Hello my name is Phoebe Joachim, welcome to my i2 page. I am currently a senior at SHC. While most of my time is spent on school, a constant accompaniment to my days is music. It’s one of my greater obsessions and I enjoy divulging into new genres and finding new songs that spark my interest.

Since I do not have the resources to engineer artificial spider silk myself, these web-shooters should hopefully be one step or window into a possible future.
My initial plan for this project was to design functional web-shooters, similar to the devices Spider-Man sports in the Marvel Universe (depending on the version). Read more

I have had to make some design changes, so the site isn’t looking as clean and organized as I had hoped. I hope I can find a solution soon or make more […] Read more
This year my i2 project is centered on web-shooters, created in the Spider-Man comics. I embarked on this project was not only to bend the borders between fiction and reality, but to present STEM topics in a manner that encourages young students to learn more about the sciences.Project details
