What is the project about?
At International Schools Partnership (ISP), learning is essential. As part of International Learning Opportunities (ILOS), students are offered the opportunity to connect with other ISP students from around the world.
I am an ISP Scientist is a new ILOS project launched in 2021, we invite ISP students aged 8-12 to participate in a hands-on STEM research project through citizen science, which will enable them to:
• Link what they have learned in class to real investigations.
• Develop a greater understanding of scientific methodology.
• Engage in inquiry-based learning.
• Put into practice transferable skills such as problem solving, teamwork and communication.
The theme of the project is plastic pollution and to engage ISP students with technology and learn about the extent of the plastic we use every day, we collaborated with the Ellipsis Earth team.
What have the TAE students done in this project?
I Am an ISP Scientist started in February 2022, through 45 minute sessions on Thursdays, students have learnt more about the impact of plastic on the environment.
During the sessions students have discussed about the impact of plastic on nature, especially in the oceans and proposed actions we can do to reduce the use of plastics in our daily lives.
To bring this project to a close, students will produce a poster or video related to plastic awareness.
