International Baccalaureate Results - Cohort 2018
Green Chemistry - French Baccalauréat..
Y12 students released a cooperative video about green chemistry. Each student was responsible to realise a small part of the video explaining one of the 12 principles of the green chemistry or to organise the final video. The result is very complete and impressive! Great group effort! https://youtu.be/lecAy1yGJs4
Everything is relative - French Baccalauréat..
For the day before the holidays, the EFS Y12 went to the ANU to attend a workshop about Einstein and Relativity. They first listened to an introduction to relativity from Mr Ruvindha Lecamwasam from the Department of Quantum Science. Then, they had the chance to manipulate a Michelson to see interferences and recreate the historic experience of the measurement of light speed with the help of Andrew Papworth. And last, they manipulated some mathematical tools to understand time dilatation and length contractions and saw some simulations of what would be seen if we were traveling close to the speed of light.
It was a very instructive workshop as students were able to manipulate and understand the implications of this amazing field that is relativity.
