Rave Reviews for National Science Fair ideas

first_img Amazing Science Ideas & Solutions at FortisTCI Science Fair TCI Police looking for candy & electricity thieves Providenciales, 04 Feb 2016 – The reviews were all the rave for the 15 schools which participated in the 7th Annual Ministry of Education Science Fair sponsored by FortisTCI. Holy Family Academy entered in both the high school and primary school divisions and is always an impressive candidate in the show; this year the high school collected aluminum cans, melted them down and created jewelry, accessories and art. Dr. Malcolm was wowed. “Okay we have so much waste on the side of the road, I believe we should start collecting our cans and take them to Holy Family Academy so that they canuse it and probably sell this grat product; I like what you did with the glitter.”Finally, at least in recent years, a robot. Maranatha Academy did not just present any old robot, theirs, called an Eco-droid would collect garbage and pointed to the future for keeping the TCI clean.“The basic concept is that it will be autonomously controlled by an ultrasonic sensor that senses whatever is in front of it and with the arm attached would be able to pick it up and carry it to the nearest garbage via a GPS system.”Beauty was top of mind for Clement Howell High and Community Christian Academy, both schools used a common plant to create the answer to acne, blemishes and younger, healthier skin. CHHS used Aloe. Dee to CHHS: Did you test this on any human being?“Yes we did, here are the results. This is a day after using the product as you can see, her skin tone got brighter…Dee to CHHS: Did you Photoshop that?“No! (laughter) You can see, some of the blemishes from acne are gone.”Community Christian used Neem. “The Neem soap we have here can do many things, it helps acne by tightening the skin and making the pores smaller and can stop blemishes. If you turn it into gel, you can rub it on your skin.”And as for best use of food… it had to be the primary schoolers of Oseta Jolly; forget about having to dispose of cups and plates after a party, you can now just eat them because of this group, they can be made of JELLO.“Because we used gelatin, gelatin does not have a flavor but after it is refrigerated and is in water it gets just hard and it helps things to stand up. We used the JELLO for it to have flavor, and for it to smell nice.”Spicy food is good, not just to the taste for so many… but now for the heart and it even cuts fat according to the International School.“If you eat more spicy food, you get a process called thermogenesis which makes your cells hotter and burns energy, then you can lose weight and you can reduce the chance of getting a heart attack or stroke.”A water quality test from HJ Robinson High, a recycling of sewer water by Precious Treasures, an experiment to test the potency of every day liquids by Enid Capron, how sea water can be used as energy by both Raymond Gardiner High and TCIPS and a propane and electricity free stove, just in time for hurricane season by Marjorie Basden High were among the contenders at the Science Fair which was held at the Gus Lightbourne Gym on Thursday; it is one of the finale highlights of Education Week in the country.

Save The Bays launches annual Youth Environmental Ambassador Program for 4th year

first_img Related Items:#MagneticNewsMedia, #Savethebays #MagneticNewsMedia#Savethebays Nearly 30 Haitians caught following illegal landing in Nassau, says Defence Force Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApp Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsAppFreeport, Grand Bahama, January 12, 2017  – For the fourth consecutive year, young people from Grand Bahama are trading their right to sleep late or hang with their friends for the privilege of traipsing through woods and wetlands as they are groomed to become good stewards of the environment.  Thirty junior high students have been selected to take part in Save The Bays Youth Environmental Ambassador Program.  The respected youth development initiative launched on January 7 and will run until May.“For the next five months participants will gain an awareness of their environment, learn the importance of taking care of it and how to keep it healthy for future generations,” said Rashema Ingraham, YEA organizer.   Discussions and field exercises will cover a myriad of topics including climate change, plastic pollution, coral reefs and mangroves.“What is interesting is that many of them really want to be outdoors,” said Ingraham. “That may be difficult to conceptualize with all the lures of electronics and mesmerizing television shows. We have to find ways to get our children to connect to the outdoors so that they grow to appreciate the beauty of the world around them.”According to Ingraham, the program’s success relies on the ability of facilitators to arouse passion about conservation and engaging participants to spread the message about its importance.   One of those facilitators, Bradley Rutherford, said he wished the program had been available when he was younger.  “It is a very enriching experience for facilitators and students,” said Rutherford.  “The opportunity is certainly one I wish was available when I was a youth.”For participant Justus Fox, the YEA experience was unparalleled.  “I participated in workshops with similar activities, but nothing as good as my first session experience with the YEA program,” said Fox, a student at Jack Hayward Junior High, one of six schools with students who qualified to attend.   The others Bishop Michael Eldon, Sunland Baptist Academy, Sister Mary Patricia Russell Junior High, Tabernacle Baptist Academy, Jack Hayward Junior High and Mary Star of the Sea.   Sessions are held bi-weekly on Saturdays at the YMCA.center_img TCI Premier blasts Opposition side for “slop” information, sets it straight in HOA Recommended for you Bahamas: 150 laid off by Resorts World Bimini, Save the Bays siding with workerslast_img read more

