Chalks Out Of
An Investigatory Report
Dimple O. Albano
The study on the production of chalk out of sea shells was designed to produce quality dustless and long lasting chalk to compare with the standard existing commercialized chalks if there are any, which was sold in the market. The chalk out of sea shells is for local or non-local used for schools or any educational aspects or even at home which can be formed into different sizes and colors according to your will. We, the researchers, used the sea shells to recycle and transformed it into a useful product that will be used in our developing community. The production of this artifact that has been created by us strictly followed the procedures. First, collect sea shells from the sea shore. Then, boil it until it opens and being crushed into powder and becomes ready to be processed and made to different figures. Thus, the production of the product was accomplished and tested on its qualityand strength. Data on the successful product were tested and was finished accurately. Results showed that the said finished product, made from sea shells, is comparable in terms of appearance and quality.
More people used to collect seashells for fun and for past time. They made decorations, jewelries and even accessories for a doll out of it. But don’t you know that aside from those things, seashell can also made into a much useful thing. We are aware that education is the most powerful key for us to succeed. And to support this, we need some facilities and materials for us to make it easier and clearer. Of course, we know that we already have some modernized equipments, but still, for those hopeless countries and people who also want to be sent in school, even a worst facility matters. We already have whiteboards that just need markers and projectors as the most modernized. But still, the origin of those is just a simple blackboard and a piece of chalk. So, we, the researchers, made some trials and errors from different raw materials to be made into a more durable chalk. Until to that moment that we have agreed and succeeding one of our trials, to make a chalk out of seashells.
Statement of the Problem
The price of almost all commercialized or local products continuously increasing. And this chalk out of seashells is a big aspect to be considered in schooling. Some of the schools don’t have enough support from government and this thing brings difficulties for us students. Significance of the Study
This study opens another way for us people to be able to save and make chalks that is much durable with long-lasting use that will take part in our study. The study was conducted as a remedy for the common problem of spending much in. And it also helps us to gain money when you make this as your business affair. We can also make some raw materials that we thought to be useless, transformed into a much useful and improved thing.
Scope and Limitation
This study is focused on designing and producing alternative chalks. It also deals with the assessment of its actual advantages as compared to some commercialized one. The qualities and quantities data obtained in the testing of the product against the control were limited to 3 tests only. RELATED LITERATURE
