Smart Week – S for Science
On Monday students of different ages participated in a series of activities relating to the different fields of science
Volunteer students from 3rd year of Secondary Education acted as guides to groups of students of 5th and 6th years of Primary Education to carry out colourful and entertaining experiments such as “elephant toothpaste”.
Other groups learned the basic principles of electricity by making shapes with special plasteline, led lights and batteries which resulted in a giant snake that lit up when the batteries were connected.
The students of 1st year of Secondary did a bacterial culture to discover, over the course of the week, whether washing our hands significantly reduces bacteria on our hands. Who will dare to go to lunch without washing their hands after they discover the results?
Finally, on Thursday the students of 3rd year Secondary attended a conference given by Dr. María José Castillo Garriga, specialist in obstetrics and gynaecology. This two-hour activity allowed students to build on what they had already learned in class and actively participate in the forum that followed the conference, resolving any doubts or concerns in a very close and professional manner.
