Safer internet day!

Today me and my partner Harguan and the rest of 5/6 and Victoria went on a presentation for safer internet day. The presentation was about staying private and safe online. It gave us a picture of what could happen if your social media isn’t private. The way they taught us about it, was by coming up with a scenario to give us an idea of what could happen.

It was about a made up television program, called LollyLabJr. In order to get into the program you had to make an audition tape to get in. After the girl made her audition tape, she started receiving hate for it. Then we started talking about how strangers could get hold of your private information and how you can report them at Kids Helpline. The program also let us answer questions and what we thought about situations.

Overall, I thought that the program was fun. and gave us a good idea of how to deal with tricky situations online. Something I thought they could improve on would be to make the situation more relatable. I thought that LollyLabJR is something I will never experience and to get the message across, I need to put myself in her shoes, but I still think that I understand what they are saying.

Mount Alexander College Science Reflection

On 8th of June 2016 we went to Mount Alexander College or M.A to see some demonstrations, learn a bit more about science, and learn and see the school. If you would like to see their website here is the link to their website: Mount Alexander Website

We went to three stations: Physical changes, Chemical changes, and we even did a experiment ourselves. Here is what happened on the day:

We first went to do our own experiments first. They showed us a demonstration on what happens when you add yeast, water, and sugar together, put a balloon on the top, and if adding more sugar effected how big the balloon grows.

With that one we learn that the more sugar you added the bigger the balloon grew.

After that we did an experiment. We tried to see what would make a berroca in water dissolve the quickest. Me and my partner Indigo added more water to the container, to give it more space to dissolve. Ours definitely did not take the quickest.

Next we went to the chemical change station. We did these experiments there: Genie in a bottle, Chameleon, and Elephant’s toothpaste. All of those we learnt were chemical changes. Then we did a quiz on chemical changes and other things relating to chemical changes.

Finally we went to the physical change station. There we saw a lot a dry ice and we played a game of bingo.

Overall I learnt a lot about science. I thought that the students did a really good job in presenting, and I really liked the school as well.
