Trinity eyes on science


Share post:

THE QUALITY OF PROJECTS on display at the annual Trinity Academy science fair Thursday was testament to the hard work and hours of preparation that went into the displays.
Assistant principal Patricia Crichlow said the event was intended to give students of the Tudor Bridge, St Michael school the opportunity to explore areas of science not covered in the curriculum and also to show that science was an exciting and relevant area in which they could have a career.
This year the fair focused on the Three Rs: Reduce, Reuse and Recycle, so as to tie in with the school’s involvement in a recycling programme.
Research was a critical element of the projects that were to be completed in eight weeks.  
“When the students get exposed to research like this, it sets a good foundation and opens up their mind to the right way of thinking, preparing them for the type of work they would be exposed to in the secondary school setting,” Crichlow explained.
She described the response to the project as “fantastic”, noting that parents had been very supportive of their children in the effort to get the research and projects completed on time. (LK)
