Passion Project Update - Week 2 Brian Cichocki

So for my passion project I came out of my comfort zone of sports and baseball, which I have exhausted for years, and dove headfirst into the vast, complex and intimidating world of Human Biology. And I realize that I must face down another obstacle laid before me in the form of long and intimidating words, like Tropomyosin and troponin, which I presume to be cells, molecules, etc. but I still need to find out what they mean. I have not found very much as of now and have not learned much, but right now I am just trtying to gather resources for my research, such as Khan Academy and articles on human biology. I have gotten a few sources I believe to be credible. And I have learned some stuff, such as that goosebumps, actually officially called goosepimples, are caused by what was an adaptation back before we evolved and were covered in hair like apes. I found it quite interesting to learn that and will be excited to find out more about all of the human biology.

  1. Wow, Brian! It's great to read how honestly you've written this post. I can tell that although the concepts may be complex, you will definitely be able to teach yourself. Let me know if you'd like to interview a high school Biology teacher.
