Science project

We did a lab for science which involved mixing the following ingredient  slowly, medium speed and quickly. The ingriendients we used were: powdered milk, cocoa powder and food coloring all of them where mixed with water and stirred.

The chart below shows roughly what the bubbles in the middle of the substances looked like after mixing.



The video below shows us conducting the experiment

Mutation Story

I am a mutated gene that can be associated with RAB3GAP. I am a. Mutated gene that usually effects people that are in the same family. I am Micro Syndrome also known as OMIM. Micros syndrome is a negative mutation. The person that has micro syndrome may have learning disabilities and also may have development issues. Development issues is when somebody doesn’t develop properly for example, if they are very short they have a development issue that makes them not grow as much as a normal person, or brain cells don’t develop as good so they aren’t as smart. People born with micro syndrome appear normal but as the person with micro syndrome grows it gets more and more noticeable. There is no treatment to cure this mutation but people can help you learn better in school by giving private lessons. The way micro syndrome may effect somebody’s life is they will have a hard time learning in school which will lead to not very good grades and not very good grades means you will have a hard time getting a job to support yourself. Another way micro syndrome effects somebody’s life is they will look different as they get older so people with it might have a hard time making friends and having friends is one of the most important things in life.


Part II.)

The questions I asked to do my research were: what are the effects of micro syndrome, what causes micro syndrome, and some facts about micro syndrome.

Some familiar digital tools I used to research my mutations were: Google, Wikipedia and an unfamiliar tool I used was a looking in the textbook briefly.

To verify all my information I looked for the same information on multiple sites so I knew it was a reliable source of info.

some challenges I came upon during this project were: some of the info was a little hard to find such as finding out how the mutation happens, another challenge I came across was when I lost my criteria sheet so I had to look for another one.

matter matters by Sean H and Owen W

The concept of matter is hard to understand because matter is everything in the universe with mass and volume which is pretty much everything that was ever to exist to that’s a lot of things to understand.


An engaging way to educate people about matter is to show people physical matter and talk about the properties because most people learn better from interacting with what they are learning about.

Design and Deliver

A good learning technique for educating people on matter is to teach people about elements in the first place because elements are what build up different types of matter. If you where to mix pure sodium and water it explodes so some types of matter are highly reactive, some are not as reactive and some types of matter are not reactive at all. Every kind of matter has unique properties. A good way to test reactiveness in certain types of matter is to conduct a series of experiments mixing different elements.


In the process of completing this challenge to teach about matter we said how you can test reactiveness in different types of matter which is relevant because most types of mater have different levels of reactiveness. We also said how it is easier to teach about matter with showing a physical piece of matter because some people learn better that way. We showed how you can test reactiveness of matter well. We could have done better by adding a video of us conducting a few experiments of mixing different types of matter.

Coke, Pepsi, Diet Coke + bleach = ??? (Science experiment)

In this experiment we mixed Diet Coke, Pepsi and regular Coke with bleach. The purpose of the experiment was to see what would happen when we mixed all of the substances one at a time. Some safety rules we followed was that we wouldn’t mix the bleach with out pop very fast to reduce the risk of getting bleach on out skins or on the floor or desk. We mixed about 200 ml of the beverages with bleach separately and when we mixed them all of our drinks tuned into a clear water like substance with good a faint shade of yellow. We noticed that the Diet Coke mixed with bleach made the clearest most water like substance rather than the regular Coke and Diet Coke. We think it is clearer because it has less sugar in it. In conclusion if if you mix bleach with mostly any kind of pop it will most likely turn into a substance that almost looks like water. It is also most definitely not for drinking
