让“事实”说话——记IB12年级“环境”科学调研活动

Action Louder than Words—— The “Environment” Scientific Research of IB Grade 12

 

2019年8月28日至30日,Y12 IB学生开展了物理、化学、体育锻炼、健康科学等学科的科学研究活动。

From 28th to 30th August 2019, Y12 IB students held a Science research event spanning subjects such as Physics, Chemistry, Sports Exercise and Health Science, etc.


主题从温室效应对地球温度的影响,环境和食物热量之间的联系,到空气质量和人类心率之间的联系。他们的努力表明,学生已经成功地掌握了这些基本的科学概念,并能够将它们融入日常生活。

Topics ranged from the impact of the greenhouse effect on the earth’s temperature, the connection between the environment and food calorie count, to the link between air quality and human heart rate. Their endeavours show that students have successfully grasped these essential scientific concepts and are able to integrate them with daily life.


一个例子是加热一个装有土壤和植物的烧瓶,并将其与另一个空烧瓶进行比较,以探索温室效应对全球变暖的影响。另一项有趣的研究涉及一项关于水中不同矿物复合材料对健康的影响程度的调查,以及如何应用过滤方法提高水安全水平。

One example was heating up a flask containing soil and plant and comparing it with another empty heated flask in order to explore the impact of the greenhouse effect on global warming. Another interesting study involved a survey of the extent to which different mineral composites in water causes health issues, and how to apply filtering methods to increase the level of water safety.      


这些项目增强了团队成员之间以及团队之间的协作技能。学生有很好的机会来提高他们的人际交往能力,以及增加他们的知识。在3天的活动结束时,学生被要求为他们的探讨来进行陈述。这也提供了一个磨练他们口语技能的机会。 


The projects enhanced their collaborative skills both among their own team members, and across teams. Students had very good opportunities to improve their interpersonal skills as well as increase their knowledge. As they were required to present their findings at the close of the 3-day event, this provided an opportunity to hone their oral skills as well.

IB课程的特色在于从实践经验中学习的方法。这项任务鼓励学生认识科学的应用意义,了解科学研究的局限性,增强他们的团队精神,磨练他们的项目管理技能。为期三天的科研工作大大提高了他们对与环境变化有关的社会和道德问题的认识,同时也能让学生直接体验到在研究和实验过程中遇到的一些困难。这有助于他们跟上最新的科学技术方法,并激励他们提高自己的研究技能。


The IB curriculum is distinguished by its experiential learning approach. This task encourages students to appreciate the applicational significance of science, understand the limitations of scientific research, enhance their team spirit and hone their project- management skills. The 3 days of scientific research work have done much to raise their awareness of the social and moral issues related to environmental change, as well as enabled the students to directly experience some of the difficulties encountered in the process of research and experiments. This helps them to keep abreast of the latest scientific and technological methods, and inspires them to improve their research skills.
