For my chapter challenge I had techtastic and I wrote about Daniel’s CC, Nathan’s CC, Ryan’s CC and Rachel’s CC.
First I did Daniel who picked the card Construction 4 Person and WOW I was impressed! Let’s start things of with the fact that I didn’t even know half of the things he showed us. I wouldn’t have even thought that an atom could degrade in five seconds or that most H2O has isotopes for hydrogen and oxygen. He was great in explaining and the info was very interesting (although I did keep losing him). Overall he did a great job and I hope he amazes me again with one of his cool and informative chapter challenges. Daniel you did great, do the same next time only better!
Next I did Nathan who did a combo of card three Demonstrator Diva and card four Construction 4 person. He demonstrated Rutherford’s experiment with the gold foil and the alpha particles. He used a slingshot to fire BB pellets at aluminum foil that was gold in color. He put things inside the shoe box that the foil was taped to so it the BB pellets bounced back like some of the particles. Other times he would miss so it would seem as if the charge in the atoms making up the foil propelled the pellets back. I think he did a great job give him a round of applause!
After that I did Ryan’s CC, he also picked the card Construction 4 Person but instead of a demonstration or info on a poster board he made a model of an atom. It was made out of colored cardboard and wood. He made a ring that the electrons move on. He made a nucleus made out rotons and neutrons.He also labeled it so we would know which were electrons, protons, or neutrons. I thought it was a very cool model and it must have taken a long time to make. Keep up the good work Ryan! You did great!
Last I did Rachel, she picked the card “Doctor of Fun”. She mad eup a game similar to “Candy Land” but it was called “Atom Land”. She made up one question for each space on the board. If you get a question right you move up a space, if you get it wrong you move back a space, if you don’t know the answer you don’t move at all. I thought it was such a good game it should be put on the market for people to buy. Overall it was a great chapter challenge. Keep up the great work!
