BTN- Mars experiment


This video was about people set up in a dome to try to simulate what it would be like living on Mars. A small group of people were set up in an 11 metre- wide dome to see what it would be like living on Mars. They have hardly any privacy, and not much entertainment. But if they are able to get through this and the 1-3 year journey to Mars then it will open up many possibilities. When will humans travel to Mars? Could you survive in this dome? It would be very hard and you would get bored super easily.

100 word challenge: Bricks Gorilla Yellow Running Pretty


Well, here I am. Billy the dancing gorilla, performing for my first time at the Da Silva circus. Whoo, boy. Here we go. I have to dance across the tight rope, with no harness, no nothing, just a pretty little pink tutu. If a fall, it’s a 100 metre drop onto solid yellow bricks. I would definitely perish. Ok. Let’s do this. I climb up the ladder and start taking deep breaths. Ok. I can do this. No I can’t. Yes I can. No I actually can’t. I climb down the ladder as fast as I can and see two big emu guards coming. Oh crap. This is the time to start running. So I do.

100 wc- … because I said so…


“O’ mighty Oracle, tell us the answer to life, tell us the answer to the universe, and tell us the answer to everything and everything! Tell us the answer to the question that people have pondered for millions of years! Tell us the ultimate answer!” Says Fredougle the third.

“Ok,” Says the Oracle in a deep, raspy voice. “The answer to the question of life, the universe, everything and anything, the answer to the question that people have pondered forever. The answer to this question is…”


“Cheeze doodles.”

“WHAT? Why is the answer?”

“Because I said so.”

Stupid space thing that made me stay in at recess


This video was about the planets in the solar system. Jupiter is the largest planet. There are four terrestrial planets and four gas giants, not including Pluto. Earth is the only inhabitable planet. Why did I have to stay in at recess when I already watched the video? When will all the planets die? When the sun swallows Earth, I wonder if we will have already moved to another planet by then.

Mars rover BTN


This video was about how NASA has sent a Mars rover to Mars. It is currently on Mars, gathering information. It was sent up in 2012. It has lots of high tech equipment such as lasers. NASA was extremely happy when the landing was a success. How long until the rover runs out of charge? Is it solar-powered? Scientists predict that in about 40 years humans will have landed on Mars.

Video reflection: The ancient study of astronomy






This video was about astronomy and who uses it. The Babylonians, Mayans and ancient Greeks all used astronomy. The Babylonians and Mayans created calendars and used them to plan important things. The Babylonians used astronomy mainly for astrology and horoscopic purposes. What other races used astronomy? How did they write that let them record huge masses of astronomy? Astronomy has been around for centuries.

100 word challenge: …it reminded me of a time when…


My first ever bungee jumping. Hoo boy. I’m so scared. Actually no, more than that. I’m horrified. I’m 100% petrified. What if the bungee line breaks? What if I fall off the bridge before the guy has even tied the know around my ankles? It’s not too late to back out. The guy is still doing up the ropes around my ankle. He is almost finished and… Yep, now its too late. I can’t back out. Strangely, this reminds me of a time previously, like I’ve done this before. Weird, It’s like Deja Vu, but stranger. And then the guy pushed me off the edge.

100 word challenge: Tug of war


The epic 30 kilometer long tug of war between Australia and America. Every single person in Australia and America is here. Babies, old ladies, pregnant mothers, overweight fathers, even Donald Trump is here (though he is surrounded by security guards). The tug of war started half an hour ago, and no progress has been made. Oh? What’s this? I am getting reports that the rope is starting to break! It’s down to three strands! Two strands! The last strand! And the rope has broken and everyone competing has now fallen backwards onto their heads and is now dead. So all the other countries built a memorial to commemorate the loss of the entire Australia and America.


100 word challenge: … but what colour should it be? …


My amazing cupcake. Well, my soon-to-be amazing cupcake. I haven’t baked it yet. But I am about to. I pour in one cup of sugar, one cup of milk, 1 and a half cups of flour and some vanilla flavouring. But what colour should it be? I reckon purple. I put in two droplets of purple food colouring. Perfect! Oh wait! I almost forgot a pinch of salt! I grab the salt shaker and slowly grind the tiniest bit of salt out. But then the lid breaks off and salt goes everywhere. NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO! My amazing, beautiful, perfect cupcake! Ruined!

*note: this is not an actual recipe for a cupcake



High jump. Oh my god. I’m so nervous. It’s the year 2156 and I’m at districts for athletics. I’m in high jump. In case your some old person who’s reading this time capsule that we sent back in a time machine, right now your probably dead. But I’ll still tell you how we do high jump here in the future. We all meet right beside Northlite River. We then take turns at climbing up some stairs and jumping off the plank made of cyllerbernetic wood (which probably hasn’t been invented yet) and into the cooked snot of a Chelbernite (which is super soft). And that is how we do high jump in 2156 (oh and by the way Fortnite is still in fashion).
