Year 7 have been learning about how living organisms are organised as one of the ten big ideas of science called Organisms. Part of this unit is about cells. These are the building block of living organisms and an important key concept in Biology. Each year, students are invited to make models of cells to further their understanding of them. This is always a popular homework task, usually resulting in all sorts of wonderful designs and tasty creations.
This year as a department, we decided to launch this as a competition. Students had to design and make a model cell using any material. They also had to label the cell. They had the choice of an animal and plant cell or any of the specialised cells that they have been studying.
The entries were most impressive with some made of balloons, wood, fabric, clay, fruit and cake, just to name a few. Judging the competition was extremely difficult due to the high standard of entries. Winners were chosen out of each science class and three overall winners chosen.
The science department would like to day a big thank you for all the entries. Here are all the class winners and the three overall winners:
1st place Unaysah P
2nd place Sania S
3rd place Hadia M
