Antarctica expo

Ik ben naar Brussel geweest, naar het Museum voor Natuurwetenschappen, naar de ANTARCTICA expo. In veel zalen werden er mooie video’s getoond over pinguins, zeehonden en andere zeedieren, gefilmd door Oscarwinnaar Luc Jacquet. Ik heb een paar dingen geleerd. Bijvoorbeeld dat, doordat het vaker is gaan regenen op Antarctica, het voor kleine pinguinkuikentjes moeilijker is geworden om te overleven want hun dons niet nat mag worden. Ook heb ik een nieuw woord geleerd: Benthos. Zo heet de verzameling van alle leven op de bodem van de oceanen, meren en rivieren.

Ook heb ik een soort doeboek ingevuld met 14 vragen over Antarctica.

Hier zijn nog een paar foto’s van de expo:

We are a family from Amsterdam who moved to Antwerp to homeschool our gifted son because homeschooling is illegal in The Netherlands. The blog https://antwerpenhomeschooling.wordpress.com, started in March 2016, was originally created to register our homeschooling experiences, mainly about our son and later also about his little sister as she gets older. Over the years, however, most of my entries have gravitated towards exploring together with Simon as he has developed an insatiable passion for programming, math and science. We have continued to expose him to a great variety of subjects: he has been learning piano and Chinese since age four, has been taking private lessons in French since we homeschool, he likes swimming. Yet it looks like math (and in a broader sense - patterns and systems) is his true calling. He has been teaching himself programming, machine learning, math and physics in a very disciplined, devoted fashion, and has already impressed several professionals with his depth, determination and perseverance. To learn more about Simon also check out his website simontiger.com Simon's younger sister Neva also has her own blog at nevalena.com where she is mainly planning to write about her concerns around plastic pollution and climate change.
