Hi Rachel, Asma and N Naidoo
I’m really sorry that I did not see your ideas until now. Thank you for investigating helmets for me. Your ideas seem to fit with what other people have told me so I don’t think I will take a cotton wool helmet on my next expedition. Bubble wrap sounds interesting. How did you know that I like popping the bubbles? Good idea about checking what difference the numbers of layers make. I wonder if you have too many layers it would make the helmet too heavy to wear.
Rachel and Asma, you said you are using an egg to pretend to be my head so I am wondering why an egg box wouldn’t work as a crash helmet if they stop eggs breaking.
I still haven’t worked out why there are so many different kinds of helmets for doing different things like cycling and riding a motor bike. I wonder if anyone knows?
Here’s a message from a new friend Krisztina from Poland. She interviewed me at Science on Stage.
Dear Ricky and Brenda,
Thank you for your interview.
I attached the photo of the interview to this e-mail.
The interview we made，will be published in a local paper.
Thank you very much.
I’m home at last! Here are some of the photos from the conference. This is the fantastic school where the conference took place. There were lots of stairs! My little legs got very tired going up and down.
There were some very interesting people there doing all sorts of science. Here are some of them.
What do you think about this car? Wow!
I had a fantastic time.
Hi Everyone I am in Denmark in a place called Copenhagen. I’ve come here to tell lots of science teachers about my blog and how all of you have been helping me to solve my science problems. There’s 300 teachers here – wow! They are very impressed with all your good ideas.
Yesterday I had a masterclass where I had to stand in front of a whole group of teachers and tell them things and answer questions. There I was teaching teachers. How cool is that! I think there are some things that you know about that they didn’t!
I’ve got a display here too! Teachers come to the display and I have to show them the blog and the investigations that you have done.
I went to a workshop about learning science by dancing. Think I want to do some more of that. I’m going to make up some of my own dances about science ideas. If you have any good ideas let me know.
I’ll post some pictures soon.
Sorry I haven’t said hello for a while. Something strange keeps happening. Ever since I got back I keep hearing things about Antarctica – weird. I’m sure that I didn’t hear much about it before I knew I was going. Does that happen to you too. As soon as you know about something it keeps popping up all over the place.
Well, I was having my cornies on Sunday morning. There was a man called David on the radio and he was talking about worms.
I know I was thinking about going out on my bike so wasn’t concentrating very hard, but I’m sure he said that there aren’t any worms in Antarctica, but there are ginormous worms in Australia that measure over 2 metres long! Is he telling us two porky pies I wonder? OK I didn’t see any worms in Antarctica but they live underground so I wouldn’t, would I? And there is no way a worm could be two metres long. That’s longer than me!!
What do you think? Any ideas?
