At Gresol International-American School, we have celebrated the Science Week, an opportunity for students to experiment and learn a lot.
Early Years students conducted very interesting experiments with Eva Soriano, a biologist, specialized in microbiology and the mother of Gresol student.
“Children are like sponges at that age,” says Mrs. Soriano. “My daughter is five years old, and she can sow a sample in the lab. Kids can understand everything you explain to them. That’s very important.”
Mrs. Soriano thinks that start learning science in the early years is very important: “Children are very curious. If you encourage them, they are going to ask you even more questions. That’s what science is about: the will to know more and experimenting.”
“I love coming here and seeing their surprised faces. You don’t get that in a laboratory or teaching adults. Children are amazed when they understand what they are doing and what happens. That is priceless.”
Middle School students also helped Early Years’ to conduct experiments. And in Grade 1 and Grade 2, they have launched a project in the vegetable garden, planting in plastic bottles to do a recycling project at the same time.
