Here is the exciting research unit of our MYP 3 students!
The idea is to make the class understand the role of movements and interactions, starting from concrete observations: physics allows people to create always more extreme attractions, as they know precisely the movements and interactions involved.
The students thus understood how to describe a movement, calculate a speed, represent the forces at play during a free fall, and wondered if it was possible to be both immobile and in motion.
The students then made their own rollercoaster, to illustrate all their discoveries.
Finally, they researched how rollercoasters have evolved throughout history.
Here is one more example of how we make hands-on lessons, so that our students can be passionate about the different subjects and memorize easily the concepts covered.
