On the 7th of February, the Subject Areas of Science, Math, and Technology (SCIMATECH) combined forces to reinforce and apply lessons learned in the classroom. The different grade levels were divided into three groups: Grades 1-4, Grades 5-8, and Grades 9-12. Each group performed the activities consecutively but simultaneously. The students performed activities which were done outside the classroom that were applications of classroom lessons.
The SCIMATECH was held with the theme, GIANTS: Guardians of the Globe. A parade of superheroes opened the said Academic celebration where the students and the faculty strutted their superhero costumes. Winners for the best costume were awarded. (List of winners are listed after the article)
The line-up of activities for the day included (1) Investigatory project presentation (Eureka) (2) Robotics (3) Science Magic (4) Documentaries on Climate Change (5) Amazing Race (Scimatech Rush), (6) E-Sigphagnayan.
Best investigatory projects of Grades 5 to 8 were presented at the Little Theatre and best researches, business plan and investigatory projects of Grades 9 to 12 were presented at the Auditorium. The IPs and researches are listed below.
