Science is not only a disciple of reason but also, one of romance and passion.--Hawking


After one month’s preparation, CAIS MYP1-3 students presented a wonderful Science Fair on June 27th. CAIS laboratories were filled with many different kinds of interesting experiments which included calculating gravity, making a hydromantic robot, DIY crystals, studying ants…about 25 projects in all.

627日,CAIS MYP1-3的学生经过为期1个月的准备工作,完美的向CAIS师生及家长们呈现了一场科学盛宴。探索重力加速度、制作液压机器人、自制水晶、研究蚂蚁的生活习性……CAIS实验室瞬间被各种各样丰富有趣的实验填满了。

MYP1 student Amy, who made the hydromantic robot, told us "One month ago, Rachel and I chose this topic. We didn't know it would be so difficult. Our model was broken, my hydromantic equipment was not working. But that was all in the past. When we faced the failure, we encouraged each other. Actually, behind each fluent movement that you saw was the sweat of the countless efforts. It was quite difficult, but really interesting!”


Jonathan and Michael had been observing ants for a whole month, and they patiently introduced the whole life circle and the habits of ants to PYP1 students. Most of the students never had an opportunity to observe the tiny ants so closely, they were amazed by the tunnels that the ants dug. 


Caleb and Winny were showing the bubble size affected by different concentration of cleanser essence and glycerin. By the combined action of these 2 materials, the bubble had the better tension, the super big bubble got many cheers. 


At the other side of the lab, Madhvan, who had studied gravity for the whole month, explained to all the students and parents "My conclusion is g(gravity)=9.68m/s², I didn't get the standard result: 9.8 m/s². Maybe you will say I have failed in this experiment, I also thought so before. After analyzing all the procedures, I found the 0.12m/s² error was caused by air and equipment friction. So, I knew more knowledge about friction, which really helped me to analyze the other problems. I benefited a lot.”

这 边是精彩的实验,那边有科学的分析,研究重力加速度的Madhvan同学十分诚恳的向所有人解释说:“很遗憾,我的结论是g(重力加速 度)=9.68m/s²,在本次试验中我并没得出重力加速度是9.8m/s²这个标准值,也许你们会说我的实验是失败的,一开始我也这么认为,但是后来经 过我的分析,我认为是空气中和装置内存在的微小摩擦力导致的数据不精准。所以,我又知道了另一个关于摩擦力的知识,这可以更好的帮助我分析和看待很多问题,我受益很多。”

Einstein has said, "To explore the truth is more valuable than possessing it.” Therefore, CAIS understands the difficulties that students faced when they experienced the failures, and we really hope students can gain the genuine knowledge from their failures. It is through their failures that true success is gained. The most important part is the wholeprocess of the exploration, isn't it?

爱因斯坦曾经说过:“探索真理比占有真理更为可贵。” 所以,从某种程度上来说,CAIS理解学生在探索中经历的挫折和失败,并赞赏所有在失败中获得真知的孩子们,因为对你们来说,最重要的不就是探索的过程吗?


IB guides the student in taking initiative through critical thinking, and encourages them to explore. Students will open their minds and change the world in the future. CAIS has been an IB International School for over 11 years, we trust IB, we believe that letting students to be initiative learners is better than feeding them knowledge. Guided by interests, the journey of testing the truth is always full of joy and achievements.

IB让学生处于教育的中心,鼓励孩子们用批判的眼光看待问题,并教育学生勇敢的探索、求知、尝试,进而站在更高的角度理解世界并做出改变。CAIS坚持IB教育11年,坚守在IB教育的最前线, 是因为CAIS相信,教会孩子做一名主动的学习者比灌输给他知识更加重要,以兴趣为导向,用实践获得真理,相信这整个过程一定是快乐又充满收获的。

Students, CAIS believes you have the power of changingthe world!


长 春美国国际学校于2007年6月经国家教育部批准成立,是迄今为止吉林省第一所,也是唯一一所招收3-19岁适龄学生的国际学校。现已成为国内22所同时 通过国际文凭组织大学预科项目(高中部)、中学项目(初中部)和小学项目(小学部)的国际学校之一。国际文凭组织(IBO)高中学历(DP)在全球范围内 被广泛认可,世界3,000多所大学均接受(优先录取)国际文凭(IB)学生,包括哈佛、 剑桥、耶鲁、牛津、北京大学、美国常青藤大学等知名学府。

Changchun American International School is the first and only international school for 3-19 year olds established in the Jilin Province. We are currently one of the 22 IB schools with DP, MYP and PYP accreditation in China. Final approval for the opening of CAIS was granted by the Ministry of Education in June 2007. IB Diploma is widely recognized all over the world and IB students routinely gain admission to more than 3,000 universities, including Harvard, Cambridge, Yale, Oxford, Peking University,and the American Ivy League, etc.



We welcome aged 3-19 students, and we are looking forward to your visit.
