ScreenAgers (Screen Addicts Might not like)

Nnọọ (Hello in Igbo)

Been a long time since I actually posted something huh?. Anyways I’d like to talk about this documentary called screenagers, it’s about how the new generation (my generation basically) is going to be living in a digital era and whether or not it is affecting our lives. It interviewed many teens, preteens and psychiatrists. One of the preteens is including the main host’s daughter and their teen son. They saw how much technology was affecting all the teens and preteens life and saw this as a problem. They examined how teens and preteens who spend lots of time on screen do worse in school, have worse socialising skills and tend to be more negative towards others. Then some scientist took a test on mice and made them watch some videos and compared them to mice who didn’t watch any videos. Apparently, mice who did watch videos had fewer brain cells than mice who didn’t watch videos, and the effect was permanent. So in order to solve the problems with the screen addicts parents decided to creatively deal with this. Such as having them occupy the child with something else and making a contract of what they can and cannot do with their iPhone. After watching this video I decided to reflect on my self a bit. I don’t think I spend my time on the screen a lot but I do now realise that technology can have a bigger effect on us than we originally thought and decided to be more careful of how I use technology.

THE 3RD LAW!!! (Rated Really Boring for Those Who Those Who Don’t Like Science)

مرحبا  marhabban

(Hey there in Arabic)

First of all I would like to point out that THE 3RD LAW is actually Newton’s third law of motion and that you will now be reading about science! Be warned that if you are not a fan of science then you will certainly be bored reading this.

Okay so this week my class inquired into Newton’s third law of motion.For every reaction there is a equal and opposite reaction.Now when the class was done inquiring into Newton’s third law of motion it led to some questions.Now don’t get mad at me but I don’t remember all the questions but I remembered one of them. If we raise the stand higher will the reaction force be greater.Now I remember that one because I was one of those people who inquired into that question.The reason I say I was one of them was because others participated in different questions. Now I had to work in a group of 4.My teammates were Ben,Zara and Elizabeth. Ben and Zara were the data collectors , Elizabeth was the one who set up the area and I was in charge of measuring the reaction force.Now as usual we always had to come up with a hypothesis.You can look at my hypothesis below,and trust me the data below is reliable because we tried it like 5 times!on the piece of writing below you will be able to see  sketch note.That will explain the science behind it.I am not going to write here because I already drew it out for you! Also you will have to see the conclusion of our experiment below because I am just too lazy to write it for you,also this blog post is getting a bit too long.

White Hat:I learned that every reaction has an equal and opposite reaction.
