Big Science Day
Welcome to Big Science Day at Seisen International School
The Big Science Day is an annual event where students from Grades 8, 10 and 11 proudly display their unique science projects to fellow students and professional judges, showing their wonder and appreciation for the world around us through their imaginative scientific processes in which they produce their final product. Those with the most outstanding projects will be presented with an award in which they can choose what educational material they want to use their award for. Come and vote for your favorite science fair projects from our students!
Also, don't forget to check out our video from last year's event below and browse the tabs on the left to learn more.

Our Middle School students in Grades 7 and 8 take a combined science approach to their learning. The Big Science Day project is an opportunity for them to explore a unique project in a field of their choice; individually or with a partner .
Grade 10 students are finishing off the second year of their IGCSE Coordinated Science Course and also participate in Big Science Day with a culminating project of their choice. The project is an excellent opportunity for students to practice their scientific thinking skills and further prepare them for the IB Diploma.
Students in Grade 11 participate in Big Science Day through their IB Group 4 Science Project, a collaborative project that provides students an opportunity to embark on an investigation across the different IB Science disciplines (Chemistry, Biology, Physics, Environmental Systems and Societies).
