Science Roadshow

Last week on Thursday the year 7 & 8 students at Pt England School, had to pay $7 to go to the science roadshow at Tamaki College. We all walked down class by class because we had different times to the roadshow because it is apart of our topic for the term. ( bigger, better, stronger and faster).

Before we left Ms Tito put us in to groups of 4 to 6 I was in a group of 4 others Vaha, Ilalio, Rose and Micheal. Vaha was the leader of the group. Ms T gave us a work sheet per each group and she gave some groups a camera to take videos or pictures, I was given a flip camera to get some videos of the exhibit that our was looking at but only Vaha and I did the work and all the rest of the group went and played on the hands on exhibits.

The exhibit the me and Vaha where looking at was Heat. It was good to learn about heat because it showed us what material out of Metal, Foam and sheep sheep Skin would contain the most heat in your house we had to feel the materials the metal one was cold the foam was a bit warmer but the sheep skin one was the warmest.

Before the show ended me and Vaha had aproxxmitly 10 minutes to go and look at the other exhibits we looked at sound. I played on the Theromen and the sound organ. Out of the two sounds instruments that I looked at my favourite one was the sound organ, to work it I had to put my hands in the gap and when it scened a movement it would play the tune and the light would come on.

Personally to me the Science Road show was a great experience, but it was a bit boring because my group left Vaha and I to do all the work so I did’nt get to see much of the roadshow. But with the little things I got to look at and learn about I rate the roadshow 8.5 out of 10.
