Sci-Fi Inspired Investigations in Year 9 Science

27 April 2016

Year 9 Science students have been putting their creative and investigative skills together in a collaborative project. Tasked with planning investigations that have a Chemistry, Physics, Biology and Sports Science strand revolving around the theme of either Star Wars or Jurassic Park, students have eagerly set to work.

Ethanol rockets, effects of lasers, materials for Storm Trooper suits, fitness plans for astronauts, length of dinosaur strides, fuels for spaceships, the effect of Jurassic atmospheres on seed germination, the colour of light sabre’s of reaction times are but a few of the experiments the students have designed in order to investigate their chosen theme.

A key part of such work is the ability to effectively reflect an IB learner attribute. The project will culminate in presentations that bring together the students’ hard work highlighting the skills practised and further developed along with conclusions and evaluative reflections of the project.

Outstanding focus and determination has seen a superb start to the projects with great collaboration and creativity.
