Science Fair

For my science fair project I did hydrogen and the pop test. My dad the P.E teacher of my school was a judge. I had no idea that he was a judge. The only thing I cared about was impressing my dad. Afterwards I found out he thought mine was the best and most scientific. I won third place and was glad I made my dad proud. Everyone likes a proud family. I was presenting it with a friend.

Presentation Script: Hydrogen is a basic element. It is the richest element in the universe. It was founded by Henry Cavendish in 1776. Hydrogen came from the Greek words hydro (water) and genes (forming). We will be presenting the pop test today. The pop test is the evidence that there is hydrogen. What we do is put the zinc in the sulphuric acid and wait till it makes hydrogen. [If pop test fails: Alright. We understand that it isn’t working so what we do is put magnesium in. Magnesium produces hydrogen a lot faster but goes away quickly.] {If it works: Another metal you can put in the acid is magnesium which makes hydrogen come a lot faster but dissolves quicker.}
Tools: syringe, glass bottle with special cork, acid(not vinegar), zinc, soap ad water (just in case you touch acid and be sure to always wash your hands afterwards)

My Life in Mongolia

Mongolia is a somewhat nice country. My parents like it more than me. It has made me more sick than in any other place I have been. There are some great places to visit though. There is a giant metal statue of Chinggis (Genghis) Khan. It is out in the country side maybe a 2 and a half hours two way trip. I have a wonderful driver named Enkha. There will also be many ger (yurt) camps that you can stay in if you go to the country side but you will need to reserve a ger or two. Most gers have 4 beds. It is a nice p,ace to go to escape pollution. It will take about 1-6 hours to reach any ger camps in the outskirts of UB. The roads are very bumpy so make sure to sit in the back if you get car sick. There is also a National Park called Terelj which is huge and is really populated. It takes about 1 hour. Most ger camps will supply you with breakfast, lunch and diner but always check if they do before going. The top three most bought and eaten snacks by the foreign teachers are 1.Chips 2.Candy 3.Happy Cow. The food that the ger camps will serve are usually mutton, beet salad and other famous mongolian foods. If you are visiting mongolia I hope this post helped.
