Brotherly love!

Brotherly love!

On Friday everybody in St. Peter’s had a chance to win a golden ticket to the B.T. Young Scientist and Primary Science Fair. Me [Eduard] and my brother Lester won the golden ticket from twitter to go. We got to bring our whole family! It was a great day. We decided to write your a blog post to tell you all about it.

We went to the entrance and into the Minerva suite to get our wristbands. It was so great! We got a book about the history of the building and project. We went to the Discover Primary Science school section first and we saw lots of good things. The first thing we saw was a robot fixing a messed up Rubik’s Cube in only 10 minutes! Next we saw animal skulls. The smallest was a Snow Leopard and the biggest was the Zebra. After that I wandered off and I found a camera that lets me zoom into lots of things. I saw tube worms and barnacles on an Oyster. There were anenames, seaweed and crabs. I was able to zoom into my skin and clothes! My baby brother’s leather jacket looked like my skin but it was black and blue.

Following that we saw a robot that was able to be controlled by an Xbox 1 controller. My baby brother came second in a maze get out with a time of 8 minutes and 37 seconds. The robots were able to push buttons by pressing the A button on the controller to open hidden gates. We learned that 3 insects indicate fresh water and that leaches, rat tailed maggots and red worms indicates dirty water. Also the cowboys searched for gold by getting lots of sand into a pan and they started spinning the pan so the sand will go and the minerals will stay behind. After that we saw the Secondary School projects. They were incredible and must have taken hours to prepare for. We would love to take part some time.

After all that we were so tired and we decided to go home. We all had a great day! Thanks to everyone at BTYSE for such a great day out!
