August 25, 2018 – Science Project Team Yosita (M1/12), Posila(M2/12) and Pang (M2/12) together with Storyteller Pai (M2/12) headed to Ratchaburi to embark on the last regional stage of the EP/MEP Academic Competition this year.
Participated with 8 different delegations, all winners of different zones meet in the final round of the Central and Eastern Regions. The competition resulted with rank 6 for Storytelling garnering gold medal and rank 5 in Science Project earning Silver Medal.
This concludes the EPMEP Competition 2018, well done students! You have made it this far! We are so proud of you!
Reporting back in action for M1/12. The culminating weeks of the semester is the group speaking showcase or also known as the reporting. This week featured topics for reporting are; 5 Famous scientists and 5 Famous people all over the world.
Most groups presented old time scientist who contributed huge achievement in the field of Science and Physics. Scientists presented are the following: Marie Curie, Charles Darwin, Isaac Newton, Louis Pasteur, Gregor Mendel, Blaise Pascal and others.
And famous people like Gorbachev, Mandela, Obama and others are among the faves of the groups for presentation. All reports are seemingly okay for a get back. We will have more of reporting for this next two weeks on wards. Do your best all!
M3/12 presented today different kinds of board games in English classes. The best group among all, presented their personalized board game with integration of English. That is, you throw the dice and you move your stones according to the number in the dice. Whatever color you land on corresponds to the card colors. For instance, blue means sentence construction, purple means free pass, red one means spell the word backwards and others.
Others also presented some new board games that are also entertaining and mind- boggling like the Happy Pigs Board Game. The objective of the game is that players will go shopping on the pig farm and must fatten their respective pigs and so on. The other game is known as the Killer Card Game wherein you need to catch whose player holds the killer card and so on.
Meanwhile, other groups presented the old but gold Connect 4 games, Snake and Ladder and the very popular UNO.
Science Quiz Bee: One of the observed activities of MEP students in celebration of the Science Week Celebration. And this is Year 3 of the above-mentioned MEP academic activity.
In total, we have 34 teams competing in the bee, a number higher than the previous. Each team had 3 members from M1/12, M2/12 and M3/12 respectively.
The quiz proper were composed of 4 rounds with 10 questions. All teams competed for all the rounds. Scores were then accumulated in every rounds. First three teams with the highest points were declared winners.
M2/12 experimented on different separation techniques; Magnet Attraction and D.I.Y. Water Filtration.
For filtration technique, students tried on using a simple do it yourself technique of filtering cloudy and muddy water. With the use of simple and easy to find materials; gavel, sand, pebbles, charcoal, white cloth, filter paper and re-use plastic bottles. As a result they were able to produce different color filtrates, some are very clear and others remained cloudy.
As for magnet attraction, all groups used U-magnet but of several materials used on demonstrating the technique some used mix of sand and paper clips whilst others used styrofoam balls and clips.
