Science Week is an annual school activity co-organized by the departments of Physics, Chemistry, Biology and Integrated Science. Various events coving a range of scientific topics are lauched on school campus, aming to provide our students with an exciting vision of the world of science. They also give students an opportunity to meet and interact with science-subject teachers through different scientific experiments and activities.
There is a specific topic for Science Week each year. The topic of this year is “Science for Life”. We hope our students can apply what they have learnt in science lectures to daily life. On the first three days of Science Week, there were game booths set by different science departments at the podium on 1st floor during lunch break. Demonstration of experiments and interesting activities were held by different departments for students to participate in. Our students showed great interest and participated actively in different games. After finishing each task, they could collect stamps for presents as an encouragement. There was also a book exhibition during the Science Week, where students could enrich their knowledge by reading science frictions and science-related books. On the fourth day, there was a debate competition judged by Mrs Hong, Miss Luk and Miss Chau. The 2 groups of students expressed their viewpoints for and against “The government should legislate for the labeling of genetically modified food”. They performed very well and showed their talent during the competition. Apart from the curriculum time, students could get involved in the Science Week at home by entering the “On-line MC Quizzes” in the e-class, which is consisted of 40 challenging multiple choice questions coving different areas of science. Students with the highest mark and classes with the highest participation rate were awarded.
In conclusion, the Sscience Week offers
our students a platform to explore science, and to enjoy themselves during
their exploration of the science world.
