Hello. my name is Dan.

My First Presentation

In Thailand, I never had to make a presentation and present it in front of the class, but since I moved to the United States, schools are more advanced and there are many presentations that you have to make throughout your school years. So this is the first presentation in my life that I presented in front of the class and it’s about Jewish Migration. It might not be as good as the last one though. Press “S” or press the cog wheel for speaker notes (there’s not much but… Read more My First Presentation

My Best 8th Grade Presentation

Our Social Studies teacher gave us our biggest assignment since 8th grade will end soon and this assignment is worth a lot of points so I tried my best to make this perfect. It took me around 1 week to create this and present this and I thought it’ll be nice to show it to you because I’m very proud of it. I made a presentation about Benjamin Franklin using google slides. His biography, information about that time period, and his primary sources need to be included. You also had… Read more My Best 8th Grade Presentation

No copying content anymore

Hello, how is it going everyone? I hope you had a wonderful month. In this post, I am going to talk about how my blog will change and what will happen to it. If you have noticed lately I’ve been copying content from other websites and sourcing them. But I guess people could conduct their own research and just answer the questions themselves. So here’s what I’m going to do: I am not going to copy any content from other websites I am going to make my own content somehow.… Read more No copying content anymore

First Day in a Foreign School

*These are some of my opinions and comments and I am not insulting anything/anyone School Website: http://www.nhcs.net/noble/ This is the first American school that I’ve been in and I would like to tell my experience to others. I hope you are looking forward to this and I tried to take pictures but it’s hard because there is a rule that you cannot take pictures. This is Noble Middle School, one of the public schools in Wilmington North Calorina. This school has a very strict policy about bullying, inappropriate content, and… Read more First Day in a Foreign School

Paper or Digital?

I rather use paper because I feel much more comfortable and it is easier for me read and some students can process the content better. But some kids are more comfortable with screens. E-readers appeal by being travel-friendly and storing a whole library at your fingertips, but print books seem to win when it comes to comprehension. Studies have shown that readers often remember more when they consume material in print rather than from a digital source. This is most likely linked to the concept of spatial context, which causes… Read more Paper or Digital?

Are boys actually better in math?

In preschool and elementary school boys and girls generally perform similarly on math tests. Later in school, in high school and college, more consistent differences start to emerge. In addition, gender differences are often larger among higher-performing students but not necessarily for lower- or average-performing ones. Within this specific group of higher-performing math students, boys tend to perform better. Similarly, when studies do find gender differences among elementary school children, they find these start to appear for higher-performing students earlier in schooling than they do for lower- and average-performing ones. Whether a… Read more Are boys actually better in math?

Thailand to America… A long Journey

I’ve finally got a new home in the USA and North Calorina is a great place to live! Flying from Thailand to America was a very long and tiring journey. My family still haven’t sold our house and so half of the family’s money is over there. And we’re living poor here, but it’s still fun. We had to fly from my city to Bangkok. Then Bangkok to Hongkong, and Hongkong to Washington D.C. This whole journey took around a week to be in North Calorina. Also, I hate jetlag haha!… Read more Thailand to America… A long Journey

I can’t do Chemistry Experiments anymore

Ah, the good old days and my craze for science experiments. It was a fun time but I’m starting to lose motivation and I also don’t want to waste money. Since I’m moving to the U.S.A., I had to sell all of my supplies to someone else and if I move there, I’ll need to buy all of my supplies again. I cannot do this hobby because I’m just bored of it. You might be asking: “Dan, then what are going to post on this blog?” I’ll be posting about… Read more I can’t do Chemistry Experiments anymore

End of the week #3 (My exam results)

  Alright so my midterm exam results finally came out, and I didn’t do so well. Here are three reasons why didn’t do well: First, I wasn’t paying attention (I didn’t put effort into getting good grades). Second, I past the 8th grade many times already, and the grades are better than this. And lastly, the test is in a language I’m not comfortable with. My parents were upset that I got these grades, but I wasn’t sad. Because I didn’t try my best (but they won’t listen to me).… Read more End of the week #3 (My exam results)

Mercury Compared to Water

Mercury Compared to Water This is going to be a short post because I’ll be comparing Mercury to Water. I’ll be trying to find out why mercury is 14 times denser than water: I poured all of my mercury into a petri dish and I have 22.70 grams of it. So I added the same weight of water into a petri dish and weighed it. And after that, I pour the mercury and water into beakers to measure them. There are 1.6 ml of mercury and 22 ml of water.… Read more Mercury Compared to Water

I’m Back!!

It’s already turning to December, but I didn’t do anything! (I was gone for a month). But now I’m back to make more posts! Nothing much happened in this month, I really don’t have much time for my blog left since I go to the gym. My dad gave me twice of school work because the gym is in the morning and I’m tired in the afternoon (too tired to study). So I need to give more work to myself on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. But don’t worry, I went… Read more I’m Back!!

Turning a Coin to Silver and Gold (Simple Redox Reaction)

Turning a Coin to Silver and Gold (Simple Redox Reaction) This simple experiment will make you understand the redox reaction. This is one of my favorite experiments so I decided to make a post about it. Things you’ll need: a copper coin (a penny, basically), zinc powder, sodium hydroxide (more than 50%), alcohol lamp, forceps, and a beaker. Pour Sodium Hydroxide into a beaker and pour some zinc dust in it, enough to cover the coin. Put the coin the beaker and wait for a couple hours, I’ll be using… Read more Turning a Coin to Silver and Gold (Simple Redox Reaction)
