Why we always have so much fun in computer science?? Lori is the best!!
The bat is following me!!! See the picture for this amazing moment!!!
Enjoy the nice weather outside!! Enjoy the science and art expo!!!
A Day as Rock Enthusiasts
Saturday started with an introduction to the rock cycle and the three basic rock types: igneous, metamorphic, and sedimentary. We applied this knowledge when we went outside to categorize the rocks on campus. After our collection of rocky treasures, we created our own rock using crayons!
Saturday, March 9th
After learning that people behave like gas particles in parties, the Math & Physics group decided to test out this theory. Gas molecules naturally move in a randomized manner and the video we filmed reflected this attribute as the girls performed the Harlem Shake.
The girls first worked individually and later capitalized on the synergistic benefits of teamwork to engineer a boat out of foil wrap. The goal was to craft a boat that would be structurally intact while holding 200+ pennies and still retaining its positive buoyancy appeal. Driven by creativity, a few of the first boats failed to meet the preliminary expectation of holding 30 pennies. However, as the competition progressed, the girls applied their knowledge of geometry and density when building their vessels. Much trial and errors resulted in success!!
We had so much fun this Saturday!! The Engineering and Art Expo was set up on Stony Brook campus and we learned and saw so many interesting things. We learned about DNA and extracted DNA from banana cells. We also saw a demonstration from the robotics team which brought several of their amazing robots to the expo! We also had fun hoola-hooping, making silly putty and making music. Can’t wait to learn more exciting things next week!
Here is the worksheet. Place a candy at the intersection so that every “dot” is connected by at least one candy. Do you know how to solve it? What is the minimum number of candies needed?
Hmmm, it’s confusing!! but let’s work together!!!
I’m your mentor Claire and I’m sorry it took me so long to post pictures of the cool experiments we’ve been doing.
