Wednesday’s Thought of the Day

“And so with the sunshine and the great bursts of leaves growing on the trees, just as things grow in fast movies, I had that familiar conviction that life was beginning over again with the summer.”

~ F. Scott Fitzgerald

An Out-of-this-World Project

Today Darren & Kiran, in 2JT, did a presentation to their class about some of the stuff that they have been investigating with Mr. Weber over the last few months.  IT WAS AMAZING!
Some of the things that they spoke about were:

  • definitions of scientific words and phrases that the boys thought were relevant & important, including the Big Bang
  • descriptions of jobs such as astronomer, astronaut, and physicist
  • a timeline of some of the most important events from the Big Bang until the present (and beyond)
  • the Hubble Space Telescope and the Webb Space Telescope
  • some seriously puzzling questions that they’ve been thinking about.  (Examples: Is there an end/edge to the Universe?  If so, what is on the other side of that edge?  What happened before the Big Bang?)

Check out the Prezi presentation that they put together below.  If you have any other questions, be sure to track down Darren or Kiran, or go visit them in 2JT!
