My goals – Feb 2013

D: My goals are… to be a scientist. That’s you [in blue]; that’s me, with a potion. I’ve got a snack in one hand – it’s an apple – and some of the apple has got into the mixture there, in red. That’s fog, above it, and they’re drops that are coming out of the potion. If you get any of the drops on you, you get more eyes. You’ve got six eyes and I’ve got nine eyes. They’re more bottles for experiments at the bottom.

School dinner and brain surgery

D: I LOVE that type of fish we had at school today!

Me: What sort of fish was it?

D: You know the fish that’s crusty?

Me: Was it battered?

D: No, you know the one that’s a flattened circle?

Me: I think the menu said it was fish in batter. Was the fish inside, with a crunchy coat on it?

D: Yes – it was orange outside. How do they make it? Do they kill the fish, then make it into the crunchy shapes, then chop the tail off?

Me: Something like that!

D: Do they suck the blood out first?

Me: Yes, there’s no blood in it when you eat it.

D: And they take the bones out, and the inside bits out… Do they take the brain out?

Me: Yes.

D: Yuck! I’d like to see that. I’d like to try taking a brain out, just to see. I’d have to wear gloves though, because it would be all yucky. Not the gloves I wear outside though – that would be silly – gloves like in my science kit.

Screwing it up!

screwingitupD: What can we do that’s science, you know – like at my birthday party?

Me: I don’t know – I’ll have to have a think.

D: We could make a water bomb. You just get some paper, screw it up into a ball, put it in some water and throw it and it explodes!

Me: We’ll see.
