Science in our World

During the term we had a few amazing guest speakers (our lovely parents!) come and speak to us about science in their work place. In particular we looked at how certain inventions have changed or been introduced over time to help our world or make our lives easier.

Here is what we learnt:

 

 I learnt that they use to use sticks (from the garden) for walking sticks because they hadn’t invented real walking sticks yet – Hannah A

 

I didn’t know that they get gas from the ground – Hannah B

 

With the walking sticks there never use to be a rubber stopper on the bottom. Then someone invented the normal rubber stopper and then someone invented the Flexi-foot. The Flexi-foot helps because old people can stand on hills better – Raph

 

Sometimes you can trick the brain to believe something that is not true – Sam

 

The car engine has developed a lot from where it started. Cars had balloons to hold gas in them so they could work when there was not enough petrol – Keira

 

Oil comes out goopy and thick – Aly

 

When you get oil out from under the sea you can take different things out at different temperatures – Akuac

 

We learnt about optical illusions – Daisy

 

I learnt that the part of the brain for the eyes is at the back of the brain – Tom
