So far every thing is going good. I’m starting my next project. It is a project to use the magnetic force to make a motor. First you need a battery copper wire and little magnets. first you bend the wire into a unenclosed circle. Then you stack the magnets on top of each other. then place the battery in the copper wire, about 4-6 magnets and place the battery and wire on top of the magnets and the wire will spin. ( tip: you must have the top of the battery touching the wire and the bottom part of the wire must be a millimeter away)
My passion project is going good so far my first experiment worked ( i will post pictures of that latter) and my chicken bone project is working pretty good. My Hypothesis is that the vinegar will take out the Calcium in the bone and make it rubbery. the bone is starting to look weird. If any of you want to try this at home all u need is a raw chicken bone and vinegar. first put the chicken bone in the bowl then poor in the vinegar and let it set for one or two weeks.
today is the fith meeting ( I misted the fourth ) we have changed a lot. today all we did was test and added. we got though all the steps but one. the book dominoes. the car always hits the bottom of the books and makes it fall the way we do not want it to fall. we have got about 40 fails now but were still trying. 🙂
We got a assignment on jan 28. It was rube Goldberg. Me and my group got together (2 people were sick ) we made a sketch and tested some stuff out. Then our second gathering ( every one was here ) we started our second sketch we fought quite a lot ( who knew that NERF bullets hurt a lot) my friends mom said that if we finish we can get ice cream. We also started the first few steps. Our rube Goldberg looks awesome.
This is my Infographic
Last 1 week and a ½ we planted plant. I have no idea what they are! We had one controlled and one manipulated. For our manipulated one we put sand instead of dirt. Other people messed with the water or light. One group even put sugar water. Our manipulated one grew 1 inch and a ½ !
On the first day it started to sprout on. The second day I saw that it was the same. For the next 5 days it grew stems then it started to grow leaves it was very very fun!
On day three we had a huge success. We put three magnets on each side right left and center.
Here are some pictures:
We made it float 3/4 of a inch off the ground. It carried 46 marbles!!!!!! It was so much marbles that we had to get a bigger cup! It was sad when we had to take apart our maglev. But I can’t wait for the next unit. I can’t wait!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Yesterday my group had a huge successes we made the train float a inch off the ground!!!!! My idea made it float a little but we found another way. first we got strip magnets and disc magnets it made it flout a little then we tried adding a extra strip. But that did not work. we even tried putting to long magnets on the car but that did not work. It was a great second day!
This week we are learning about maglev train and transportation. Yesterday we started make our maglev train. our first plan failed because the magnets kept on flipping over. Today we are trying my idea. I am pretty sure that my idea is going to work. my idea is putting two strip magnet on the train and three strip on the track and six disk magnet. and If my idea fails then we are going to try the other persons idea. We can have four different magnets. one of the magnets is a strip magnet. a strip magnet is a bendable magnet that you can brake. another magnet is a ring magnet. the ring magnet is like a magnet donut. the final magnet is the bar magnet.
