Back in June this year, the Primary students of R.E.A.L International School, Cheras Campus held its inaugural ‘Science Fair’. Having their very own Science Fair for the first time certainly thrilled and excited the students as it provided them with the opportunity to experience hands-on learning and healthy competition amongst their classmates from both Key Stages 1 and 2.
Over the three-day fair, the Key Stage 1 students participated in a Science Quiz. This began with the preliminary rounds that were conducted in the respective homerooms from which four finalists were chosen from each level. The Quiz Finals were later held in the Performing Art Room where Yap Hao Yi from Year 1 Honour and Tan Chloe Yan Zi from Year 2 Honour emerged victorious.
The Key Stage 2 students meanwhile; researched, designed and carried out various experiments within their groups. They then completed a report which includes the aim, materials, procedures, results, graph, observation and conclusion of their chosen experiment. All groups presented the findings of their respective experiments in front of the judges via PowerPoint.
After much deliberation, the winning classes and students were:
Year 4 Honour (for Lower Primary) Year 5 Honour (for Upper Primary)
Choo Caleb J-Ren (Team Leader) Kong Karina Yi Zhen (Team Leader)
Ng Shu Kee Phang Jun Ming
Hon Wan Wan Yong Hao-Ran
Luk Shao Tian Gan Yong Hang
OoYuh Yang Lim Jun Ming
Ding Yi Hao Chong Justin Ker Jie
Ivander Kelvin Widjaja Jefferelli Hannah Jasmin
Chong Sunnie Ng Yu Xuan
The winners were presented with certificates during school assembly. Overall, the Science Fair had provided students the opportunity to nurture and nourish their knowledge and creativity by proving scientific theories via a hands-on approach. Moreover, it has fostered greater interest towards science through enjoyable lessons and experiments. All are already looking forward to next year’s edition!
