Phase 0: Getting Started: Topic Exploration and Selection
I've always been intrested in antiques because they tell a story. I have visited many antique stores on vacations but never knew how to tell the value of the antiques. I am also interested in history. America has a such a short history. China has a long history and its antiques tell an intresting story. I would like to learn from the experts on how to find, apraise, and sell these historical relics. I can see myself visiting a shop and speaking to the experts and if possible speak to Mr. Linden and learn from his expereince. This would be more than just sight seeing because doing is better than seeing. I am also interested in science and would be interestsed in finding out what materials are made out of. I think this topic would provide valuable information that would benefit me for my future.
Through my brainstorm work I have decided that I will choose antiques and collectibles. Through my harsh brainstorming I have discovered that PLant life and Case study were not the right choice for me. I think this becasuse theese projects are so solitary.
