What Are the Affects of a Huge Meteor Hitting the Pacific Ocean?
This project will explore the possibility of a huge meteor colliding
with the earth in the Pacific Ocean and the effects of the collision upon
civilization. We believe that if a huge meteor were to hit the earth in
the Pacific Ocean, a tsunami would be produced that would wipe out civilization
as we know it. We will design a computer program that will simulate this
collision and predict the effects of a meteor hitting the ocean.
In our project, we first established the meeting dates and times.
The meetings are held on Sundays at three o'clock. We recorded the minutes
of each meeting.
The next step in our project was developing a list of research
topics. From this list, we determined team member responsibilites and
assigned research areas.
We also developed a combined schedule
from the SCC and the ISEF deadlines. We check this list every week to make
sure there are no deadlines due. This was done so none of the team would
be caught off guard.
