What have you learned this year?

Third year in a row (see 2015’s and  2016’s lists) of reflecting on things you’ve learned this year, inspired by this list: “52 things I learned in 2017”.

Some of the things I thought were interesting (go to the article to find links to the original sources):

#4: Laser Snake is a robotic arm that is used to help decommission nuclear plants.

#30: Some people begging for money in China are using QR codes and smart phones to get it.

#34: People who watch regular TV see up to 160 hours of advertisements a year. That’s one good thing about Netflix.

#38: In just 5 months in 2016, more than 250 people died as a result of drivers playing Pokemon Go.

#41: Men who travel first class are more likely to weigh a lot, but the reverse is true for women.

#45: There are twelve people whose job it is to check and remove abusive comments and spam from Mark Zuckerberg’s Facebook page.

#51: A research company in Korea is working on furniture that moves itself, making it easier to clean your room. (see video below)


Students, try making your own list of things you learned this year. It’s a good way to review the year and get ready for end-of-semester tests and assessments.
