TEXT AND PHOTOS BY HARRY YARRALL OF THE ELECTRIC SPACE SMARTIES

 Hi, my name is Harry Yarrall and I’m 10 years old.


 The reason I do stem club is because I really enjoy learning the cool things in life like how we learned about kinetic and potential energy and those weekly questions.
 
I’ve been going to stem club for the last year and the start of this one and I really adore it.
 
This week’s session was about…well it was meant to be making a cool glowing box but we did a thing just for us…We sent a 360 camera...  

 ...into the sky using string and 25 helium filled balloons!!!!! My favourite session by far!

 
What we learned at last week’s stem club was more about 360 degree images and how they work...

 ...and we even made our own and it looked super cool!

 
I loved it when we did our own 360 image...

... and it was super funny how we could see all of us making silly faces, also I really loved it when we sent the 360 camera into the sky because when we put the VR goggles on...

 ...we got to see us jumping underneath the camera trying to grab at the balloons.

 
The most tricky part was when we were trying to put the balloons on the camera...

 ...because the balloons kept on popping when they hit the lights and the hooks on the ceiling, and at one point we ran out of helium, so we had to get a parent to go out and buy another container of helium!

 
 The whole time at Stem club was funny. What was really funny,  was when we floated the camera in the sky because everyone was jumping and laughing making jokes, making silly faces and reaching for the balloons.
