Pond, First, Wave & Leena of M2/12 wows the class with Hologram Science

Well, it’s like this! For Friday Science class each group were assigned to design and present their own experiment or science presentation about Light, Reflection. and Refraction. And of course, each group must apply and demonstrate to everyone how to do it.

And, FYI, they need to do it by their own, together with their team they need to decide, plan and do everything for their Science presentation. All they have to remember, is just apply what they learnt and understand from the Science lecture.

Let’s see what did the groups prepare for us. 6

Group 2 in their Hologram Presentation: well, every body said… wow!!! Amazing Group 2!!! On Hologram screen is the viral music video : I have a pen!!!

NMK at Science Prodigy Comptetion

Hello, my name is NINE. I’m from class M3/12. Right now, I’m going to tell you about “Genius Competition for Prodigy in Science”.

“Sillapa Competition” is a competition that give chance to schools to send their students to compete with other schools. My science competition was also in Sillapa Competition. This year’s science competitions was held in Bodindecha 1 School. My team went there to compete with the other participants.

2222

The “Genius Competition for Prodigy in Science” was be divided into 2 rounds. ‘Elimination by examination’ and ‘Verbal Questioning’.

During the ‘Elimination by examination’, the exam was based on M1 – M3 knowledge and most are critical thinking questions. It was subdivided into 2 parts, writing and multiple choice questions. It contained items from Biology, Chemistry and Physics. It was very difficult, because it needed critical thinking not just basic theoretical knowledge. But we passed this examination and we progressed to the next round.
1111
We were very happy because we advanced to the next round. Next, we must write the correct answer in the given paper which included the questions. We had 1 minute and 30 seconds for each question. After that, the proctor collected our papers and gave us a new one.
The questions were random and every team must pickup a question number, and the judge-helper will get the question paper that corresponded to the number and gave it to the competitors.

I think this part was hard but not as tough as the first round. The top two teams of this competition will have the chance to advance and compete in the Zone Level competition. But our team got the third position out of 24 teams, so we didn’t get the chance to go for the Zone Competition.

Lastly, I think I came here to gain experience. No matter win or not, the best thing that I learned and received were: experience, friendship and nobody is perfect. (Nine- Kornrawee Chanchom M3/12)

Moringa Project Splash

s__94281834

16 October 2016- Tam, Well, and Earn of M2/12 joined the Science Project competition in Thai bringing along with them the “Gold Medal Moringa Project” awarded last time during the MEP-EP Science Project Competition.

s__94281836

The Presenter’s Say:

Earn – Science Competition is very new for me and we need to compete with another school. I think it is a good chance for me to develop my skill to speak and to share smart thinking. In my opinion, our presentation was very good and everyone enjoyed my group although we made some mistakes on some questions. Actually, I want to get gold medal but it is not up to me. Anyway, we got bronze medal but it’s okay. I am proud for my team. Next year I want to battle again .And we will get gold medal!!!

s__94298142

Well- I went to Science project competition with confident and I believed we can do it. I really feel good and relax when I finished the competition. So when we  went back to school Earn, and me and may be Tam too, we slept on the car because we got up very early. Later on the evening,  Tthe result of the competition came out and we got bronze.  I felt a little bit bad about that so I told my parents and they comforted me. And I feel better, because I had fun doing it, not just on the time we treat the wound but when we presented it I feel confident and had fun. I think that is the most  important thing for me. 

s__94298134

Tam- Thai science project is very hard but this just a beginning. At least we get a bronze medal but next time we’ll try harder (I feel a little disapointed actually but we can also have mistakes sometimes, don’t we? ) The most important thing is how we learned from our experience!!!

Thank you everybody for the support and for  reading our story and we are all proud of this. 

Moringa Project Flashback

D.I.Y. Thermometer

Alright! We did learn about how to use the thermometer previously , now it is time for some action. We will try to make our Do It Yourself Thermometer. We will check if M1/12 did it or not?

First Trial Failed- takes super long for the colored water to go up. Our hot water is not hot enough to make the water inside the bottle rise up. And it takes a bit longer. W

cimg0235

Second Trial (Successful) – suddenly we decided to use the real heating pan to maintain the hot temperature. Then in just a couple of minutes we saw good results! We were so excited to see the first rise of the colored water!!!

cimg0241

One thing I realize about today’s experiment, doing or making something takes a bit of patience! First thing that you have to do is wait and next is wait and must not forget that it is about TEAMWORK.

cimg0244

And at the end of the Science day, you get to watch and learn new things. And you also earned new experience to share to your family and friends at the end of the day!

cimg0243

Therefore, we say Science is cool and fun!

Group 2 rocks “Word Boggles” today!!!

Hey, today’s Thursday and its M1/12 “Activity Day”. And did you know? Group 2 won today’s “Word Boggles”. It was such a very tough game especially between Group 1 and Group 2 (Aim. Kaohom, Nine, Tangkwa and Ranya). They won with only 1 point ahead with Group 1 (Fah, Him, Ming, Aey and Ice).

