Ican Program

Featured

iCan-Logo-New

I tried out for the Ican program at a high school. The Ican program is a program about computers and learning about programing and other cool stuff. I wanted to try out for this program because I really want to program and learn all of the functions of the computers. The Ican program looks hard and you need a lot of concentration for this program. And what is going to be even better is that I have some of my friends the program with me.

Science Fair Narrowing Down

I started out with six experiments then I narrowed the experiments that I less wanted to do and the last experiment that lasted was Potatoes Make Energy”. I chose that experiment because I’ve always wondered why potatoes make electricity and why does it make energy. This narrowing down was a hard choice to do but there was some experiments to expensive and a bit less attractive.

These were my narrowing down choices:

1 Which battery Last The Longest?

2 Heat Does Energy

3 Potatoes Make Energy

4 Oil Slick Continue reading

A Tough Sport For Girls

Not long ago I read a post on Dogo News and it said that “Girls can Play Baseball Too!” This news attracted my attention because when I saw the words Baseball and Girls I suddenly knew that it wasn’t usual. This news is about girls getting acheivments like being the first female pitching and things like that. This news isn’t usual in the sense of because usually they show boys in baseball but in this news they show girls instead of boys. Something in the Dogo News made me a bit angry, some of the people think the girls are to delicate and don’t really want to let them in a baseball club.

What have me a little boost was that one day Jackie Mitchell showed up for women and played a baseball match at only the age of 17! What I learned from that news is the fact that before Jackie Mitchell was their, the men thought that baseball was for tough men and the girls were to delicate to play. But one day Jackie Mitchell was brave enough and told the men that she wanted to play baseball too. And Jackie Mitchell played a match with another team. But it doesn’t mean that there will be a baseball league for girls.
