On the 8th of March, I went to the E-Wise Discovery Centre in Tai Po with other Science Club members. I learnt a lot about the wisdom of the traditional people. For example, they used a sort of bamboo which is a relatively better conductor for making chairs. When we sat on one, we felt so cool. For leather furniture, as it is a relatively poor conductor, we easily feel hot when we sit on it in summer, and we have to consume more energy than sitting on a bamboo chair to cool ourselves down.
Apart from that, each of us made a dye bag with dried leaves. What’s special about it is that the dye we were using was organic. We were so excited about making different kinds of patterns on the bag. Each of us successfully designed and created a bag with different kinds of leaves. After that, we had to sew it. Although it was challenging to some of us, we all tried our best and completed the task with joy and a great sense of achievement.
