Starting back into the school year, grade 9 spent three full days deeply contemplating the inner workings of eggs. Under the guidance of Ms Lawrence (Biology), Dr Samalikova (Chemistry) and Dr Oates (Physics), the annual Science Days give the 9th grade students a chance to perform science experiments without the time pressures experienced during a regular 90 minute class. Focus is placed on independent research and experimental planning.
This year for the first time the science days were combined with the first round of the International Junior Science Olympiad (IJSO). The IJSO focused on all things eggs. Three days and 120 eggs later, students presented their eggcellent scientific results to the class!
