In week 2, there was a weeklong science rotation activity, where there were different activities to go to from Monday to Thursday. My first activity was called “What’s the Matter with Matter?” where we got to research about Matter on the web. I learned a lot about different states of matter, especially Plasma.
The next activity was sun printing. In this activity, we got to do a type of blueprinting: Sun printing. First, when you open the package, you must work fast, because when it is exposed to sunlight, it immediately starts developing. You have to put what you want to be printing by putting it on the blue piece of paper. Next, you have to leave it somewhere sunny and when the paper gets lighter, put it in water so it stops developing. This was super cool for me because it was the first time I did it.
My final one was a science experiment where we made foam in a test tube with baking soda, or sodium bicarbonate(NaHCO3), citric acid (C6H8O7) and detergent. This is the order we did it in with diagrams. The more baking soda you put in, the bigger the reaction and the bigger the reaction, the more foam comes out. At 3 level spoons, the cylinder overflowed! The foam smelled like soap. This experiment was very cool for me and I enjoyed it.
Overall, I think the whole rotations where all interesting and I was really hooked every second.
