In 4th year Primary our students experienced the thrill of a volcanic eruption. Having created their own volcanoes during the week, they witnessed the lava erupt in an amazing spectacle. As a reward, each student took home a lava lamp, a tangible reminder of the magic of science.
A microscopic scavenger hunt was conducted by our 5th year Primary students, who explored the world though a microscope and discovered wonders invisible to the naked eye.
Our 6th year Primary students demonstrated their scientific skills by classifying unknown rocks using dichotomous keys. This exercise not only challenged their observation and classification skills, but also encouraged problem solving and critical thinking.
Meanwhile, our Secondary Education students faced the exciting “eggstronaut” challenge. The task was to protect an egg from a three-metre fall using only four materials. This activity not only tested their ingenuity and creativity, but also gave them hands-on experience in applying scientific concepts.
In addition, the Secondary students enjoyed visiting different stations dedicated to physics, chemistry and technology. Guided by their more experienced peers in each subject, they participated in experiments and demonstrations that allowed them to immerse themselves directly in the fascinating world of science.
In short, Science and Technology Day was not only an educational event, but also an exciting and participatory experience that left a lasting impression on all students. This innovative and hands-on approach to science education promotes a love of learning and exploration, encouraging young people to become future scientists and technologists.
