BSK hosts an evening of science and discovery
May 11, 2018, 3:44 pm

The British School of Kuwait (BSK) organized an evening of science and discovery for its students.

The evening began with the presentation and judging of the CREST Awards and Science Fair competition for students from year six to eight. With many excellent projects on show from a range of different scientific disciplines, the winner was announced as year eight student Arisha Saifudden, who completed an investigation into ‘The effect of pH on algal blooms’, a very relevant topic which looked at the possible effects of climate change on our oceans.

The CREST Awards at BSK go from strength to strength with twenty-five candidates enrolling this year. Many of who presented fascinating projects; from a Star Chart walk-in booth to a tea bag developed for optimum taste. CREST offers students the opportunity to undertake self-taught project-based learning and is recognized by universities around the world.

During the evening, the brand new ‘F1 in Schools’ Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) initiative, which launched at BSK only this year, was on display. The project involved groups of year seven students who collaborate to learn 3D CAD CAM Design, and build up a fully-branded, funded and marketable miniature Formula One racing team. The winning teams, Airborne, Fate of the Furious, Gannza and Mercury showcased their cars, their track-side skills, and their incredible Pit Booth displays.

The evening culminated with the annual Science and Maths team quiz, comprising five rounds of questions based upon Biology, Chemistry, Physics, Maths and topical interdisciplinary questions before students, parents, and staff retired to the Inner Courtyard to enjoy the warm evening air and refreshments.
