T.E.D conference. Dinolites

On the 27th of March ten children from Room 6 St Mary’s went to the Taieri E-Day. It was a lot of fun and we learnt a lot too. I attended and my favorite station was the Dinolites. Dinolites are like a magnifying glass, but they are the shape of a cylinder. At one end there is a camera and a light and you hold the other end. Caitlin (The presenter) had a range of different things that’s we could explore with the Dinolites. There were dead spiders, moths, flies and mosquitoes. There were also plants, bones, moss, stones pebbles, feathers, and much more. We had to pick something to examine, then we placed it on the piece of paper and held the light end of the Dinolite with the camera over the object. Then the object would appear on the computer screen but it would be zoomed in and you would be able to see all the detail and then you can take a photo or video from the computer it was so AMAZING!
