1. Description of Our Team
Our team includes Olivia (13 years old) Nathan (14 years old) and Meagan (13 years old). We were assigned into this group to do a project about hunger. To divide the work up evenly, we first figured out what we had to do. Then we divided up the work, giving all three of us and even amount of work to do. Our adult coach, Mrs. Pesqueda helped us a lot by making sure we knew what we had to do, and when we had to get it done by. She helped us stay on track.
2. Summary of Our Project
The overall topic for our project is hunger. Our group's subtopic is the causes of hunger. We focused mainly on three causes of hunger. The three main causes of hunger are nature, war, and poverty trap. Climate change and natural disasters are huge causes of hunger. When looking at statistics, you can tell that places with the most hunger is where war is. Poverty trap is a huge problem involving hunger, because it is already a big problem itself, but is also a bug impact on hunger. But if we all work together we can end world hunger, and save millions of lives.
