Today was our last session of Junior Science TAG. If you had finished your Inquiry question/s you got to watch a movie in the staffroom . The movie was Cloudy with a Touch of Meatballs.
It is all about a Scientist/Technology Expert/Inventor who invents something ... that then goes wrong!!!!!
Luckily he knows about grit and perseverance and doesn't give up when the world needs him the most!
We did lots of talking at the end about the ethics of science - Just because you can do something - should you? Is getting famous or making money the most important thing or should you do things to better the world?
We also talked about why we are called "TAG"
- How it stands for Talented and Gifted.
The gift is the potential we have passed on in our genes (like a present) while talent is having the grit and perseverance to make the most of that gift and turn it into a talent!
