Grade 12 Northbridge International School Cambodia students, with the guidance of teachers from the Science department, visited Kep National Park in January and carried out different investigations about the variables that describe the forest.
January 13 to 14 was a very active weekend for Grade 12 students. They measured pH of soils samples, used quadrats to study biodiversity, measured soil temperature and height of plants amongst other variables to see how they related to factors like proximity to bodies of water, exposure to sunlight or distance from man-made structures.
The Group 4 Project is a compulsory component of the Sciences in the Diploma program that has gained popularity among students because it is collaborative and is completely student-led.
Teams with representatives from the three Sciences (Biology, Chemistry and Physics) are formed and students plan and carry out an investigation of their choice to apply experimental and analytical skills they have learned in their respective courses.
Kep National Park was the location chosen this time to let our scientists apply their skills and knowledge out in the field.
This experience of planning, collecting, analyzing and reporting is one that makes a real difference in the Diploma Program and lets our students build an ambitious spirit going beyond the classroom and using science to explore problems that they identify in real environments.
Teenagers, including at Northbridge International School Cambodia, are at a crucial stage in their lives as they try to navigate the complexities of growing up. They are faced with the challenge of balancing academic demands, peer pressure, and family expectations, all while trying to discover their own identity and purpose in life.
