On Thursday, we conducted our final experiment for the unit, it is also one part of our summative assessment. It was an improved version of the previous “Parachute Experiment”. In this improved version, we tried to make sure it’s a fair test and with less human errors. Our variable was the style of the parachute, (double parachute, parachute , parachute with a hole and a normal one). Through this experiment our group discovered that the normal parachute was the best style of parachute. We also had to write our own conclusion. This is because we’d previously learned about writing a successful conclusion.
This is my fabric parachute experiment. It shows the complete process of a scientific experiment as well as the results of my experiment. The experiment was very successful, we had a fantastic time on experimenting. We found out light materials like paper and plastic bag is the best material for the parachute, the worst material for a parachute is 100% cotton.

Bellow is a link on voting for our Chinese White Dolphins, Ruby. This project was created by WWF because the would like to raise awareness on our Hong Kong Marine life. There are only 61 dolphins left in the HK area, they all live near the airport runways. However, Hong Kong government is planning to expand the runways, it is going to pollute and destroy their habitats! The government isn’t really protecting our sea creatures much, if the WWF gets 100,000 votes, the government will try to protect all the dolphins in Hong Kong area.

Once again, please vote for Ruby!!
