Space Exploration

NASA stands for:
National Aeronautics and Space Administration

TechEdSat5 ISS deployment
Two engineers packing the brake into the 3U.The exo-brake will be deployed from the International space station through a small spacecraft. An exo-brake is a tension-based, flexible braking device that deploys from the rear of the satellite. It has a cross parachute. Why they deploy it from the rear of the satellite? They deploy it from the rear of the satellite because the cross-like parachute drags in space and so it will give them time to scan around the space station and around the satellite itself.

A Brief History Of Space Exploration
In the 1930s to 1940s Nazi Germany saw the possibility of using long-distance rockets as weapon. In 1961 Alan Shepard became the first American to fly into space.

Literacy / Numeracy

For this week we started learning about statistics. Although some of us knew about it already, most of us forgot. This presentation was really good in our session because we learnt a bit more than we already knew. We got create bar graphs and pie graphs using data from a question. 

Exciting Numeracy

Walt: Interpret information from a graph
This week we have been learning more about statistics and creating different graphs. The graph that we had to make was a stem and leaf graph. Stem is the tens column and the leaf is the ones column.

Heat On The Move

This is our group diagram that we created about the Heat Transfer Process. We found these facts on the text that we read called Warming up and Cooling Down. My partner Mitchell and I created this diagram. Please feel welcome to leave a comment if you like.

Staying Warm, Keeping Cool

This presentation was our task for this week. We had to write about the differences of how human, huskies and seals keep warm. For the last few slides we had to find a partner from our group to work with. Check out our diagram that my partner and I created.

Multiplication Challenge

Today in numeracy class we started off with a warm up which was a maths grid. This activity helps us to get faster at answering multiplication questions. My time for completing this was 6:22 minutes. Next time we do the maths grid I want to get a faster time then I did before.

Remembering Pass Knowledge

This week for numeracy our class is just revising on the things we learnt last term. Our teacher decided to test our memory and see how much we remember from term one. This term I am going to work on getting better at what I wasn't good at last term.

Creating Code

This presenttion is a reflection of a game that a group of people and I have created. It includes the rules of our game, our sprites/avatars and challenges. The two other people I created the game with was Moroni and Danielle. If you would like to have a go at our game here is a link. Have a go and enjoy!

Introducing Our Learning

Immersion Assembly, have you ever heard of that before? Every first day of a new term our school has an assembly where the teachers introduce our learning for each team. They were to perform a skit or make a movie all about our learning this term. The overall topic for this term that the whole school is focusing on is called “Now that’s Thinking”.

First up was team one, their learning is based on matariki and they will be making kites with different designs of their own creation so that they could fly them during the term. Team two and three are also doing the same and team four is looking at how the technology has changed now, since the olden days.   

I’m in team five, our teachers were the only team who did something besides from a movie. They performed a skit. Their skit was about fixing things around the school to make our learning better. It was really entertaining, so was all the other teams movies.

I am very looking forward to learning new things this term. Some of my learning goals for this new term is to improve more in my writing and to be more confident in presenting presentations in front of an audience.
