ASU Trip 2016

Anthony Khalifeh

For the community project I went on the trip to the Department of Human Evolution at ASU. There we spoke to students and faculty members about what they do in their daily lives and what they do in their department. We learned about their research and how innovations in other fields help them in theirs and how they have to work with other experts to get more accurate information and how that will help them in the future. I learned a lot about the process of why they became students in their respective fields and why they love what they do. We put skulls from ancestors/relatives of the Homo sapiens in order and used key factors to determine the order of them. Their job is important because it allows us to learn about our past and how we got to the point we are today.

Picking up Trash

Community Outreach

We went to the Rio Salado Audubon Center, a place in the middle of down town Phoenix that focuses in giving unban folks the ability to conserve the environment. This center is located in a wide area next to a road bridge that is heavily polluted, filled with a large variety of trash. We went there to clean a small portion located under the bridge. I joined the project to explore the down town section of phoenix because I haven’t been their much. Another reason I joined was to clean the environment because of its effects on animal life. This helped the community because it created a healthier and clean environment for the preserve center. An understanding of science allows us to understand how things work and behave, this is the reason why we are able to see how trash effects the environments. After cleaning the reserve I felt very good as I have helped the community.
