Nombulelo High Grahamstown FabKids 17-10-11
As Nombulelo learners we saw this day asthe day that is well educated,enjoyable.It was also fantastic and unforgetable.It was a good day with fab lab we enjoyed it because we did some inventions with trophies and it went well although we struggled at first. We started at 8 o,clock we continued until13:00 it was a one of a kind day and we went on until 14:00 as i said it was very enjoyable.
we learnerd that how it is important to choose careers in Science,Engineering and Technology.we also learnerd that if you do not get level 6 or 7 in science and maths,You will not qualify to choose careeers in Science,Engineering and Technology.We also learnerd that how to use computers, as we said that we drew trophies on computers.
Firstly we were told to stand up and form a circle ,then Mr Ron introduced himself to us and we did the same. Then we were asked to group ourselves in fours, in our group the manager was Aphendulwe Mbane, the design engineer was Nkosinathi Mahote,the construction engeneer was Athenkosi Lukwe and the media manager was Lusanda Mabona. We were told what was expected from each of us, and we were also given a FabKids hand book to guide us do the project correctly
Iqela ngalinye belikhetha isihloko eliza sebenza phantsi kwaso,kwelethu iqela besisenza indebe yebhola ekhatywayo namanye amaqela enze indebe ezahlukeneyo ezifana nendebe yomculo,itenentya nezinye. Okokuqala siye zazoba indebe leyo ephepheni senza nemilinganiselo yayo, emva koko sinikezele indebe leyo kwelinye iqela nalo lasinika elayo. siye sathatha indebe yelo qela sayizoba kwi-kompyutha
Today was truly a great day as we learnt more on the field of science and technology.
We gained a lot of exposure on how to use the 3D printer and we learnt what a engineering teams entails .We also learnt how to work as a team and how to utilise each team members talents and strong points .Today was a great experience as we got to design and engineer our own products as a result we got first hand experience in engineering .We gained a lot of knowledge on science and technology and we had a lot of fun while learning at the same time .I personally am very grateful for
this great learning experience and I am also grateful for getting exposure to such amazing technology this was truly a great experience for all of us .Thank you for the experience we all appreciate it
Firstly there was no hope that we would be able to do our trophy but as time goes on we did it .
This is the greatest unforgetable day for us as Nombulelo learners whereby we were visited by YESA .Today we were given a chance of being an engineer, we were motivated whereby we were told a short story of 1.4 million of learners who started school in 1998 and in 2010 they were doing matric but only 400 000 learners passed their matric .This story motivated us into working more hard by studying (pulling up our socks) and be like the 400 000 learners in the story who passed their matric .We were told that if you want to be a doctor or an engineer etc. you must get 80% and above because if you are a doctor and you get 50% no universities will want to take you as their student.
We were reminded about the steps of technology which are designing,making and evaluating. We also saw that what we were taught in technology lessons is also done by engineers.While we were designing the design engineer shown how to draw in a computer. We were told to design trophies of what we like and after we designed, we exchanged our trophy with other groups. Every one had something to do and it was fun we wish we can do it again.
Coming from our group Swartbooi Sphokazi,Magwala Anam,Mdaka Simphiwe and Deliwe Siyabulela we say study in order to achieve.
