Science Matters 2019
“Foundations of Scientific Marvels”
Burhani Serendib School recently organized a science exhibition which was held during a span of four days, starting from the 11th of January and concluding on the 14th of January 2019.
This phenomenal exhibition showcased exceptional scientific skills shown through models and other visually pleasing caricatures crafted by both the junior and the senior school who had worked untiringly to craft their pieces of scientific art to perfection. The junior school portrayed various scientific concepts such as sound, sight and even the simple push and pull. The models presented were made entirely by them and great artistry was shown in each model displayed.
Furthermore, the students from Form 1 to Upper 6 had been divided into four groups each of which exhibited on a major topic in Science, starting from the smallest particle of the Universe: The Atom and ending on The Universe itself. The exhibition commenced with the classes of Form 4 and Form 5 explaining the tiniest known particle: “The Atom” while the classes of Form 2 and Form 3 indulged in the details of “Water” and its uses. Meanwhile, the class of Form 1 explored “The Cell” and educated the crowd on a typical human cell and the importance of its structure. Lastly, the class of Lower 6 delved deep into the massive “Universe” and its characteristics. We are proud to say that all our students did a marvellous job in presenting their respective topics and earned excellent comments from the viewers that poured in throughout the four days.
The center piece of the science exhibition was made by the very skilled Young Creatives Club of Burhani Serendib School who presented a fusion of precision and creativity through their structure of an atom which instead of its components held planet earth in the center with celestial objects surrounding it. This center piece indeed added highlight into the exhibition while wowing the audience at the same time.
The exhibition was a huge success as over 1400 people visited and viewed the students’ work. A few schools, such as Gateway College, Amal International, Stafford International and Harcourts International School visited our exhibition and commented on it saying that this was a great learning experience for them. A few important dignitaries, such as the Ambassador of France to Sri Lanka, Sir Robichon Christine, and his wife graced the event and praised it whole heartedly. Moreover, we are proud to say that Shz. Idrees Bhaisaheb Badruddin Saheb (DM) along with Jawharatul Majd Bhensaheba graced the event and took time in exploring what the students showcased. Indeed they too left us with praise and gave us the opportunity to record the entire exhibition to be shown world wide.
Burhani Serendib School has achieved a great milestone with the execution of this brilliant exhibition and hopes to do such astounding projects in the future as well.
We are thankful to our sponsors, Pearson Education, Alston publication and Media Partner Morning Newspaper for their extended support to make this event a reality and success.
