  1. I'm starting my extended essay and I want to do something about chemistry (but not biochem, since I don't take biology) or physics For chem, I came up with 2 possible topics: Determining acidity levels of different fruits (or same fruits produced in different places) Verifying “real fruit” statements on juices by analyzing both the juice and the fruit they’re claiming to use For physics, I came up with 3 topics: How does the injection of HHO in the mechanical engine improve its efficiency? Hydrostatic pressure in different heights from the ground Concentration vs refraction Are these doable? I'm in first year for both courses and will take HL next year, but I don't feel like I've learned much so far. I'm leaning more towards chem (more for a teacher-hunting purpose), but I'll have to do physics if those topics are undoable. Thank you
  2. I know someone has done their extended essay on internet security. I was also thinking about doing a compsci EE (but probably won't), one of the topics I came across was "Analyzing the efficiencies of different algorithms performing the same task". I hope that helps.
  3. I'm starting my computer science SL dossier soon and not sure what I want to school's computer science quality is super low so all we're taught is some java programming, we don't cover databases etc. I love compsci, and I do a lot of programming outside class. I can make animated games and programs. What should I do for my dossier? Someone give me some fun idea
  4. I don't take bio but I've heard bio HL is a lot of "work" (like memorizing stuff rather than understanding). Humanities HL is pretty much the same as SL. If you're aiming for "easier" schedule, take Lang/lit HL.
  5. God exists, as we can "know" it through faith, one of the "ways of knowledge". The TOK textbook I use at my school outlines "faith" as "knowing without proof". Faith extends material world and is a different form of WOK, which explains how it can be understood without "proofs" and "evidences" that we'd need for anything that happens predictably. Existence of God has never been falsified. A theory not falsified is considered valid. I believe God exists. There have been many times in my life where "impossible" things happened. If we rely 100% on what we know from our experiences and logics, how can we explain such "unexplainable" and "impossible" things? What about perfect coincidences that makes everything work out perfectly? There is obviously someone behind all this. God controls everything. Not everything will work the way we wanted. If God would listen to ALL OUR PRAYERS, He wouldn't be God. That way we'd be the god and He'd be like a genie. We can ask for whatever we want. But it's up to God whether He'll let it happen, just as it's up to our parents whether they want to buy us something we want etc. The main difference between God and a human parent, though, is the fact that God knows the future (in fact I believe he plans it too!) so he won't make any mistakes that a human parent would make. If God exists, why would He let all the war conflicts and other horrible things to happen? Well, light cannot be seen, appreciated, or even exist without darkness. I think God exists. This is what I think. You don't have to agree with me, but this is what I believe to be true.
