This is a question that came up on MXit. It raises some interesting questions but also opens up the possibilities for further discussions.
Question : do river flow in sunset or thy turn around nd flow wer the sun rise
My posted answer: I would like you to find a river nearby and do an experiment to see if this is true. When you find a river mark the spot and see which way it is flowing at sunrise, midday, sunset and if possible just before you go to sleep. Science is about finding out facts using reliable techniques so that other scientists can do the same experiment and come up with the same results. Please let me know what the answer is as I am very intrigued with this.
The first Theme Day for Port Elizabeth was held at St George’s College. The Mars One Project was captivating enough to keep 33 Grade 9 learners captivated for over 5 hours. After introducing the theme the Grade was broken up into teams and given access to the web site where they found a range of tasks with varying degrees of difficulty. The work had to be subdivided within the team to ensure that all the tasks were completed on time.
This was their first encounter of a process that involves progressive technologies and project based learning with a difference. Key highlights from this Theme Day included:-