Kakolis road show garners stellar response in Barasat

first_imgKolkata: Kakoli Ghosh Dastidar, the outgoing Trinamool Congress MP from Barasat who is contesting the elections from the same seat for the third time, took out a massive road show in Barasat on Sunday morning in a bid to woo the voters.The road show, which was started from the Lokenath Temple on Barasat-Barrackpore Road, saw a huge surge of people as it went past various important places under her constituency. As the road show advanced, hundreds of Trinamool Congress supporters joined the rally, thereby contributing to the length of it. Also Read – Rs 13,000 crore investment to provide 2 lakh jobs: MamataMany youths and girls clad in colourful dresses were seen marching down the lanes and by-lanes of Barasat. A dance troupe also participated in the campaign. People congregated in large numbers on both sides of the road to catch a glimpse of Ghosh and the beautifully decorated tableaus that took part in the election rally. Ghosh was seen making her vote appeal to the people gathered on the road and also to those found standing on the balconies of their houses situated on the road. Ghosh waved her hands at the voters who readily reciprocated the gesture.

In response to media questions, Ghosh said that Trinamool Congress candidates nominated by her party Supremo and Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee will win in all the 42 Lok Sabha seats in the state. “Mamata Banerjee is a great source of inspiration for me. She is doing very hard work while moving from place to place, setting examples for all of us. We should also toil hard taking lessons from her. Bengal has seen an unprecedented surge in development works ever since Banerjee became the Chief Minister,” Ghosh said. “All the 42 TMC candidates who are in the fray having the blessings of Mamata Banerjee, will come out victorious. We are getting tremendous response from the people who are extending their support to carry out the development works in the state,” Ghosh maintained. Reacting sharply to the comment of Special Observer Ajay V Nayak, she said: “It was a dark age for Bengal when the Left Front government used to rule the state. After becoming the Chief Minister, Banerjee restored the rule of law. Law and order situation is properly maintained here now and hence women can safely move from one place to another, even during late night.”last_img read more

Jeff Bezos Enigmatic Aerospace Company Scores Knockout Contract

first_img 2 min read September 18, 2014 As celebrated entrepreneurs like Richard Branson and Elon Musk continue to make highly-publicized bids for space travel, Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos just scored a knockout contract of his own.Bezos, who founded the notoriously tight-lipped aerospace company Blue Origin in 2000, has announced a new partnership with the United Launch Alliance (ULA) — a joint venture between Lockheed Martin and Boeing that provides spacecraft to the U.S. government.As part of the four-year contract, Blue Origin will produce a special engine, the BE-4 — which has spent three years in development, according to CNET — for the ULA’s Alta and Delta rocket lines. The ULA then supplies these rockets to the U.S. Department of Defense and NASA.The partnership marks a brand new day for the ULA, which previously relied on Russian-made engines — a relationship that has become strained as the U.S. has heightened Russian sanctions given political unrest in Ukraine, according to CNET.Related: A Poor, Sleepy Border Town Just Won Billionaire Entrepreneur Elon Musk’s BusinessAnd Bezos’ contract is not the only move the U.S. space industry has made to cut ties with Russia. Yesterday, NASA announced a combined $6.8 billion worth of contracts to Boeing and Musk’s SpaceX outfit — both of whom will now shuttle astronauts to and from the International Space Station, located in low earth orbit. These services were formerly provided exclusively by Russian rockets.NASA aims to end partnerships with Russia by the end of 2017, according to CNET.While Blue Origin’s new deal brings Bezos’ aerospace efforts to the forefront — he is rumored to have spent roughly $500 million of his own money on the initiative, which has no affiliation with Amazon, according to Space News — the announcement is likely to heat up competition in a rapidly evolving field.In vying for the lease of a newly available launchpad last year, for instance, Musk famously snapped that Blue Origin was so incapable of developing a “reliable suborbital spacecraft” that “we are more likely to discover unicorns dancing in the flame duct.”Related: Buzz Aldrin on the Future of Space Travel: ‘Get Your Ass to Mars!’ Free Webinar | Sept. 9: The Entrepreneur’s Playbook for Going Globalcenter_img Register Now » Growing a business sometimes requires thinking outside the box.last_img read more
