On Wednesday, April 27th, 2022, the whole 6th grade went on a very fascinating field trip to the planetarium. There, we went to various places and learned about science from mosquitos to fungi, to dangerous diseases.
Although there were many sights to see, there were two specific parts of the show that were really cool. One part featured a really eye-catching experiment. The experiment was about how different types of materials interact with electricity. For the experiment, the scientist used a machine that generated electricity. When it generates electricity the contraption would shoot the material up. There is a picture above showing one material being shot. Depending on the material, the height the material could reach would vary. Some materials even reached the roof. In the other part of the show, a scientist taught us about liquid nitrogen. The scientist tested the liquid nitrogen on many materials. My favorite is a poor, poor, balloon named Bob. To the whole grade’s excitement, Bob ended up not popping and ended up being okay. Well semi-okay. Bob most likely had a very bad cold. I don’t have a picture of Bob, but I have a picture of the liquid nitrogen being poured, as you can see above. The best thing about the experiment was that I was in the front. I could get the best view. The scientists specifically told us to not touch anything even if it was near us. Every student in my section of the trip didn’t touch anything or get hurt. That’s a plus for me.
The last time I had a field trip was in fourth grade. I really enjoyed the field trip. I wish we could go again. It was also fun eating lunch with my friends at the planetarium. I enjoyed every second of the planetarium.
