In the past five years, BRS’s Science Fair has been the most anticipated and most enthusiastically attended campus activity by all students and teachers. The BRS Annual Science Fair is a demonstration of what students have learned about science. It allows our students to showcase brilliant achievements through inquiry-based projects, which, in turn, celebrates the deep-seated commitment BRS maintains for scientific innovation.
By implementing the scientific teaching approach, BRS has focused on cultivating and improving students’ scientific literacy and enhancing their innovative consciousness and scientific application skills. This teaching approach promotes the construction of various scientific disciplines for BRS to endorse, and builds an academic atmosphere for innovative scientific discovery on campus.
Many different resources and platforms are used to inspire students’ discovery and innovation in the world of science. Approaches to learning include: enhancing the school’s research-based teaching; introducing advanced resources; creating rich school-based electives courses, such as establishing BRS Maker’s Lab, Python programming, AI programming, UVA, Model car, VEX IQ robot, STEM, just to name a few. In the past year, BRS has actively responded to the State Council’s “National Scientific Literacy Action Plan” by launching on campus the “Big Hand Holds Small Hand” Scientists Enter Campus Series of Activities.
Looking back on the past five years, we at BRS are pleasantly surprised to see how well the Science Fair has developed as an effective tool for students to fully demonstrate their acquired knowledge and innate ability. Showcasing students’ brilliant achievements through inquiry-based projects, such as microbial fuel cells and simple bionic robotic arms, the Science Fair demonstrates the determination and achievements of Beijing Royal School in focusing on science education and attaching importance to Problem-based Learning and STEAM teaching.
