity to complete the SCCP. I have learned a lot about myself this school year that I would not have without this project. Thank you for your time. Sincerely, Nicole Tjim
