Meeting the Scitech Team

Sasha has worked hard to write a good post about your Scitech visit.  I’m very impressed with your ability to work on-line on the blog posts. 🙂

Guess what?

On Friday 26th of October, Scitech came to visit Margaret River Primary School. Room 6 was lucky enough to have three sessions with Scitech while they were at the school.The first session was the show.  The show was all about WHAT MAKES SOUND?  We soon learnt that vibration makes sound. We also listened to some sounds that were a bit weird and different from everyday sounds. One of them was made with a straw.  It sounded amazing!

Now that we knew that vibration makes sound we were given items to make our own instruments. In this hands-on activity we were put into groups. Each group had to make at least 2 different sounds with each instrument that they had made. Everybody enjoyed it and we made some sounds that you don’t hear every day.  You can hear a few of the sounds they made here.

Jack and Charlie also explained how they made their instruments before making their sound.

Our final session in the space dome was an exciting experience. In the space dome we learnt interesting facts about all the planets and stars. The presenter showed us how the stars form shapes which is how the Aboriginal people see the Emu. She showed us how stars form shapes and told us the Zodiac names of the shapes in the sky and how far away the Sun is from  the Earth.

I think everybody learnt a lot and had fun in the space dome.
