In inquiry we learnt more about TED Talks. This time it was Richard Turere and he was talking about his invention. He was talking about keeping lions away from eating cows.
First of all he tried to light a fire and keep them away but it was actually helping the lions by to see where the cows are.
Second time he tried a scarecrow on the first night the lions didn’t come, the second night it didn’t work because the lions realised it did not move. So that doesn’t work.
One night he was walking around with a torch and then he realised that lions are scared of a moving light and he used that knowledge to build a flashed that kept on blinking in the night and that tricked the lions, so the lions thought it was moving so they got really scared and never came again. The third time lucky, it worked!
Nearly everybody in that lives around him heard about the invention and everyone asked him if he can do the same thing at there house because there cattle or sheep or anything else was getting eaten by lions. So his invention really helped Kenya and he got a scholarship to a good school and that really helped with his dreams when grows up.
His next idea is to build a electric fence and first time he tried to build it he got an electric shock but he still wishes to build an electric fence.
I really liked his idea and it worked so good. I can not wait to do a TED talk. I loved this session of inquiry!
Today in Inquiry were learning about TED Talks. Ted stands for
A TED Talk is a topic about something that interest the person and they choose to speak about, it could be to talk about cancer and how dangerous it is and persuade people to donate money to a cure or a charity. Thomas Suarez Kept his audience entertained by making them laugh a couple. To be honest I didn’t like his because I wasn’t interested, i’m not into technology I would be more entertained if it was sport. I loved learning about TED talks and i’m very excited to continue with it.
