Science Roadshow

Yesterday which was the Thursday 9th June our Team 5 Senior block was invited to go to the Tamaki Science Roadshow. It also involved money but luckily it was cheap. It was only $7.00. Our Senior block were divided into groups or went by them selves with there class. Rooms 22 were the first class to go and then on went Room 20.

Room 21, 19 and 18 went together down at Tamaki College. When we arrived to Tamaki College we were asked to go into the Audi - Torium. When we sat down all we saw were heaps of science things. At first the Presenters introduced them selves. Laura, Shane and Lady D. They showed us and taught us a bit about Science and then showed us some science things such as different surfaces and some experiments.

I learnt that to make fire you would have to have Oxygen, Fuel and also heat. Looking around I saw a piano mat. I thought to myself " What has this got to do with Science but then but then the trick was that if you stood on a keynote it would make the actual or usual sound of a piano. It was fun.

After that Laura told us to go back to our seats. The Science Roadshow was nearly finished, but we still had one last show. She showed us a blury picture and asked what we could see. Just by using the things that were in the picture it looked like a skull, but then it was actually a girl looking at herself in the mirror.

Cell Phones

Surprisingly, if you don’t know cell phones have actually been around for a long time. Since the 1970’s cell phones have been used for all kinds of purposes such as texting, listening to music and also the internet. Back in the days cell phones were very large that it couldn’t fit in your pocket. They weren’t very popular until the 90’s. Cell phones have become a major habit for communicating to people and they are also very affordable now.

In recent years, cellphones have been very useful and there are also different types of brands such as Nokia, Vodafone, Samsung, LG, Motorola, Telecom, Blackberry and many more. Texting has been also popular because to get texts you have to Top Up. It only costs $10 to get Text 2000 and 5000 but for credit and texting its only $20.

To text there are buttons which you have to press. On each button there are letters which are in alphabetical order. There might be 3 to 4 letters. There are 6 buttons and a backspace button. The 1st button has symbols and the rest are letters. The 4th and the 6th button has 4 letters and the rest have 3. The backspace might have a c on the button or something else.

Credit is WOW, if have credit then you can go on the internet on Facebook or Google but not only that you can also download music and other things. Most people these days are spending more time on their cell phones on the internet then going out doors. This might also be a major habit. You can also buy free internet for a month for only $6.
