We had these back stream tables that we put dirt in, to represent the hill side.



My group did, the effect of a non-steep hill to the efffect of a really steep hill. We pured water down it, at the begining of the meandering stream to see how much rain erodes sides of hills and streams. we found that The steeper it is the faster and more erosion happens because the water is going faster around the corners so it widens to make it bigger for the strem to go down.



Then we noticed the steeper it is more dirt falls to the bottom from the water currant!

Ok, so Odyssey is on Lake Cresent its a camp for 8th graders to learn about nature on the Olympic Pennisula. Every day we go for a hike some hikes we, Ozeete Lake, Merrymere falls, Sul Duc, Hurricane Ridge, Storm King(Optional), ect.



This camp was fun we had a Cabin full of 13 girls, but the cabin held 8-9 it was a little cramped but we made it thru.



The best night was Skit night, i was a blast, the counslers skit was so funny! (re-make of us)                   I would deffanty go BACK! :)

When i learned about Earthquakes, i Learned there is 4 different types of waves such as.....



s wave is for secondary wave. s waves move perpendicular,



p waves= primary wave, type of elastic wave that can travel through liquids and gases, like the earth. It travels faster then S so it happens sooner.



rayleigh waves are also a type of surface waves. like ocean waves rolling in,



Love waves= They move side to side. And have lots of damage.

transform boundaries: 2 plates slide past each other.



divergent boundaries: when plates are moving apart from a point.


convergent boundaries: 2 plates come together/join at a point.





The plates move by diverging or converging by their Boundrys.



 As the Atlantic Ocean gets bigger, the Pacific gets smaller.




Trenches are recycled by land. And Crusts are connected which causes continents to enlarge.



I had the south American plate, that plate has a Huge Trench in the East alantic Ocean.



It has lots of cluster Volcanos on the south end, and some mountians but not huge ones !

So, on thursday the 19th, my girl scout troop went to Google (the makers are in seattle) 

I just hhad the best time! it was so much fun we got a tour of all the floors and desk's, room and everything in the building! i would love to work there! then we had trivia our team name was (the Google-ites) we won the challenge with 8 wins!

then after that we went on a scaventure hunt thoughout the whole office area.

Then we had workshops, 1. we learned how internet works by like going to google.com so it has to go to the root name server then to the .com nameserver then finally to google.om, and we learned

when internet is slow that means alot of people are on that website and tomany people for the servers to do at once!

2. then we went to where they interview people that buy and use the products. the have this really cool computer that tracks your eyes so they can tell if your lying or if you really do like the prduct. then you switch and we go in the room next to

it and sit and watch the other kids use it and find something on google.

and 3. we learned how codes works and a new laguage (star).!

Well i had a blast at it if you have any questions or comments comment on it and ill comment you back!

Ok, so we did this lab where you make a boat out of alluminum foil (12by12in squares)


We did ours by how many more pennies it could hold by adding 1 salt canister to the tub of water each time. so with no salt it held 33 pennies, but by the end with 6 canisters it held 43 so, im between was like 1 or 2 more each time! That is beacuse the water beacame more dense and the object in the water could be denser because the salt makes the water deser each time you add some!

We made a webquest about density and buoyancy. all of the information we gathered is on it. Please watch it and learn! if have any questions just ask! i will be more than happy to answer them for you!!!

so we did this thing were there was 5 people making crowns for the king and only one used all gold 4 others tried to jip him and keep the gold for them selfs. but it was a little fishy because they all had diffrent mass's all the same volume tho. So we calculated the mass divided by the volume and got all the densitys than looked at the density of gold an it was 19.3 and the only one with that  was # 4. so 1, 2,3 and 5 jip the king and gave him a crown made out of diffrent material(steel, aluuminum, nickel mercery and others.) By doing this i hae learned how to calculte density and campare mass and volume to materials!

We(our Class) watched Mr. G us  blow tourch and a brass ball and a rod with a hole on the end. we used the torch to get the ball hot and then it didnt work anymore. the ball could not fit in.




I learned that with most/some objects, the hotter it get, the less dense it is. The only substance that breaks that rule is water(h2o).



We also did this one thing with Hot water(red Dye) and one with cold(Blue Dye). it was two tubes, standing parrelel,



and to small tubes connecting to them by 2 parrellel. the colors mix. then the blue went throught the bottom adn the red rose through the top parrelel laying ones then red stayed at the top because heat rises and all the blue sunk.

My team, did a lab to see how much Slat it took to Float a Orange Crayon. We did a Orange Crayon Sized at 2cm, 4cm and 6cm.  With 150ml of Water in a Beaker. We thought it would all float at the same time becauseit all has the same density but it didnt 2cm floated in 2 spoonfuls of salt . 4cm floated in 2cm and 6cm in 4 spoonfuls. It was wierd results but we thought it was going to all be the same but we were wrong.
