Tamaki Science Roadshow

Last week we went to Tamaki College for a science road show. I felt excited on what type of experiments they were going to show us. It seemed strange because I haven’t been to a science road show before.

We arrived at Tamaki College and entered the auditorium. I gazed across the room and saw loads of exhibits. Experiments waiting for us to have a fiddle with them. There were two presenters demonstrating to us what types of experiments they have. After all that was done we got to look around and try out some of the exhibits.

My favourite exhibit was about different smells because it smelt nice. The presenters were talking about temperature and the things needed for fire to burn.

Cell phones

One of the many useful technology gadgets that most people have are cellphones. There a many types of cellphone brands, for example there’s Nokia, Motorola, Hitachi, Sony Erickson, LG, Panasonic, Sharp, Toshiba and a whole lot more.

Phones have changed over the years since 1970. It has changed enormously through out the last fifteen years and is bigger, better, faster and stronger! It has made a huge change in our lives.

Because this technology has been used to keep in touch/contact with family, it is very valuable to some people. Phones can also be very dangerous because people are so addicted to it and drive while using them.

The kind of people that have cellphones are teenagers, business workers and adults. I had a cellphone, it was a Nokia phone. I mostly liked to use it to listen to songs and to talk with my mates!!! The cost of phones have increased largely over the years because of the new technology that they have.

Cellphones can be really incredible inventions, but can be dangerous sometimes. For example talking on the phone while driving, can cause severe damage because it distracts drivers from keeping their eyes on the road. Overall I think it has changed our country and world.
