From the 18th – 22nd of November the Middle School students celebrated Science Week, with the aim of engaging and inspiring students of all ages to explore the fascinating world of Science!
Grade 6 were asked to investigate experiments that they could try in class. They were encouraged NOT to try the test first, but to predict what they thought might happen. The students had to demonstrate and talk about their experiments to lots of visitors.
Grade 7 investigated the Science of Sport. In small groups they selected different sports, which they then researched. Their presentations explained how the sport and related equipment actually work and they spoke about physics, chemistry and biology in their presentations.
Grade 8 had the task of planning a lesson for the Elementary students, where they became the teachers! All of the objectives were met and a fun time was had by all. The students now have a greater appreciation of what is involved in planning a lesson.
