Science Centre Learning Journey
Our Primary 3 to Primary 6 students embarked on a Learning Journey to Singapore Science Centre in 2016. The learning journey helped students to better visualise abstract ideas and expand their intellectual horizon. It helped to link their theoretical to experiential knowledge injecting life and meaning to learning so that it becomes real and concrete.
The programme for primary 3 students included gallery trails to the Ecogarden, Defending Science Exhibit and iZ Hero in addition to a Lecture on ‘Magnificent World of Plants’. At the Defending Science exhibit students were able to discover how science plays an important part in stealth and surveillance. iZ Hero is a digital exhibition on online behaviour and self-protection in cyberspace through a combination of storytelling, games and animated characters.
3 it was our Primary 4 students’ turn to get up close and personal with some
creepy crawlies and also observe them under a microscope. They discovered the
many unique and different characteristics and adaptations of insects and learnt
about their life cycles.
Primary 5 students attended the Diversity of Cells lab session in which they
learnt process skills like observation, communication, classification, and
inference. In this session students were taught how to use the microscope to
view plant, animal and yeast cells. In addition they took on the role of young
forensic scientists to solve a mystery based on their ability to identify
