Starlab reporting for duty.... LAUNCHING 5 4 3 2 1 ....... BLAST!!!
Straight after the bell, Louisa, Isabella and I went out to the court to meet Mrs Dysart and all the other people doing the 'Reach for the Stars'
seminar. Gloria Witheford was our teacher who taught us about the star constellations which is stars that link together to make special pictures! How exciting! We got to feel how a real meteorite feels like, make a Star Chart which we need to help us find star constellations and go into this Starlab AKA Mini Look-alike spaceship. We got to make a comet (the closest thing to a real comet
) with her. She showed us a trick with candles and some dry ice. The trick was she kept a bottle of oxygen which was made by dry ice. If she put the bottle close to the lighted candles the candles went out. At the end, we got to have a bead that changed colour in the sunlight. A few days later, Isabella lost her bead! I found another bead that was blue while Louisa
found out hers was blue. Then I lost mine too!
