Hello everyone, we are glad to say that the Forum was a success! Everyone that has tried our tea has been asking for more so we are putting up the ingredients and where to find them on our website making it so that you can all make the tea yourselves at home. Now that the Forum is officially over this will sadly be our last blog post :(. We appreciate everyone who tried our tea and visited us at the Forum and commented on our blog giving us feedback. Thank you all so much for helping to make our project a success!
Hello everyone, we are pleased to tell you all that KNL Dream Drowser does in fact help people sleep better!! So far, our results have shown that Dream Drowser has had more of a positive effect on the people who tried our sleepy tea compared to the people who tried chamomile tea. We have also found that not only does the valerian help you sleep better but it also reduces stress! Now that we have finished collecting our data we are working on our presentation for the Forum. The Forum is an event hosted by Windward School on campus where all of the other groups, including ourselves, will be telling people about our projects and our plans to help noninfectious diseases. At our stand we will have flyers for people to take home that have our recipe on them. We would love for you all to come to this event and support us! For more information please contact us so that we can give you details on when the event is and how to find it, but if you can’t make it don’t worry…. We will also be posting our recipe online and we will let you know where to find all of the ingredients to make our tea on your own at home! Be sure to leave us comment and come back next week to see how our presentation goes. See you all next week!
Hello everyone! This week has been a crazy week for us! Instead of giving out our tea to patients at the Benjamin Center, we have started to give it out to some of the adults in our community (parents, family, teachers, etc.). We are planning to give out about 15 packets of our tea and around 15 packets of regular chamomile tea making a total of hopefully 30 people. The chamomile tea will act as a control so that we will be able to see if our tea works any better than any other sleepy tea that you could just buy at the market. We have instructed these 30 people to drink the tea for 2-3 nights and then take a survey to give us feedback on whether or not our tea helped them sleep better or not. We have also asked them to take some data on how the tea affected their sleep and to tell us if there were any side effects. This week we plan on finishing up our poster for the science fair and getting our feedback from all of the participants. Make sure to check in with us next Monday to hear about our results! See you next week!
If you have taken our tea please click here to fill out the survey, thank you!
Hello everyone, this week we made our first batch of sleepy tea! We have contacted the Benjamin (cancer support) Center and we are waiting to hear back from them to make sure that they will let us give our tea to their patients. We are hoping to drop off our tea on Wednesday and have the patients drink our tea for a week. Once the week is over, the patients will fill out a survey to give us feedback so we can see whether or not Dream Drowser helped them sleep better. Don’t forget to visit us next Monday for another update and feel free to leave us your thoughts and opinions on our CBL project to help brain cancer patients that suffer from insomnia. See you next week everyone!
Welcome to our blog! For our 7th grade CBL (Challenge Based Learning) project we have chosen malignant brain tumors. The assignment was to choose a non-infectious disease and make a difference with it. We plan to help children diagnosed with malignant brain tumors and go and play with them, read to them, and just talk to them so that they have a friend. This will hopefully help them get through the extremely tough experience of it all. Please help us by reading our weekly blog posts and giving us feedback. Thank you!
