In the forth grade class of Colegio Diospi Suyana, the bright minds were asked to perform their own experiment and explain their findings. The school kids had soon finished their projects, which showed their great ingenuity.
Abigail used food to create a volcanic eruption. Bruno and Omar astonished their fellow students by demonstrating the floating differences using different salt solutions. A real problem in Curahuasi is the drinking water. Luis and Cesar were inspired by this to create a natural filter that turns murky soup into crystal clear water. However, Edy’s project created the greatest attention. He had built a miniature table saw, driven by the crankshaft via a battery that even cut wood sticks.
Teacher Jaquelin beamed with pride while looking in the faces of the student inventors. Everyone had a lot of fun while learning the practical aspects of the laws of nature. The natural sciences are an enourmously important department of a school. Through experiments and research projects, students can discover for themselves how awesome God created this world.
By the way, our growing school is urgently looking for a well-trained biology, chemistry, or physics teacher who is able to use experiments and practical demonstrations to teach our young researchers. We are looking for a true pioneer, because he/she would invest several years in the classroom, developing and guiding the Peruvian colleagues. Pray someone will find and sign up with us! /C.B.
