Air Project - HariPrasad

6-Nov-2009

When HariPriya went to music class, HariPrasad had no hesitation what so ever to do the same. He wants to do everything what his sister do. And when HariPriya did a project for her standard, its very natural that HariPrasad will also follow the suit.

HariPrasad did a project on Air. He had to explain few things.
- Air (Oxygen)is required for burning
- Air has weight
- Air cannot be seen, it can be felt.
His mom prepared chart explaining these points.

Chief guest and some other people came to his desk and he was given a mic to explain his project.

Introduction was pretty much the same. Chief guest was standing in front of him. He then said something regarding air and lit a candle. He then closed the candle with a beaker and then the candle was off. He said air is necessary for burning.

He had a balloon filled with air and the other one without air tied to a stick. He gave that 2 to the chief guest. He asked which one is heavy. The chief guest said the balloon with air is heavier. He asked "Do you know why?" He chief guest nod his head saying No. He said air has weight.

He also had a machine which is used to fill air in the balloon. He asked the chief guest can you see air? The chief guest again said No. HariPrasad then pumped air using that machine on the chief guest's hand. HariPrasad said "you cannot see air but you can feel it"

Everybody clapped their hands.

HariPrasad's teacher said, "for I std level doing experiment and explaining was great."

Good HariPrasad. I heard that you have been very casual and explaining your project to all whoever came to your place. Congrats.

love,

Electronics Project - HariPriya

6-Nov-2009

HariPriya had explained her electronics project in her school exhibition. The project is 'Match the Following'. There will be a list of questions on the left side of the board and answers jumbled on the right side. One has to use the push button to match the answers with the questions. The project was designed by Sujji chinamma.

When the chief guest and others came to her desk, the conversation went this way. HariPriya was given a mic.
HariPriya - I am V. HariPriya III Std D section, Young ones.
Chief guest and others were standing in front of her.
HariPriya - Do you know how the circuit works?
Chief guest - No.
HariPriya - Battery is inside the box. Push button is not pressed. The circuit is open. Bulb is off. When push button is pressed, circuit is closed, and the bulb is ON.
Chief guest said good and asked her class teacher to keep this project safe.

Well done, HariPriya. But I heard that you were hesitating to explain it to everyone because they were continuously pressing the push button and you were not comfortable with the circuit getting spoiled.

Anyways, good attempt HariPriya, Congrats.
with love
-Maama.

Happy Birthday

07-Nov-2009

Hi HariPriya,

Today you are turning 8. Happy B'day. You were in pink frock which Sujji chinamma got you and that so called diamond neck-lace which I got you. You must have got a bouquet of roses and a small teddy. Currently London is suffering with a postal strike due to which I could not send you a better gift. I explained this to you, I apparently you understood it too. You also told me that the show case is filled with teddies and now left without any space.

And you were telling me that you did some project in your school with electronics and HariPrasad did something with 'Air'. I didn't get much details about your projects while we were on call, I will post them once I get to know about that.

lots of love
- Maama
