Big Science Day

Welcome to Big Science Day at Seisen International School

Big Science Day is an annual event where Seisen students proudly display their wonder and appreciation for the world around us through imaginative scientific processes which lead them to their final products. Even though Big Science Day is held online this year, due to the COVID-19 global pandemic, students are still able to display and communicate the tremendous effort and ingenuity they put into their projects.   
 

This year our students were able to create and develop a wide variety of projects connected to biology, chemistry, physics, and design: 

Grade 8 students demonstrated their scientific aptitude with their own developed scientific investigations 

Grade 9 students applied their design & engineering skills to create physical masterpieces that have real-life applications

Firebird students investigated how the learning environment and sustainability of our school could be improved

Special thanks go to the following teachers: 

Ms. Julie Ann Haggerty (Grade 8 Science Teacher) 
Mr. Greg Wilk (Grade 8 Science Teacher) 
Ms. Ceejay Jader (Grade 9 Design Teacher) 
Mr. Doug Brittain (Communications & PR Coordinator)

Mr. Charles Cabiles (Science Head of Department)
