I don't think is a preparation for disclosure, I think that would be different, the media following of a disclosure would be, in my opinion, more about the "hows" and "whys", not reporting about a crash that only left some debris.

Maybe this training for fake reports.


Very good point...... I wonder if we/u/i worked in that environment then what would we do or say to further that educational agenda? In my mind-set i would be asking WTF??????

There could be another reason.

Like that Men In Black movie.

Let's say there really are some crashes and the school projects are the cover ups?

The public bought the first one and even us ATSers are pretty willing to just accept this one. And we don't even have pictures yet.

Was the one that all the African kids saw and drew pictures of, a hoax?

Another question might be - why are they visiting schools - maybe the soccer fields for crop circles? This one was at night right? Maybe kids leave an aura or energy source even when they're not there?

It seems someone
took my original warning to the OP quite personally. I never suggested such a thing, of course you're always free to question anything. However, I've yet to see you actually do that and/or offer a contribution to this thread; other than to attack me and twist my words.

I wish when I was in school they did things like this. Pretty cool way to practice your journalism skills.


It's funny you say that, I'm not aware of UFO crashes being regularly "staged" at elementary schools; as something for the purpose of study. Perhaps you could elaborate further on this phenomenon?

Interesting story.

Hang on.

the article about the "UFO" crash was dated Jan. 27, 09.

that last link to the paper showing the kids looking at the debris
from the school "project' was back in December.

These are two separate incidents, or have I missed something?

I recall having some 'role play' lessons in forensic science as part of my physics class. I must have been 11-13 years old. It doesn't seem that far fetched to me that a school would set up a 'role play' scenario for the children to interact with. Taking notes, observing, asking questions, discussing with other pupils, compiling their findings, coming to their own conclusions and then reporting on it. Sounds like a brilliant lesson to me!

after all that not a single picture or video?
It figures thats the case.

maybe the reason why they are visiting schools is simple...

They want too...They don't need a reason to do something.

so wait a second, tons of witnesses and none of them had a phone to take pictures of the incident?

O_O I would have recorded a video... tho i would be pretified hehehe

Interesting story indeeed....... but it does kinda puzzle me that in todays technological age that no-one had a fone w/ video or pic functions to capture this event.....

Government drones. Sorry, I don't mean to be cynical but the use of rockets implies that there is a flammable substance to burn to propel the UFO/drone?! Why would aliens travel here and then use jet fuel - surely their technology is more advanced? The conventional Unmanned Aerial Vehicles are aeroplane or helicopter shaped Link

but there is no reason why there should not be saucer shaped drones or UAV's which resemble apparent alien spacecraft. This link shows UFO -type drones in action. UFO shaped UAV

I wonder if there are large scale models which use the Coanda effect or others using anti-gravity.
Please deny ignorance and question everything.
Peace

HOAX. What a waste of time...Check out the caption (linked article) to the photo at right with the school kids..."ALIEN INVASION? Investigators and youngsters study some debris from an alien landing. The story was an elaborate hoax organised by Yeo Moor Junior School in Clevedon as part of a journalism project."

It may well have been a hoax, or more likely a journalism project for elementary students. You don't find such an education lesson such as this for children to be at least the slightest; strange? .. Out of all things, why pick aliens and a UFO crash as an inspiration for creativity?

Remember, the educational system is mainly a reflection of what the government wants you to learn about, at a very young age apparently.

Because elementary students HAVE TO STUDY journalism. It's such an important aspect of our society and a profession all kids dream of.
So later they can report on the last maker of wooden shoes in a town they never heard of, or some guy repairing bells in his garage.
Learning journalism gives kids all important skills to survive in our modern society, teaches them chain of command, lies, stupid smiles and boob surgery, everything to keep kids going on having nice dreams.

I'm sure you've heard countless times that in a position of distress the common woman walking her dog isn't going to think, "I should probably take a picture, or make an audio recording!" Most people just get scared and run away. I don't necessarily blame them either.

That being said,

It sounds a little strange, especially with the reports of foot prints and investigators claiming it to be alien. I'd like to believe this one is legit, but it's hard to say without more information.

Though frankly, black-ops, extra-terrestrial, or plane ol' mystery I say the being could have at least left a note with its insurance information!



Edit: eep, looks like I jumped the gun on that one. This kind of middle school journalism project seems a little silly for that age. At least in the US. Unless there's something about UK middle school kids I'm missing out on? Last I checked kids are kids no matter where you go.

Thanks for the hint Master Shen. I can't upload the photo of the students and "debris," but the caption from the Mercury newspaper photo explains everything, doesn't it?

Caption:


ALIEN INVASION? Investigators and youngsters study some debris from an alien landing. The story was an elaborate hoax organised by Yeo Moor Junior School in Clevedon as part of a journalism project.

This is hokum. There is no empirical evidence, no pictures, no witnesses. Clearly a school project with some local journos gullible enough to pick up on it without investigating properly.

It does raise some points about UFO psychosis - the more mundane the lo-cal, the believable the unlikely event.

OK (sorry for the caps) BUT IF THE SCHOOLS ARE PUSHING THIS EDUCATIONAL CURRICULUM THEN THE QUESTION HAS TO BE ASKED....

Why the hell are they doing this?


Speaking as a teacher in an afterschool program....

Keeping the interests of kids is very difficult. We have to coerce them into thinking (because they'd rather sit and chat with their friends as opposed to sitting and listening to a lecture and memorizing things.) Getting them to think critically (analyze things) and learn forensics (evidence that will stand up in a formal argument) is almost impossible... unless you have one of those wonderfully curious kids.

Then you have to figure out how to teach them and encourage them while still dealing with the others (who may be difficult to control, like to talk over you, and not pay attention... or who may be autistic or have ADHD.)

As a consequence, we're not doing "education"... we're doing "edu-tainment.

That means you have to make the lessons lively and entertaining, which means going by the things that interest kids.

"Scooby Doo" (the cartoon) is very popular with most kids. So is any kind of detective cartoon. Outer space cartoons and anime (often with a space theme) are popular. They also like "weird stuff."

I think it's a pretty neat idea. You can tie it into some of the big UFO cases and get them to analyze them and present their findings.

Kudos to the teacher!

No I don't find it strange. I think the kids would find this incredibley inspiring, fun and mind expanding.


Remember, the educational system is mainly a reflection of what the government wants you to learn about, at a very young age apparently.

Yes but only as far as the curriculum goes. If a teacher wants to introduce certain topics to aid the learning process of the curriculum then he/she is fine to do so.
