Secondary students at Century Park Campus enjoyed a series of exciting lessons outside the classroom last week as they participated in the third annual Science and Mathematics Rush.
The yearly, competitive event strategically challenged students’ problem-solving capabilities while encouraging teamwork, as teams raced to complete various tasks. Organised by the Secondary Science and Math departments, the activity was designed to fit into the Secondary curriculum, with varying levels of difficulty for different age groups.
Mr Neil Hudson, Head of Science at YCIS Century Park Campus, originally brought the programme to campus. He says “The aim of the event is to raise awareness of the practical applications of science and mathematics in a unique way. By experiencing these subjects in a collaborative and game-like environment, our students see the subjects in a new light. They are always very excited to participate."
The day’s programme included mathematical puzzles, mind boggling problems, physics games, and Greek letter translations. By presenting science and math challenges in a stimulating and interactive manner, students enjoyed the experience of learning and solving complex problems with their teammates in a very fun way!
