Mutation Story

I would research about the mutation first, then questions like Was a gene added or taken away to form this mutation? What effects does this mutation have on my body? How does this mutation affect my body or mind? Will this mutation effect my whole life? Are there ways to correct this mutation?

I would search up maybe YouTube videos about this mutation or find a book in the library about it if there was one, search on science websites, and ask a teacher what they know about it. I would start asking questions about it and reading about the disease first to give myself a better understanding of the mutation then research questions and put them into a project.

When verifying a site I would see if its a trusted site like a science site rather than Wikipedia cause anyone can change that information, if a teacher talked to me about it and told me their knowledge I would take notes of it then search up everything to make sure the information I’ve been given is true.

the process of this project wasn’t too good considering I didn’t even do this project so things I could do better would be finishing the project with a good mount of information but if I finished it I could have maybe added more information, asked more questions and put visuals into this project.

Science Edible DNA

In this activity we learned what DNA is, DNA  stands for DeoxyriboNucleic Acid. All living things have DNA in there systems. DNA looks like a twisted ladder, it is knows as the double helix. The two sides are the backbones and each step is a base. In this model.  We used marshmallows, licorice and toothpicks. The marshmallows represented bases, the licorice showed backbones and the toothpicks were the bond between the bases and the backbones. The green marshmallow showed guanine (G), the yellow is adenine (A), the pink is cytosine (C) and the orange is thymine (T). This lab improved our knowledge of DNA because it provided a visual image that we could also manipulate. Constructing the DNA model step by step helped us understand each part of the double helix and why everything has a specific order and how it’s all needed.

Expanding universe

The dots on the balloon represent the galaxies in the universe and the balloon the universe and how when the big bang happened it created matter and energy and everything. When we slowly blew air into the balloon in three stages each time the balloon got bigger it showed how the universe is expanding. Each dot represented a galaxy and each galaxy moved farther and farther away the more we blew into the balloon when the balloon was barely inflated the points C and D were at C(12cm) and D(15cm) from M when it was barely inflated the trend of movement was everything we inflated the balloon the each time the dots would move farther apart from each other. Some stretched farther than others. This lab was a great visual of how our universe is currently expanding. All the galaxy’s are slowly distancing themselves from each other. Knowing that If I blow up a balloon too much it will explode and relating it to the universe if it expanded to much it may die out or something, but balloons sometimes deflate so maybe it would just expand and reduce in size again

Science App Review

My app helps you understand what elements create new elements and teaches you by you experimenting and making stuff on your own cause I believe you start of with earth fire and water And with those elements you create more and more and eventually you can create live and objects with metals and it was fun to play when I was competing with my friends to get all the possible elements you can make

how does this relate to science?

your using elements to relate to science

how does this help you in science?

This app helps you find out what certain elements can make

How much does this app cost? 

This app is free!

what devices is this available on?

It’s available on both android and apple devices

what is the suggested age?

The app suggests when you play your 12+

What is the basics of the app?

So you start off with three elements fire,earth, and water. And you mix those elements to create more

How would you describe this app?

you explore with simple elements and create new elements by mixing the elements you have

is this app fun to play as you learn?

when I played this game I thought it was fun because me and my friends were competitive and were challenged into who got them all the quickest
