San Anton School`s Science Fair

On Friday 16 th May 2008, Education Minister Dolores Christina was welcomed to San Anton School to inaugurate the school`s Science Fair.

This biannual occasion is highly anticipated in the School`s Calendar and one in which the Grade 8 ( Form 1 ) and Grade 9 (Form 2) students get an opportunity to demonstrate their experiments to other students and their parents acquiring `hands on` Scientific knowledge.

This was further accentuated in Hon. Cristina`s opening Speech where she stressed the importance of ` learning by doing` in today`s learning environment.

As the education minister toured the fair, the students got the opportunity to explain to her the scientific projects that they had prepared for this event.

These ranged from simple but interesting experiments in Magnetism, Solar Energy, Friction and Electrolysis to complex constructions such as a scratch-built galvanometer and a water mill that generated electricity. Numerous aspects of Physics, Chemistry and Biology were included.

Each work station had a group of students explaining away with gusto and demonstrating the fine points of their work, while others set their models working or mixed various solutions with startling results.

No Science Fair would have been complete without presentations and public lectures. Students, assisted by their teachers, also prepared slide shows, interactive displays and delivered short lectures during the fair.

Other Schools were also invited to visit the Science Fair giving the students the opportunity to further demonstrate their acquired scientific skills.

“ The Science Fair is an opportunity for San Anton Students to experience science through imaginative investigations and fun activities. Such an event is typical of the San Anton ethos of putting students at the centre of the learning process.” concluded Ms Valerie Agius and Ms Marissa Galea, the students` respective Science teachers and the co-ordinators of the event.

San Anton School at L-Imselliet, is an independent, co-educational, mixed ability school, catering for the education of over 900 students aged 3 to 16 years, from Kindergarten right through to Secondary level.
