At the Upper School Science Fair, students showcased their ability to approach questions scientifically by presenting their hypothesis-driven science experiments to a group of internal and external judges as well as the greater King Community. Grade 9 students, Thomas King and Kaden Lints took home the top prize with their project: "Eyesight and Screen Time: Does watching an electronic screen temporarily impair your vision?"
This series focuses on how Faculty personalize their curriculum and utilize their passions in their teaching. In early May, we checked in with Michelle Sibrizzi, Science Faculty, as she conducts a Grade 7 lab. "For me, personalization means ensuring that each student feels that you know them and care about them, as well as understanding that there are different learning styles."
Will placed second worldwide in Division 2 and Jason placed third worldwide in Division 1. Students from around the world take an annual 45-minute test. Division 1 is for first year physics students; Division 2 is for second year physics students.
