For my first Apollo project I chose to do it on gambling and casinos. I choses this project because I wanted to know why people gamble and what affects is has on neighborhoods. Also I what to know what what color, fonts, etc. casinos use to capture the attention of people and get the then to play.
While I did my project I experience some tough times. Most of my troubles came form the research and editing. The main topic the I struggled with is "why people like gambling", this was has because it did not have a lot of information that I could find and the sources that I found has differing opinion to why people like gambling.
I started my English/History portion of the project, first by thinking of the things that I could research. Once I found my main points that I wanted to uses in my project I put them into a To Do List so I would not get off topic. When my research was done I moved one to my Art. For. my I found the most common slot machines, I choses the top nine and look up picture of the home screan and game play. After that I made a chart that has all the name of the slot machines and categories, and checked which one(s) that want inline with each column. The last thing I did was create my newsletter and my Power point.
Art: I looked at pictures and videos of the top rates casinos slot machines and see what they all had in common. In the photos below both have the same colors(Red and Gold) and when in game play the biggest and best number to get is in the brightest colors and in the largest font.
English: I made in Informational newsletter about gambling. In my newsletter I wrote about why people like gambling, pros and cons for having casinos in neighborhoods, where to get help if you have a gambling problem, hidden secrets about gambling and the states that make the most off of casinos and gambling.
