Scientists in School
by Jolie W.
On Tuesday, Rm.105 had Scientists in School. We learned about Forces and Magnetism. There were words on the board. The words were: Force, Gravity, Magnetic Force, Electro Static Force, Contact, Non-Contact, Balanced, Unbalanced, Attract, Repel, Push and Pull.
We were separated into five groups. The Scientist’s name was Jill. There was a measuring force group, and Paul was in charge of that group. We matched grip strength and we catapulted a pom-pom. There was a group that we did with Scientist Jill, we had to make a piece of wood go faster using marbles. We each had a turn riding on the wood.
Raguna was in charge of another group. We tried to see how many grams are needed to make a pumpkin basket touch the ground. At another group we wrote “Gravity treats everything the same”. We tried to make a bridge out of dominos and not touch the blue part of the paper, which represented water. In the last group we hammered a nail. We used a magnet to stick paperclips. There were so many paperclips.
It was a wonderful presentation!
