St Joseph's, Waitara St Joseph's, Waitara Presentation Transcript

  • St Joseph’s, Waitara Our Science Trolley Presentation Hope you enjoy!
  • What does science mean to you?
    • “ To me science means that you look at all of the little things and that you do lots of experiments.”
    • “ Science means to me comparing different objects and using chemicals.”
    • “ It means discovering and understanding new things, and learning about things and experimenting.”
  • Initial response to the science trolly.
    • The children were asked to rate the trolley on a scale from 1 to 5. These are some of our responses.
    • “ 4, because it doesn’t look very interesting from the outside.”
    • “ 3, because I haven’t used the science trolly before.”
    • “ 5, because I think it will be really fun and cool because I haven’t done science before and it looks really interesting.”
    • “ 5, because I love trying new things that look fun.”
  • Before the children has even looked at the trolley they were asked, “$6,500 does that sound like a realistic price at this stage?”
    • “ Yes because it comes with heaps of equipment and a computer.”
    • “ I don’t think that this is a reasonable price but the chemicals would cost quite a bit.”
    • “ I think it should be $8000 because it has a lot of chemicals and expensive equipment in it.”
  • After we had a look at the trolley we did the questions again to see if our opinions had changed.
    • “ 5, my opinion has changed because I did not know how much equipment was in there.”
    • “ 4, my opinion has changed because it is more exciting when you get up close to it.”
    • Some people stayed with their initial thoughts about the science trolley.
  • We collected data from the tests we did this is what we got After we had a look at the science trolley our opinions changed because we had seen what was actually in the science trolley.
