ILS 9th graders took a serious and responsible approach to their projects. On the first day of defense, the students showed their knowledge of information technology and history, making extensive use of the wide range of fascinating ideas explored in recent years with IT teacher Anton Glupak. One group of students proposed making history textbooks in the 3D format so that pupils could learn how people lived in the past, going into their homes and seeing the details of their lives, or joining them on the field of battle to see how they fought. Another group proposed creating a virtual school, where students could use a special application to find offices or other places on the school territory. A third group suggested a virtual learning game and demonstrated its effectiveness at a mental arithmetic lesson with 5th graders.
Under the guidance of ILS history teacher Olga Yarmetova, yet another group explored the influence of the Catholic Church on the life of society in the Middle Ages and collectivization in the USSR.
Maria Snitko, who teaches mathematics in the ILS IB Program, acquainted 7th graders with virtual reality, pointing out that although virtual reality exists, it cannot be touched. The discussion included the potential for effective use of virtual reality in areas such as medicine, biology, space exploration, and major sports events.
The third day of Science Week concluded with intellectual competitions among 6th grade students, where the Game Club topics were geography and biology. Section 6M2 emerged as the winner followingheated competition.
"Today we saw very interesting projects presented by our 9th graders," notes ILS Deputy Principal Marina Artemenko. "Each of the projects has strong potential, and some of them could be used in our school in the future. I am sure that each Science Week activity has given the students food for thought and new ideas."
