Western Sydney University Engineering student, Valerie Jochico is one of four girls out of the 50 students who will be competing in Bridgestone’s World Solar Car Challenge early next month. Valerie, alongside her teammates will race against 30 other countries from Darwin to Adelaide across some of the world’s most challenging landscapes. This year the event will reach its 30th anniversary as it celebrates its relentless passion for a sustainable future.
Recently Pluto was declassified as a planet leaving only eight planets in Earth’s solar system. There were many mixed feelings about the declassification. Many people were happy because they thought pluto should have never been considered a planet in the first place. People thought that pluto was far to small and too far away to be a planet in the first place, over shadowed by the much larger nearer planets to it. Meanwhile other people were distraught at the thought that NASA could take Pluto’s title as a planet away that easily. Growing up with being taught about Pluto as a planet and learning so much about it many people were offended that the title of planet was striped from Pluto.
Educational programming includes activities ranging from Mad Science presentations, karaoke, opportunities for private academic tutoring, and more. Further augmenting the educational experience provided at The Heritage Learning Center, students will create art, do science experiments, and create their own snacks to eat. Truly, The Heritage Learning Center understands that education does not stop during summer recess, that learning and engaging with the world is always occurring, and the summer is a fantastic opportunity to get children excited about learning, academics, and their
On May 25, 1961, President John F. Kennedy set a national a national goal to complete a crewed lunar landing on the Moon and return them to Earth safely. He made a special joint session of Congress on May 25, 1961 and said, “I believe this nation should commit itself to achieving the goal, before this decade is out, of landing a man on the moon and returning him safely to Earth.” This soon became the primary objective of Apollo 11. On July 16, 1969, two brave men, by the names of Neil Armstrong (1930-2012) and “Buzz Aldrin” (1930-), traveled to a previously unexplored terrain. Apollo 11 was an extremely dangerous journey. During the trip to the moon, the United States encountered many hardships and complications. It took 42 failed attempts prior to the
No one ever said that space was not meant for us to explore, who is to say that the oceans were meant for us to cross into America? Since the beginning of time, man has been fascinated with the thought of the sun and stars. From the first step on the moon at 10:56pm on July 20, 1969 the sparks of curiosity of how far NASA can go have been wondered for many years.
It was predicted by Bill Kaysing that the likihood of sending a man to the moon and back were low because of the micro meters and radiation that may cause harm a human. Not even two years later, President J. F. Kennedy gave a speech reporting that he will designate the country with plenty of resources to land a person on the moon before the decade was out. Two years shy of a decade later, the Apollo 11 took off to the moon with three people aboard, who were Buzz Aldrin, Neil Armstrong, and Michael Collins. In July of 1969, these were the first people to ever land on the moon and walk on the moon. Many people have taken their own opinion about what actually happened. Persuasive evidence was discovered and the people have doubted that America
4 suns all lived and died but one survived with us living in it. Each one creating a world but each one dying out easily replaced by the next. This myth built Aztec mythology and all the people’s beliefs. In this myth each sun is a god and is controlled by the god and through trials and errors they go through four suns till they make the fifth sun that is there to stay. This shows like in Greek mythology that they went through many trial but after many errors they made the right thing or right people. many myths go through this same thing and they still complete what must be completed.
Moon Shadow is a 8 year old boy who lives in China with his mom and grandma.Once his grandma told him a story about his grandfather who had been lyched during a war.Then Moonshadow wanted to know about Golden Mountain but his mom and grandma did not want to tell him.

Kilmer Middle School offers a variety of different after-school activities. These activities involve a wide variety of topics, from sports to math to science. All of these after-school activities are enjoyable, but one stands out to me - Science Olympiad! Science Olympiad is enjoyable because of the knowledge participants learn, the competition that is involved, and the teamwork required.
Storms in space could have a devastating effect on our society. Solar storms are a result of solar flares and are electromagnetic in nature. They are capable of causing power outages and halting all types of communication, including; electronic pagers; radio and television broadcasts; credit card transactions; military communications; etc.
Students can review what they're learning in class with this interactive course [Earth Science for Kids|http://study.com/academy/course/earth-science-for-kids.html]. Within this course are lessons on geology, climate change, and weather systems along with short quizzes to test their knowledge of the material.
Solar energy is the most ancient kind of energy found on earth, for it is as old as the sun. "Solar" means from the sun. The earth is only one of the many planets which is bathed in the sun's overflowing energy. Every second the world receives 95.8 trillion watts of power…just think about that for a minute. Think about how much power the earth just received in the time it took you to read this sentence? It is well beyond the amount of power used in one day. It has the potential to satisfy all our energy needs forever without ever having to use the pollutive fossil fuels ever again. "The problem however, does not lie in the limited source, as do fossil fuels, but in harnessing
Abstract: The current energy situation with fossil fuels as the main source of the world’s energy has two main flaws: fossil fuels contribute to global warming via the greenhouse effect and they are limited in the quantity that remains. Solar power solves both of these problems and can be captured by utilizing photovoltaic cells. However, photovoltaic cells have their own drawbacks due to their high costs of installation and maintenance.
