Grade 7 Northbridge International School Cambodia students became interplanetary travel agents last week in their science class. One of the activities in the unit 'Earth Science' led by Ms Silvia and Mr Tom asked students to do research on extraterrestrial environments in the solar system and create a brochure to promote them as destinations for future space travelers.
Orientation in Space and Time is one of the Global Contexts that the MYP programme proposes to be at the core of inquiry units as a way to create a meaningful connection between the content and the real world.
This activity allowed students to appreciate our place in the solar system and the different environments within it.
Commercial space flights are looking less like science fiction today and Grade 7 students took a first look at what the solar system has to offer.
Through this unit, students also worked on their communication and collaboration skills.
Each team of agents had to collaborate to sell the destination and they took turns to be either a customer interested in a interplanetary trip or the travel agent promoting their own destination.
Communication skills were essential at the moment of selling their space trip packages to potential customers.
With the flexibility that the MYP bring into the classroom, teachers have the possibility to explore activities that can reach diverse populations and it was amazing to see how some students that in other contexts might be shy, really went out and sold their destination like real entrepreneurs competing for the market.

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.
After becoming a father for the second time on NYE 2022, I was able to re-evaluate my lifestyle and reflect on how to improve myself for my family, my community, including at Northbridge International School Cambodia, and the planet.
For school year 2022-2023, Northbridge International School Cambodia installed some updates in the Secondary Science Laboratory Classrooms that the NISC Health and Safety Audit Committee has been working on from the previous school year based on the Nord Anglia Regional Manager on Health and Safety suggestions.
For the last several months grade 10 students at Northbridge International School Cambodia have been thinking about their futures and the pathways they intend to take both next year in the DP and subsequently after.
