Por Wailã de Souza Cruz – Astrônomo da Fundação Planetário
Esta semana a Fundação Planetário da Cidade do Rio de Janeiro organiza mais uma Feira de Ciências, evento que faz parte da Semana Nacional de Ciência e Tecnologia (SNCT) e que tem crescido a cada ano. O tema deste ano é “Economia Verde, Sustentabilidade e Erradicação da Pobreza” e instituições do Brasil inteiro participam desde a sua primeira edição, em 2006.
A Feira aqui do Planetário é mais antiga que a SNCT. Na unidade da Gávea ela já acontece desde 2003, e em Santa Cruz é a 4ª vez que ela é realizada. A procura sempre foi muito grande e é inegável dizer que as feiras de ciências têm um papel fundamental na divulgação científica. É ela quem faz, muitas vezes, o primeiro contato da criança com uma experiência científica. Estimular sua participação é plantar uma semente que dará frutos daqui a alguns anos.
Quem nunca quis participar de uma feira de ciências não sabe o que está perdendo. Lembro-me de ter participado de uma, em minha escola, na qual falamos dos tubarões. É claro que fomos influenciados pelo clássico filme Tubarão, de Steven Spielberg, que, se não me engano, já estava na terceira ou quarta sequência. Nossa intenção era levarmos um cação em um aquário para a feira, mas por motivos técnicos não conseguimos um. Mesmo assim foi sensacional descobrir tanta coisa sobre os famigerados assassinos, e uma delas era que eles não eram tão assassinos assim.
Em outra ocasião, um grupo fez um trabalho sobre baratas! Eles levaram uma coleção delas, vivas, para deixar em exposição. Tudo ia bem até alguém deixar cair uma das caixas onde estavam as cucarachas. Não preciso dizer que a confusão tomou conta da feira e, pra piorar, eram só as cascudas!
O clima que envolvia toda a escola era contagiante. Aprendi muitas coisas na época e, provavelmente, essas feiras me estimularam a fazer ciência. Cresci tendo esta certeza, mas tinha dúvidas em qual ramo seguir. Apenas no pré-vestibular que meu pensamento se voltou para o que sou hoje: Astrônomo.
I hurried into the local department store to grab1 some last AWS-SYSOPS Questions & Answers PDF minute Chirsmas gifts. I looked at all the people and grumbled2 to myself. I would be Examprepwell in here forever and I Examguideview just had so much to do. Chirsmas was Examguideview beginning to AWS-SYSOPS Questions & Answers PDF become such 300-101 Dump a drag. I kinda wished that I could just sleep through Chirsmas. But I hurried the best 1Z0-808 dumps I could through all the people to the toy department. Once again I kind 300-101 Dump of mumbled3 to myself at the prices of all these toys, and wondered AWS-SYSOPS Questions & Answers PDF if the grandkids would even play Examprepwell whit4 them. I found myself in the doll aisle5. Out of the corner of my eye I saw a little boy about 5 AWS-SYSOPS Questions & Answers PDF holding a lovely doll.He kept touching6 her hair and Examguideview he held 1Z0-808 dumps her so gently. I could not seem to help myself. I just kept loking over at the little boy and wondered who the doll was for. I watched him turn to a woman and he called his aunt by name and said, “Are you Examprepwell 1Z0-808 dumps sure I don’t have enough money?” She replied a bit impatiently, “You know that you Examprepwell don’t have enough money for it.” The 300-101 Dump aunt told the little boy not to go anywhere that she 300-101 Dump 300-101 Dump AWS-SYSOPS Questions & Answers PDF had to go and AWS-SYSOPS Questions & Answers PDF get some other things and would be back in a AWS-SYSOPS Questions & Answers PDF few minutes. And then she left the aisle. The boy continued AWS-SYSOPS Questions & Answers PDF to hold the doll. After a bit I asked the boy who the doll was for. He said, “It is the doll my sister wanted so badly for Chirsmas. She just knew that Santa would bring 1Z0-808 dumps Examprepwell Examprepwell it. “I told him that 1Z0-808 dumps maybe Santa was going to bring it . He said, “No, 300-101 Dump Santa can’t go where my sister is…. I have to give the doll to my Mama to take to her. “I asked 1Z0-808 dumps him where his siter was. He looked at me with the saddest eyes and said, “She was gone to be with Jesus.
My Daddy says that Mamma is 300-101 Dump going to have 300-101 Dump to go be with her.” My heart nearly stopped beating. Then the boy looked at AWS-SYSOPS Questions & Answers PDF me again and said, “I told my Daddy to tell my Examguideview Mama not 1Z0-808 dumps to go yet. 1Z0-808 dumps I told him to tell her to wait till I got back from 300-101 Dump the store.” Then he asked me if i wanted to see his picture. I told him I’d love to. He pulled Examprepwell AWS-SYSOPS Questions & Answers PDF out some picture he’d had taken at Examguideview the front of the store. He said, “I want Examguideview my Mama to take this with her so the dosen’t ever forget me. I love my Mama so very much and I Examguideview wish she dind not have to leave me.But Daddy says she will need to be with my 300-101 Dump sister.” Examprepwell I saw that the little boy had lowered his head and had grown so 1Z0-808 dumps Examguideview qiuet. While he was not looking Examprepwell I reached into my purse and pilled out a handful of bills. I asked the little boy, “Shall we count that 1Z0-808 dumps miney one AWS-SYSOPS Questions & Answers PDF more time?” He 300-101 Dump grew excited and said, “Yes,I just know it has Examguideview to be enough.” So I slipped my 1Z0-808 dumps Examprepwell money in with his and we began to count it AWS-SYSOPS Questions & Answers PDF . Of course it was plenty for the doll. He softly said, “Thank Examprepwell you Jesus for giving me enough money.” Then the boy said, “I just asked Jesus to give AWS-SYSOPS Questions & Answers PDF me enough money to buy this doll so Mama can take it with her to 300-101 Dump AWS-SYSOPS Questions & Answers PDF give my sister. And he heard my prayer. I wanted to ask him give 1Z0-808 dumps for enough to buy my Mama a white rose, but I didn’t ask him, but he gave me enough to buy the doll and a rose for my Mama. Examprepwell Examguideview She loves white 1Z0-808 dumps rose so much. “In a few 300-101 Dump minutes the aunt came back and Examprepwell I wheeled my cart away. Examguideview I could not keep from thinking 300-101 Dump about the little boy as I finished 1Z0-808 dumps my shoppong in AWS-SYSOPS Questions & Answers PDF a ttally different spirit than when I had started. And I kept remembering a story I had seen in the newspaper several days Examguideview earlier about a drunk driver hitting a car and Examguideview killing7 a little girl and the Mother was in serious Examguideview condition. The family was deciding on whether to remove the life support. Now surely this little boy did not belong with that story.Two days later I read in the paper where the family had disconnected the life support and the 1Z0-808 dumps young woman had 300-101 Dump 300-101 Dump died. I could 1Z0-808 dumps not forget the little boy and just kept wondering if the two were somehow connected. Later AWS-SYSOPS Questions & Answers PDF that day, I could not help myself and I went out and bought aome white roses and took them to the Examguideview funeral home where the yough woman Examprepwell was .And there Examprepwell she was holding a lovely white rose, Examprepwell the beautiful doll, and the picture of the little Examguideview boy in the store. I left there in tears, thier life changed forever. The love that little boy had for his little sisiter and his mother was overwhel. And in a split8 second a drunk driver had ripped9 the life of that little boy to pieces.
