This past week, students in Grade 0 through Grade 11 participated in the Science Fair, a two day celebration of Science and the Scientific Method at ISK! Students were given the opportunity present investigations, as well as view the investigations of their peers.
The first ever university tour to attend ISK was held Wednesday, March 22, 2017. Students in grades 10 and 11 had the opportunity to meet with the admissions directors from many European universities, find out more information on each school, and develop a better understanding of the application process to each university.
The following universities attended the first ever ISK University Fair:
Rotterdam School of Management, Erasmus University
University College Utrecht
University College Roosevelt
Tilburg University and University College Tilburg
Leiden University and Leiden University College
Groningen University and University College Groningen
Maastricht University and University College Maastricht
Our youngest ISK students have been investigating “Space:” What is it? Where is it? What is in it and why are we in it? These questions have inspired the children to make models of our solar system, experiment with representations of day and night and learn about astronauts and their favorite planets. A trip to the planetarium was enjoyed by all!
On October 24th, 2016 approximately 300 people attended the Grand Opening of the New Annex Celebration.
On Friday, January 13, 2017, the 6th Grade at ISK had their Egyptian Open Tomb Event. This event included a presentation of projects that involved learning all steps of proper research with note taking, paraphrasing, editing, and revision. Students made elaborate projects and dressed authentically. About 200 visitors came through the tomb with flashlights and were thrilled to enjoy such a wonderful interactive learning experience! A special thanks to Mrs. Amy Caldwell for all her hard work with this event!
