physics This one is about density. The materials you need are salt (you will need a lot of salt), water, bowls/glasses and eggs. Watch the video to find out the steps and the science behind it.
baking soda vs vinegar This one is a great chemical reaction. The materials you need are baking soda, a bowl/glass and vinegar. Watch the video to find out the steps. Baking soda is also known as sodium bicarbonate and when you add the vinegar it releases the gas called carbon dioxide and that creates the bubbling affect.
I chose to do science as my passion project because at the start of the project I only knew a few science experiments and I really like science. I did intend to do more but I did not like them that much. My favorite is the baking soda experiment.This is my reflection.
Passion Projects Reflection
Please answer all of the following questions
Describe your passion project. What was your learning in it? What were you trying to produce?
At the start of the project it was a talk and show the experiments.
How far did you get with your passion project? What would have helped you to get further?
It was about 97% finished because I forgot to do the science on an experiment so it was not finished.
What was the most challenging part of your passion project?
Choosing what experiments to do because there are thousands of experiments.
What was surprising about your passion project?
Definitely the results like the size of the vinegar experiment it was smaller than I expected
Did you follow your plan well? Why or why not?
No only the part about the science. I displayed it on two videos instead of a talk.I followed about 4% of the plan
Which learning muscles did you use the most while you were working on your passion project? How did you use each one? Noticing: I noticed my errors.
Which learning muscles did you find difficult to stretch during passion project time?
Collaboration muscle because I was the only person doing science.
Include a picture/embedded link to your passion project
If you were allowed to pick a new passion project, what would you choose and why?
A movie because I like to act a lot.
What was your favourite part of passion projects? Probably that there was not a very strict success criteria.
