Determining the truth behind the Myth.

What do you want to get out of this project?

I want to be able to understand the truth behind myths. I also want to see if different mythologies reference the same myths but with different perspectives.

where did the skills go? we are taking skills out of the idea generation process, in an attempt to make projects more career-focused. If you want to get leveled-up for a project, share it with the appropriate guide or faculty member for feedback upon completion.

Reflect on this project cycle by answering the questions below.

The act of reflecting allows us to pull out the big takeaways that we'd like to remember from this project to make recalling them easier.

What are some of the most interesting discoveries you've made working on this project?

I discovered many interesting things ranging from sea serpent witness accounts and photographs/videos which really add a layer a mystery behind it. I also concluded that I really enjoy solving mysteries/puzzles/problems and I want to pursue a career down a path which I get a lot of exposure to those.

What extra resources would be helpful for this project in the future?

I feel the way I approached this project was fairly sound. I started with the mythologies behind the serpents then found other stories relating to similar creatures. Then to wrap it up, I decided which real-life sea creatures could fit the bill and expressed my theories on the topic. In the future I may look at other sources such as YouTube.

šŸŒ¹ What did you enjoy most about this project? šŸ„€ What didn't go well in this project? šŸŒ± What will you do differently next time?

I enjoyed the suspense and mystery surrounding the project.
Slight bit of poor planning which led us to have to work extra on the days closest to the end of the cycle.
Write out a more detailed planner, as well as get my group more on the same page the whole time.
