Building structures

Purpose and hypothesis:

Today we built a structure and put it in natural phenomena. my natural phenomena was a flood so I put my structure in a bathtub.

My hypothesis was that it would fail and I was right. Sadly my structure did not survive.

Materials:

The tools that I used were some popsicle sticks, cardboard, straws, clay, and two plastic empty water bottles.

Before:

after

what happened: the cardboard fell off the water bottle

Innovation day project

For Innovation day Eliya and I made a model of our waterpark run by solar panels. For Innovation day we had to make a park run by either solar or wind energy. We chose solar energy because it looked cooler than wind energy. Here is a short Bill Nye video that helped us understand how solar energy worked. We had to research how solar panels work and how they take energy from the sun. Here is some research we did. Solar energy is powered by the sun. You trap the sun into a solar panel and we take the sunlight from the sun and turn it into electricity. We will put solar panels on top of the roof to generate the park.  Lots of parks have a bad environmental impact. But with solar panels, it makes almost no bad environmental impact. It is run by nature and powers the park in a good way. Solar energy can be used for almost anything that needs electricity.

Here is the cycle that solar energy needs to get to the source solar panel which travels through the inverter which travels through the switchboard which is basically like an outlet that will connect to our water park.

 

Solar energy is lowering our need for all fossil fuels. We use only one percent of the sun’s power. A battery only has only one watt of electricity and one solar panel has 180 watt of electricity which is much better. We would have to have 12 solar panels to generate one water slide for only six hours. so many things are run by solar power cars and trucks houses shops businesses and even planes. The sun is the most important thing about solar energy if there was no sun during the day then the solar panels wouldn’t work that is why we have chosen to build it in Ecuador because Ecuador has so much sun year-round we thought it would be the perfect place to make it.  We are going to use solar panels because they collect solar energy so well and will be on the rooftop of our ticket booth.

My matter project

 Hi, my name is lily. I chose plastic pollution for my matter project because it is the one that I knew the most about. What I needed to do: First char ( char is my friend) and I made this Imovie, then char and I made a speech, and finally, char and I made a poster.  

You might think there is nothing good about plastic pollution. Well, there is for example we can stop it together by using reusable stuff. You are eating plastic, drinking plastic, and even breathing plastic. 

If we don’t act now by 2050 there will be more plastic in the ocean than fish.

I’m very proud that there is a group of people that save the ocean which is ‘Ocean hero‘. I really enjoyed making this video with char :


I really hope everyone that is reading this will help the world by using reusable stuff and so much more.

 

science blog reflection

 

Hi and today I am going to teach you about the circulatory system. White blood cells fight off infections and cancer. plasma takes nutrients and hormones to the body.

 

What I did was I mostly practiced white blood cells, red blood cells, plasma, and platelets. I loved it so much. I learned that red blood cells fead oxygen to tissues and organs, platelets clothes blood and so much more.

I think science is going amazing so far because you can not just learn about want the teacher wants you to learn but you can also learn what you want to learn.

Today we made a modal lung. It was so fun making it! The materials that we used were straw, clay, a bottle, and two balloons.

Here are the instructions – click here

Now you can make a model lung!
