Candid Student Reports
The following (emails) were written by members of the Internet Science Exploration during the first session of the program. Some elements may have been removed for various reasons, but the text that remains is in the student's own words.
I like camp. I am learning how to send e-mails. Seriously, I am having lot's of fun and I will also get certified as internet-trained. I would like to know when we are learning html script.
Today Wendy talked to us about her job as a computer scientist Marjorie told us about different websites and how you tell if they are telling the truth about their theories or not.
Today in Internet Science Explorations I learned about how to search the web better. We then learned how to look at a webpage and analize it, whether it was a truthful web page or an opionated web page. We also learned how to bookmark pages so that we don't have to remember the web address.
Today we worked on the internet. I learned how to bookmark a web page. We also went to a lot of different websites. I realy like the Bad Web site. The last thing we did was listen to what Wendy had to say.
Hello guys! Today was fun. We were taught how to use the internet and the difference between search engines. AltaVista uses keywords, while other engines such as Yahoo use headings and subheadings to help you narrow your search topic. We were also taught how to use and edit bookmarks. At the end of the day Wendy came to speak to us about her previous jobs and inparticular about her study with mice.
Today we learned about how to search with out typing in the kewords. We also talked about how to look at things and analize them, for example, we looked at a web page about the flat earth theory, and proved that there was no evedence and that it must be wrong.
I learned about the Heavens gate. Which was a society that beleived in a different faith than most people.
