On Friday, March 5, we had a Science class with Ms. DiPietro. On this day, we finally finished with genetics and debate we had on the previous day. This day, after genetics, we started the new science topic - astronomy.
Since we just started with this topic, Ms. DiPietro introduced us to astronomy. First we were discussing about what can we find in the sky. Our teacher showed us the pictures of satellites, and different stars. Then we were talking about ISS (International Space Station), where high school students were doing gravity experiments. Also, Ms. DiPietro told us that astronauts that are on on the other planets live in the space stations up to 6-7 months.
During the last 10 minutes of the class, Ms. D showed us the link(http://antwrp.gsfc.nasa.gov/apod/astropix.html) with the astronomy photos that are taken every day. Our teacher, Ms. DiPietro even showed us some cool pictures that are on this site. This is now a part of our homework. Ms. Dipietro guided us through the assignment; she gave us the handout about this assignment and explained us what should we do in it.
DON'T FORGET!!! APOD Worksheet is due Tuesday, March 9 and your work has to be e-mailed to Ms. DiPietro at 08:00 AM!!! Check Moodle site if you want to see directions for this assignment.
