Year 7 and 8 Celebrate Diversity in Science with ‘A Scientist Like Me’
Year 7 and 8 responded well when asked to research a scientist or inventor with the same cultural heritage.
The budding young scientists produced reports about scientists from countries ranging from Jamaica to Syria and Afghanistan. Discovering scientists and inventors from a wide variety of fields from Astronomers, Physicists, Biologists to Peasant Inventors.
The project was part of activities recognising diversity among families attending Ark Academy in Brent.
The students were required to find out specific facts about the individual and present the information in a one-page display.
Some of the best reports are being printed for display in the science department.
