What is Science After School?
In our Science classes, students will do experiments in Chemistry, Physics and Biology. Students will test materials, take measurements and set up apparatus. For example, in Biology, we will be using microscopes and dissecting internal organs of small animals. In Chemistry, we will create batteries and examine the properties of different metals. In Physics, we will cover thermal dynamics, magnetism and energy.
With greater understanding of scientific principles based on various fun experiments, students will be able to solve problems and innovate new solutions.
|Observe convection||Dissect a fish||The composition of light|
Observe convection using thermosensitive slime
Dissect a fish to investigate internal organs
Investigate the composition of light using diffraction gratings
|How to work on the projects|
We will cover a range of topics but each lesson will be broken down into:
(1) Asking a question: set your research question through observing an object or event
(2) Making a hypothesis: form possible explanations to answer your question
(3) Conducting an experiment: predict the results, test your hypothesis and collect data
(4) Analyzing the data: reflect on the results
(5) Showing your results: show and explain your findings
|Review / Introduction||Review the previous class and check homework|
|Discussion||Students talk about what they already know on the day’s subject|
|Experiment||Students set up an investigation and make observations|
|Presentation||Students talk about their results and whether they were surprised by their results|
