KLIS science Fair

Tuesday 9th of November 2021 | Campus Life

Science dominates the future. It is time and again unconstrained ideas and exploration of unknown things that have enabled mankind to make great progress. At KLIS, our teachers are taught through PBL (Project Based Learning) and STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, Math). Stimulate children's passion to explore the unknown world, let children think like scientists, act as engineers to solve problems. Through Projected Based Learning, children can develop problem-solving, critical thinking and innovation skills, as well as public speaking and expression skills.

Last week, a science fair led by KLIS Grade 3-5 students ended perfectly. The students confidently introduced their experiments in English to professional judges and audiences, and showed the results of their researches. Can I grow bacteria? Why can lemons produce electricity? Can I make the water magnetic? What is the best strategy to win rock, paper, scissors... 25 various creative topics appeared at the KLIS Science Fair. The school also invited experts from various fields, including biomedical engineer Dr. Xu, cell biologist Dr. Shi, clinical diagnostics Professor Lin,  and German architect Mr. Edwin. Those experts scored the children's experiments and results.

The study of the science project lasted 2 months, involving the study of science, geography, biology, social science, mathematics, art, English and other subjects. At the beginning of the project, the teacher stimulated the interest of the children by showing various interesting and cool experiments. In addition, she connected with the engineers from Silicon Valley in the United States through personal connection, shared scientific research experience online with the students, and give the students an overview of what a science project looks like.

For KLIS students, this way of learning is very common. Students select their interested topic for research on the learning website provided by the teachers, then they proposed their hypothesis on the selected topics, then conducted experiments, observed and recorded experimental data, made conclusions for their experiments, and finally prepare speech in English and made their own boards to illustrate their findings. From the selection of the topic to the presentation of the final results, the whole process is led by the students, and the teachers only guided and provided supports.

"Through this kind of project-based learning, children will have a strong interest in science and be prepared for in-depth study. More importantly, children can learn how to ask questions and find answers by themselves." Ms. Tara the lead teacher of this project, said so.

"The performance of the students is very good. Through such a project, we can highlight the unique learning style of our school. All students are learning scientific research methods and engineer thinking. The excellent teachers of our school truly apply their knowledge to practice, allow students to find their interest in science, instead of letting children learn by rote. As the only K12 American school in downtown Chongqing, we have been committed to provide the best educational resources from the United States and around the world for the international families in Chongqing and help Chongqing to become a more attractive cosmopolis for international talents." 

——Mr. Dino, Principal of KLIS.
