I look up, and see the bell staring at it like it was a goal to heaven. Suddenly I hear Mr. Jarman shout, ‘’ quick hit the bell, you only have 12 seconds left ‘’. I listen to Mr. Jarman’s inspiring words and rush to the top of the wall and hit the bell. I jump of and then Mr. Jarman says that I got beat by 0.3 seconds, I was so mad.

 

 

 

Two days later I come back to the climbing wall, I saw that my enemy Jessica was there to, I was so nervous when I saw her because, we stared at each other and we both knew that there would be an epic showdown today. But she became nervouse we voted that I would go first. I got ready and put my foot high up and put my hands at a good grip, ‘’ 3, 2, 1, beep ‘’ I speed up the wall and suddenly get stuck for 2 seconds at a very annoying place, then I was ashamed at my muscles for failing me. I get to the bell and I just knew that I didn’t beat her, because I was stuck for 2 seconds.

 

Mr. Jarman started laughing and Jessica looked nervous, I beat Jessica by two seconds, Jessica started screaming ‘’ noooo ‘’.  I was so happy that I felt like I was accepted by the rock-climbing gods, and Mr. Jarman said, ‘’ go on, write your name on that wall ‘’. The moment he said that I felt like I just accomplished the impossible. For the next few days if I felt sad, angry I would just think that I beat Jessica, yes, I did. I beat Jessica.  I would always pass by the PE office and see my name on the board and would feel like I am the god of the rock climbing. Sadly, in the next two weeks my record was beaten by 2 seconds I tried to redeem, myself but it didn’t work it was beat by Cooper, but he was too fast, so I could not catch up. But I still knew that I did good.

 

Grade 6 Science Cup Insulator Project

These are two photos of my cup insulator  Model :

 

 

 

 

We were trying to put a cover on the Insulator to keep the heat from going out of the Cup . So we should’ve put a cover on the cup Insulator .

 

 

The Process of Making the Model

We First designed a Paper Prototype [ that we threw in the trash can [sad] [sad] ] .

Then we made sure the paper would fit the size of Cup/Mug and then we started making the actual model .

Then we got the actual materials that we need , and started Measuring the height and width of the cup/ Mug .

When I started doing the actual model Me and Han saw that the ribbon was not going to keep the heat in , and is not very stable for the cup insulator . So we switched the material from ribbon to tin foil .

 

 

What I learnt from the data of the Test

 

I learnt that in ten minutes it went from 89.6 degrees Celsius to 71.9 degrees celsius and went down 17.7 degrees celsius . And compared to the average , I wouldn’t call it a successful project but it was still okay compared to the average .

 

This is the Data

Time.     Temp [ celsius ]

0               89.6

1.              89.6

2.              85.9

3.              83.0

4.              81.2

5.              79.5

6.              77.8

7.              76.2

8.              74.7

9.              73.4

10.           71.9

TOTAL LOSS :  17.7 Degrees Celsius

 

The scientific reasoning of this project is that when it hit 3 minutes that the heat started to drop heavily each minute . It dropped around 1.5 or 1.7 approximately each minute since 3 minutes but it stayed at 89.6 the first two minutes but then dropped an enormous 3 celsius . 3 celsius does not seem like a lot but in ten minutes , for the heat to drop 17.7 is a very big difference .

 

Q&A

 

What was the hardest thing about this project ?

The Hardest thing about this project was that we had to keep on making different models with different types of materials and seeing which materials where best at being a cup insulator and keeping heat inside the mug for as long as possible .

 

What are some limitations you and your partner had ?

There were two limitations I think almost everyone had , Number 1 is time . The thing about time is that we only had 3 lessons on it , and we only had one lesson on actually making the model . Number 2 is Material . We only had a limit to what we could use , for example we couldn’t use more than 3 types of materials . Me and Han used Tin foil, Wax paper , and this yellow type of paper that we don’t know the name of lol .

When you blog you create posts and posts are categorised according to your subject. Some categories have already been set up for you. If you need more categories you can add them as needed. It’s important that your posts have the following:

  • An engaging title – this should not include the name of the subject since this is referenced in the category.
  • Body – this is where you share your learning. This can include text, images, embedded videos from Dragons’ Tube or elsewhere. You should always consider how your post looks to your audience. Is it engaging? Do they want to keep reading?
  • Category – select one that has been set for you or add a new category. Posts can have more than one category e.g. Humanities and Myself as a Learner
