Challenge based learning in Science

05 November 2014

In an enjoyably messy week in the Science Department at Regents International School Pattaya, students have been working together to try and feed soldiers from the World War 1 trenches!

The students are starting another year of Challenge Based Learning lessons which is an approach to education initially designed to help in the training of doctors. It is suggested that students learn better through the experience of problem solving. The problem in this case was linked to the recent 100 year anniversary of the start of World War 1. Students were shown the problem of malnutrition amongst the battling soldiers of the trenches and set with the challenge of feeding them for less than 100 THB per day. Students then had to find out what the soldiers would need to eat, and also where they could get these nutrients from. The students have worked very hard on this project and have come up with some amazing ideas – from milk mixed with canned sardines, beefsteak mixed with breakfast cereals to healthy fruit smoothies! I was delighted to see that despite only a very small amount of traditional teacher input, the students had managed to cover and exceed all the Biology content that needed to be taught and they had clearly identified the key points that they needed to learn.

Well done to the student for their fantastic efforts! However, I am certainly glad that testing of the mixtures was not compulsory for the teacher!
