Open Day @ Al Qamar 2017 - Middle School

posted 2 Apr 2017, 07:10 by Webmaster Alqamar

Open Day @ Al Qamar - a huge success. With over a 120 people attending - each child had a great audience.

Children showcased their research projects and models with great confidence and ease.

Here are some of the 6th & 7th grade projects which were outcomes of the Spark Science Club and the "Self Directed Learning" classes.

One SDL project was on innovation in cooking - how cooking technology has changed over time. Another project mapped what drives innovation in transportation. Students identified various variables and mapped different means of transport to these. Another project was on understanding factors which drive "Animal Migrations" while the last was on Chennai - its maps, streets, flora and fauna.

Spark science Club had some fascinating projects. One student studied whether children learn better inside or outdoors. Some worked on seeing if children preferred gadgets or books, whether people get influenced by fancy brands, or they liked microwave or oven baked pizzas. A 7th grader tested the caffeine content in filter and instant coffees, while a 6th grader tried to find whether dosa batter fermented faster at warm or cool temperatures. A cool project was seeing whether natural or chemical mehndi lasts longer.