“The Score Board” 

And another thing, J and Tangkwa was really doing a very good job in the hosting! They did try their best to be an enthusiastic host masters in the class, and yeah they were very successful everybody was so happy with them. 2

What’s more! Now, speed reading is becoming a routine that everyone knows already what to do when we say speed reading.

And above all, today is such a comedy “Activity Day”. Why? While playing “Boggles, some may form words that sounds so funny…but it’s okay, the most important thing is we’ve tried. Who knows! That word might be correct. Try and try until you succeed!!! Good job everybody! Yayyyy!!!

Thermometer Part 2

We just had fun doing our first one on one experience with using the thermometer. Now here is the most important part, finishing our experiment work. Our tasks:

  1. Must not forget to draw the materials we used and the steps we did during the experiment.

    cimg0212
    This is Baitoei’s notebook. So clean and tidy!
  2. Record all our members’ body temperatures.cimg0219
  3. Must not forget to convert the recorded temperatures to degree Celsius, Fahrenheit and Kelvin.
    cimg0223
    Hey guys! I cant see very well, all I see are your heads,,,555. 

    4. And soon must not forget to get the Average Temperature of the group.

    5. And finally identify who got the highest and the lowest body temperature in the group. Once done! Get ready to give your Science Notebook to the teacher!

 

Science M1/12 get to know how to use the Thermometer

Thermometer is one of the must have’s in every household. In this case, every member in the family, young or adult, must learn how to use the thermometer. Good timing! M1/12 get the first-hand experience of using the thermometer both digital thermometer and the classic one to check their body temperature. Here are the glimpses of THERMOMETER activity in the classroom.

cimg0205
Look it’s Ming, trying to look closely on the thermometer scale. Hey Ming! Is it in degree Celsius, Fahrenheit or Kelvin? I wonder what it is?  Hmmmmm….

By the way, I know that knowing the conversion of °C, °F or °K may sound so easy but I think it is also a must to learn how to do so.

CIMG0214.JPG
Ming, demonstrating how to put the thermometer under our armpit. Its okay, Mindg is smiling because it is a little bit ticklish,,,kkk^^. 
CIMG0207.JPG
Yeah, success! Ming did it. And beside her is Ice getting ready with the cotton and alcohol ready to clean before the next one will use it! That’s one of the cleanliness thing that we have to remember!

And of course we learn how to use the old style thermometer, we also need to use the new one the digital one. Let’s see who we caught on camera using the digital thermometer.

cimg0206
Oh wow! Proud and Preaw confidently showing their digital thermometer, in fairness, they did it well. They know how to use it just click on and click off! See , very easy! 

As mentioned before, we learned not only how to use the thermometer but at the same time we also did learn how to clean it after using which is also very important. We say it is part of being HYGIENIC.See below how did we keep up the cleanliness and make sure the thermometer is sterilized.

cimg0208
Ball and Big with their big smiles while cleaning the thermometer! Say cheese!

What’s more! If you are so worried that you might not know how to use the thermometer, teachers will always be there to help you as well.

cimg0215
Look at Teacher Fah helping out Big to make sure that he is doing it right. Well done you two!
cimg0217
And here is Arm, so serious about getting more about the thermometer thing! Its okay Arm dont worry, you are so fine and healthy!

In conclusion, everybody did a good job and finally learnt how to handle the thermometer very well! Great job M1/12!  (see part 2_of thermometer article)

Best Diaries Update

This week’s Diary Topic is about “NMK School Clubs”

This is Big, he did a wonderful job with his diary for this week. While I was reading his diary, I was really happy. And I can’t helped but smile. Usually, when I read students’ diary, I don’t normally look at their names, instead, I will directly read the diary content. And let me tell you, while I was reading Big’s diary, I know exactly that this diary belongs to Big even without looking its name and I was right! Really, well-done Big! I am so happy for you! You got 5 stars from me!!!

cimg0195

Next, we have Aim and Kaohom. Aim wrote her diary with very good organization, following the “Introduction, Body and Conclusion”. It was so well-organized, same as her personality. And Kaohom wrote a flawless diary, very simple yet wonderful. Plus, I get to know about her music interests which was the bonus point for me. By the way, Aim and Kaohom are both members of Thai Musical Instrument Club. cimg0189

Ploy, Fah, Baitoei, Opal,  Roeve and Creammy( click on the picture to know their names specifically) –  did you know that the best thing that I liked about their diaries was that they were very HONEST and TRUE in expressing with their feelings on what they felt about NMK school clubs.

And what’s more, they even gave their insights on what they liked , to happen in their classes. Although they belonged to different NMK school clubs, they felt the same about their clubs and that is, they think that being in school clubs is to “Learn in a funny and relaxing environment”. Just like that!

So as a teacher, I realized something, Diary writing is awesome. Why? It makes you feel closer to your students. Diary is like your secret communication with your student. But be sure not to break your students’ trust when you say its “secret”. They maybe kids but they surely take “secrets” seriously.

I can’t wait to read next week diaries. What will next week be like? I wonder….
