Science in a second language

Three students stand next to their experiment described on a trifold poster board

Sixth- and seventh-graders at Albany International Center showed off their knowledge of the scientific method (and the English language!) on Thursday at the school’s Science Symposium.

Scientific topics like velocity and liquid absorption – just some of the subjects studied –   are challenging enough to understand and explain when you’re fluent in English. Kudos to these kiddos for tackling and describing their experiments to judges and their classmates – in a second language!

Top projects will advance to the citywide Joseph Henry Science Fair next Friday at The College of Saint Rose.

You can see a Facebook photo album from Thursday’s event. (You don't need a Facebook account to see the photos linked in the highlighted text. A window may appear that says, "To see more from Albany City Schools on Facebook, log on or create an account,” but you can dismiss it by clicking “not now.”)
