Science has always been seen as a very content-based subject.
Traditionally, the students need to memorise different scientific laws, elemental properties, physics equations, and biological events. We have found that, although all this information is required, simple memorisation of facts is not always the best for student learning.
This is why we are always trying to set open-ended questions, projects, and experiments for our students to explore. It is our belief that although subject knowledge may be forgotten once the student leaves school, the skills acquired in analytical and critical thinking will never be forgotten.
I am also very happy to say that we have chosen our team of students who will be representing NAIS Manila in the Southeast Asia Regional STEAM Festival. We had so many applicants this year that it was very difficult to decide who should go.
For those whose applications were not successful, please do try again next year!
The festival will be held in Thailand from 3rd to 5th of November and will introduce the STEAM MIT challenges for this year.
Head of Science
