A few days ago (June 18-19), the 8th grade students had a unique opportunity to work as scientists in the laboratories of Gläsernes Labor in Berlin. They participated in the intense Chemistry workshop dealing with different methods to extract essential oils, which they subsequently used to prepare their own perfumes. The Biology workshop offered a great occasion to learn plenty about blood and heart.
Our 6b Graders took part in “Aktionstag 2018-Weltverbesserer” organised by the association wirBERLIN e. V. to motivate people in Berlin “to take on more responsibility for their neighborhood, their green area, the playground – in short, the public space – and help make Berlin even more liveable and endearing”. Together with their class teacher Ms Müncheberg, Grade 6b took on responsibility for public spaces around the Berlin Cosmopolitan School on June 8.
This year, four students representing BCS, attended this year’s International Maths Quest competition on May 4-6. The competition is a 3 day event and is open to students 11 years of age and under. Students Navid, Emma, Sara and Michalina (grade 5 and 6) got the highest scores amongst 27 grade 5 and 6 students from the previous year’s competition.
On June 8 the Theater premiere of the play “Geh nicht vom rechten Wege ab!” took place in the auditorium of the Berlin Cosmopolitan School. The students of the Darstellendes Spiel/Performing Arts Club presented a modern fairy-tale collage based on text templates of the Brothers Grimm. German teacher and club leader, Lea Heiligtag developed the collage together with the club students. The Drama piece deals with the timeliness of the fairy tale contents and confronts the audience with what often leads to a bad ending in reality. A remarkable and intense play, which received a big applause and inspired the audience to reflect.
