“TO INFINITY AND BEYOND — TAKING THE NEXT GIANT LEAP”
SEK’s future Armstrongs, Tereshkovas and Einsteins were out in full force this week as “SEK’s Science Fair — Into Infinity and Beyond 2019” took center stage. It featured projects from some of the best and brightest young minds in our school.
The major theme of the daylong event was, “How to improve physical or social problems faced by astronauts during long term space exploration within our sun’s solar system”; in commemoration to the 50th anniversary of the Apollo 11 and the first man on the moon. Students had the opportunity to choose to focus their projects on either “The Engineering Process” or “The Scientific Method” nonetheless, the standard of student’s science projects were exceptionally high. It was amazing to see so many excited and engaged young minds enjoying science and sharing their love of this awesome subject with others.
During the event, our students not only had the opportunity to strut their brilliant minds, but also their physical endurance; characteristics that a true astronaut should have. Students and visitors participated in our “Astronaut Training Course” as well as enjoyed the awesomeness of our “Galaxy” by participating in an out of the ordinary 3D experience through our planetarium.
To experience the thrill of discovery, and the satisfaction of coming to a better understanding of what the essence of science truly is — Priceless.
