stairs on the Flood Plain
For my Eagle Service project I constructed a flight of stairs six steps long to promote the safety of all those taking the tours. The 19ft. hill that my project took place on was the most convenient route to ascend the hill to get a view of the pond over the ridge. Many little kids and their parents would climb the hill and come back down incautiously, often resulting in injury. The stairs would further provide easy access for the Tule Ponds staff that needs to do maintenance. The project took close to a week to plan out, another month to shop for a materials and a weekend to complete. All materials were paid for by Math and Science Nucleus.
There are so many people I’d like to thank for helping and supporting me in the carrying out of this project. So I’ll start off by thanking both my parents and Dr. Blueford. My Mom who was always there with a reminder and ready support, from getting me to and from the project to staring reproachfully at me for procrastinating. My Father, who went with me to check out my materials, bought the materials and gave me all the work support I needed throughout the whole project. Last but certainly not least, Dr. Blueford, who spent numerous hours patiently answering my questions, looking over my plan to see if I missed anything, and giving me the project in the first place. Yet my project would not have gone anywhere if I didn’t have the help of numerous scouts. So, starting from the top, I’d like to thank: Jonathan Eng, Jason Siu, Joshua Siu, Zach Wilson, Matt Wilson, David Keller, Matt Paglianti, and Samuel Lai. Aside from scouts numerous adults also helped so I’d like to further thank: Uncle Edward, Uncle Ryan, Dad, Mrs. Paglianti, and Mrs. Siu. For technical support such as camera providers and picture developing I’d like to thank my Uncle Chris.
