Grade 12 science students at Northbridge pursue interesting experiments with ambitious goals

Northbridge International School Cambodia students from Grade 12 have been bringing to an end their Internal Assessment in science. Very interesting investigations were carried out this semester by our seniors with the guidance of the DP Science teachers. Their results will be submitted for external moderation next year.

Grade 12 Science

All subjects from the Group 4 (Experimental Sciences) in the Diploma programme make special emphasis on the development of scientific skills.

Not only do students learn a very demanding curriculum that covers advanced topics in Biology, Chemistry and Physics, but they also work on independent investigations of scientific topics of their choice.

Starting as early as September this year, students in Grade 12 have been going through a process where they had to carefully plan all the steps of their investigation.

First they had to identify their variables, formulate a valid research question and plan a careful procedure taking into account possible risks and sources of error.

Grade 12 Science

The next step was the data collection for these investigations. Practical sessions after school were used often since many of the experiments needed more time or closer supervision to be completed.

The majority of the students have completed their data collection stage and are now ready to write their reports with the analysis and conclusions about their initial questions. These reports will be sent out for external moderation as a way to ensure that we keep the highest standards.

As with every year, we are looking at a number of very interesting experiments with ambitious goals that will set the path for many of our future scientists.
