Learning the art of Scientific thinking

"Every time we bake a cake or use a weather app to decide if an umbrella is needed we investigate our world," said Head of Science Liz Turner.

“Investigating involves creativity and learning the art of scientific thinking. This includes the skills of observing, making predictions, testing ideas and communicating,” she said.

IGS students have been practising these skills by conducting investigations and making models in class.

Year 9 students have been investigating how the particle size affects the size of a volcano.

Year 11 Chemistry students learnt how the Periodic table was created by constructing a model with mini whiteboards.

Meanwhile Year 12 Biology have been learning about Meiosis.
