Anorak's Corner / Primary School Science

Anoraks only...

My wife teaches year 4 primary (9 year olds)

Next week they are doing “rust”

I’ve been asked (= told) to find a load of experimental kit:

Steel nail
Zinc plated nail
Stainless nail
Copper nail
Brass nail
Wrought iron nail

These are to be subjected to immersion in the following:

Rainwater
Carbonated water
Salty water
Vinegar
Lemon juice

I can probably dig up most of them as screws or bolts, but copper nails?

Would anyone like to predict what 30 year fours will find?

We all wore Derri boots when I was at Uni.

They were waterproof!

One of my mates painted his so they looked like racing boots.

Me too.

If we have an in-house system, maybe I’ll go and see if I can find them!

so, now I'm really confused or don't understand English humor  8)

In our day (70s in my case) the stupid kids always sat at the back of the class.
An apple was a present for the teacher.

We need a flatbed scanner with 7000-10,000 dpi resolution.

Mine goes to 6,400 but only using some fancy interpolation algorithm which won’t help on a small fiche.

Unless of course, someone on here has the kit?

You can do this at home, but…

Most/all home scanners have nowhere near enough resolution to scan a fiche.

How many pages do you have?

I can probably find a company to scan this for us (and maybe “crowd fund” it)

Menno has probably done work for most of us!

He did my K0, albeit when it belonged to James.

Vibration?

Mine does it when the lever catches on my riding jeans

Farnborough hasn’t been the same since the 70s before H&S stopped displays over the crowd. I went in 74 and the Lightning stood on its tail above the crowd and went to afterburners...

I’ve been since and it has never been the same.

What is it? / Re: 750 Downpipe
« on: March 05, 2019, 06:49:41 AM »
can we arrange a relay ??

When I had a VFR800 (2003/4 ish) the VFR form had a section called “Viffer Mail” which was exactly that.

Stuff went all over the country on bikes and in the back of work vans etc.

Maybe we should have CBMail
