RAINBOW ARABELLA

Hey Guys, Amazing Arabella here, I have a secret!!! Want to know what it is??

Well I love Rainbows, yep there you go, I am besotted with with those special things in the sky, Rainbows inspire me with creativity and make me very happy! 

Here are some great facts about Rainbows

Where is the sun when you see a rainbow?

When looking towards the rainbow the sun is always behind you.

What makes the bow?

Water droplets and sunlight act upon each other. The droplets are round and it is the way that the sun’s rays hit the droplets that causes the colours of the light to spread out in an arc.

What makes the colours in the rainbow?

Sunlight always looks white but in fact, is made up of seven colours – red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo and violet. The rainbow is a whole band of colours and goes even beyond the colours that the eye can see.

What makes a double rainbow?

If we follow the path of a ray of sunlight as it enters the raindrop, some of it comes back to us. A part of the ray enters the raindrop for a second time and travels along inside the droplet until it comes out once again. That is why we sometimes see the primary rainbow which is produced by one internal ‘reflection’, and the secondary rainbow which is fainter and produced by the second ‘reflection’.

So now you know why I have a Rainbow Addiction, and guess what I have found some very special, colourful things online that will make you happy and feeling very colourful.

Happy Rainbow Day!

Hi Guys, so me and JD the Kid have been invited to a very special event that aims to help young people be inspired by Science, Technology, Engineering, Maths (STEM). STEM, lets go!!! 

team-with-typhoon

It all began in April 2001 when Squadron of Edinburgh Air Cadets were discussing what to do as a project for the next year. They wanted to build a robot to enter the TV programme Robot Wars and their Officer, who worked for an avionics company now called Leonardo, recruited six engineers to assist.

We are heading to two events that are happening this month, hosted by Leonardo UK, the games tour the UK and are on for the whole month!

The Rampaging Chariots kits were created by engineering and famous test pilot, Peter Bennett, who designed and built the Typhoon robots which featured in the original Robot Wars television programme and if you didn’t know, had won many awards along the way.

They supply schools and air cadets with robot kits which they build and customise themselves. Impressive. They then participate in a range of fun competitions from Robotic Football to Robot Sumo Wrestling. Bet you can’t wait to see it!

Here we have the obstacle course, where the chariots have to find their way round controlled by each team with a remote controller
