Tanya is the first student to present Science News. Here's speech to the class:
Good morning Miss Leung and Year 8. Today my presentation will be a recent study, which took place last year. It is about a giant sea bird called the albatross, which was tracing patterns while searching for food. The scientist who studies the albatross attached a GPS device to 88 different birds. Each GPS device recorded the position of the bird, either every second or every ten seconds. Using this method, scientists would find out the paths of the birds. The team found out that the birds often flew long distances in a straight line and then made lots of turns and shorter flights as they hunted for food. The main point of this experiment was to convince some other scientists that birds are capable of doing maths. Thank you.
