Science Roadshow 2013

This morning we were lucky to be able to go to the Science Roadshow.  Share your learning about what you found out / learned.  Were there any surprises??

I'm loving reading your thinking - remember to be really specific about what you loved and why and also what you learned.  Think about where else you could go for more information.  Who could you ask?

Here is a link you might like - Science Careers Activities.  This is from the online resources for the Science Roadshow.

    We found out that you can make plastic and glue from curd (which is made by mixing acid and milk).

    1. I'm thrilled to see that you are posting independently Patrick! (Your surface features will improve over time and I would much rather that you take the pressure off yourself and just enjoy posting). Proud of you!
      What was the fishing rod and rocket demonstrating - how would you explain the science behind it to us?
      Why are there differences in the pressure with the nail and balloon experiment?

    We learned about preasure. Preasure is about gravity, air, speed and force.

    Keanu's favourite exeperiment was the Light Bulb Efficiency.

    Logan's favourite experiment was Balancing Sticks.

    Timothy's favourite experiment was the Magnectic Pillars

    1. Great to read this summary boys and I loved that you were specific about your favourite experiments. Try to be more specific though and state why they were your favourites.

  6. We were stupendisly lucky to attend the sience roadshow, an entertaining show featuring pressure, acid and base. There were many experiments to test and evaluate. Our favourite part was making weights from anchor milk bottles to go on our frizbees :3.

    1. What's the difference between an acid and a base? Where could you find this information out? Who could you ask?
      How do the weights work on the Frizbees? What is their purpose?
