Science Grade 8

Science is everywhere. A student rides to school on a bus, and in that instance alone, there are many examples of technology based on the scientific method. The school bus is a product of many areas of science and technology, including mechanical engineering and innovation. The systems of roads, lights, sidewalks and other infrastructure are carefully designed by civil engineers and planners. The smartphone in the student’s hand is a miracle of modern computer engineering.

Outside the window, trees turn sunlight into stored energy and create the oxygen we need to survive. Whether “natural” or human-derived, every aspect of a student’s life is filled with science — from their own internal biology to the flat-screen TV in the living room.

Science education is one of the most important subjects in school due to its relevance to students’ lives and the universally applicable problem-solving and critical thinking skills it uses and develops. These are lifelong skills that allow students to generate ideas, weigh decisions intelligently and even understand the evidence behind public policy-making. Teaching technological literacy, critical thinking and problem-solving through science education gives students the skills and knowledge they need to succeed in school and beyond.

Here, children can opt for the Science course along with the other subjects. This course is spread over all the grades in our school and advances along the following areas.

Hello, I am Sarah Scott (Sarah.scott.gr8@auksun.com ). I am a virtual Grade 8’s Class Teacher. I teach Computers. I'm a bit of a "nutter" - which makes learning from me very very exciting! I wish to only teach you REAL and VIRTUAL LIFE, things that are useful, and that we use TODAY - no outdated old school textbooks. You need to know how to survive in this fast-talking, hustle of a Computerised world! I am experienced in developing curriculum as well as conducting e-teach training and parenting programs. I like to introduce concepts into the curriculum related to life and IT skills. I enjoy teaching online and that encourages creative expression. My ambition of wanting to become an e-teacher originates from my own educational experience. Being brought up in both Japan and Sweden: private school in Japan, public and ballet school in Sweden, followed by online education from Japan, I experienced new places, cultures and learning opportunities wherever my family moved. “learning and evaluation situations can take place just about anywhere, we just need to seize the moment.”
