7月13日上午,大连王府高中国际部首届科学节汇报展演在学校多功能厅圆满落幕。参展作品涵盖多个学科,与社会生活息息相关,体现了学生们扎实的学科基础,对生活的细心观察和认真思考。此次科学节活动由科学组发起,学科组长Mr.Hamill先生作为总负责人。为帮助学生们完成项目,科学组的老师们认真筹备撰写了《科学展手册》,成立了课外俱乐部,每周五下午固定召开学术会议。在举办科学节的同时,英语组还开设了学术写作课程作为此项活动的补充,帮助学生提升英语实际运用能力——阅读和撰写英语学术论文。随着项目的进展,导师们持续不断地提供学术和英语的双向支持。

大连王府高中国际部不仅重视学生的学术成绩,更加关注培养学生的综合素养,帮助学生提早适应大学的学习方式。科学节是以学生兴趣为导向,以培养学生科研能力为目标,融合科学探究、人工智能等多种形式;通过学生自主选题,团队合作,在一个学期内完成课题立项、调研信息、设计方案,实践探究和作品展示。学生们通过此次活动,大大提升了跨学科学习能力;不同阶段的研究工作帮助学生们提高逻辑思维能力,数据分析处理能力,英语演讲能力等。完成剑桥全球统考,英语演讲大赛等多种多样的学术活动或课外活动的同时,丰富多彩的经历充分历练了王府学子的时间管理能力,而这是孩子们今后就读海外大学最重要的技能之一。

本次参展作品的研究过程中以学生为主体,指导老师在学生科研能力、创作方法上加以辅助和引导。不仅充分激发了同学们分析问题和解决问题的能力,还锻炼了大家的动手实践与协作能力,培养了创新意识和科学精神。在作品展出环节上,每组同学将自己组的成果进行展示,并与参观的师生们讲解和交流。

 

01 PART 一等奖

无人超市售货系统

Efficiencycomparison of using AI to manage a stock control system versus stock countmethod employed in traditional commercial outlets.

设计构思:

在学校举办的科学节中,我们设计了一个无人超市售货系统。但是由于这个项目过于复杂,我们在现阶段只做了系统后台的数据分析部分。首先,利用程序构造出可供使用的数据集。接着,把所有的商品分类放到五个货架上,并根据利润替换货品。我们还创造出了计算商品前景的公式。在此基础上,利用PED等经济知识计算出每个商品利润最大时的销售额及销售数量,并在已有的分析结果基础上,利用经济学和数学结合的公式,算出每个商品的最佳售价和下一阶段进货的最佳库存数量。利用这个系统,商家可以通过调控价格达到收益最大化,也可以提高库存的利用率,降低数据分析的人工费等等。除此之外,我们所创造的智能超市会利用图像识别来分辨客户所选的商品,因此在结账时就不需要扫描商品条形码了。未来,我们还会不断优化此系统,努力创造出属于可落地使用的智能零售系统。

 

02 PART 二等奖

探究卫生间遮帘的生物负担

设计构思:

作为学习生物的学生,我们把目光聚焦到了细菌上,在Mr.Hamill先生的帮助下选择了一个十分有趣的课题——“探究卫生间遮帘的生物负担”。通俗来说,就是探究卫生间遮帘细菌数量及生长位置。通过制作模具,收集、培养细菌,计算数据,设计步骤,最后得出结论。关于未来进一步的实验,我们想在各种各样的织物中找出一种最适用于卫生间遮挡且细菌最不易滋生的产品,并应用到实际生活。

通过这次活动,我们也把“细菌无处不在,洗手成为习惯”的理念分享给了同学们,号召同学们关注个人卫生。本次项目学习我们收获颇丰,懂得了科学实验需要坚持不懈,深刻理解了团队合作的重要性。对我们来说,参加科学节是非常棒的决定!

 

扇叶数量对于能量转化输出功率的影响

设计构思:

在这学期科学节的活动中,我们感触很多。对于我们而言,这是一次全方位的锻炼。我们非常珍惜这次经历。我们在准备阶段几乎一整天都呆在活动教室——一遍遍反复修改报告,精心设计展示板,用心对待每一个环节。虽然对于高一的我们来说,这次已经取得了不错的成绩,但我们还是发现自己有很多欠缺,特别是展示前的同学问答环节。虽然大部分问题我们都能一一回答,但有些问题还是难住了我们。一名同学所提到的计算公式是我们所没有想到的,也没有进行深入研究。赛事已过,最重要的莫过于从过往汲取经验与启发,并不断学习新知识来提升自己的能力,充实自己。

 

03PART 三等奖

研究英语词汇量和雅思阅读成绩的关系

Impact of vocabulary size on Chinese high schoolstudents as a predictor of IELTS score.

设计构思:

在这几个月的科学节中,我们对雅思阅读分数和英语词汇量之间的关系展开了研究。通过收集高一、高二学生过去雅思阅读考试成绩以及网络词汇量的数据,我们运用统计学卡方检验原理检测出了两者之间存在的联系,并画出趋势散点图。由此发现大于7000的词汇量才是严重影响阅读成绩的因素。

通过这次活动,我们不仅得出了本次课题的结论,同时还积累了做学术研究的经验,写学术论文,做学术展示的技巧。

 

饮食习惯与年龄之间的关系变化

An analysis of body satisfaction, self-esteem andregular eating habits.

设计构思:

我们以调查问卷的形式调查了大连王府高级中学内部73名师生、部分校外家长和朋友们。调查问卷的问题主要是关于人们的年龄、饮食习惯、对自己身材的看法、身材管理、对当今社会现象的看法五大方面的问题。我们对不同年龄的人进行了分组,分别分析了这五组数据。

 

在这次调研中我们学会了如何更加高效地进行长期团队合作,在写论文、做调查、绘制海报、整理资料等方面都取得了不小的进步,为未来出国留学的学习生活做了不少的铺垫和练习。

为鼓励学生积极参与科技节,并对同学们的成果给予肯定,学校准备了丰厚的奖品,并进行了隆重的颁奖仪式。国际部张云魁校长致总结发言,他高度赞扬了同学们的精彩汇报。他骄傲于同学们在进行项目学习的过程中,所展现出的过硬的学术分析能力和流利的英语演讲能力,并赞许同学们已具备海外大学大三、大四学生的科研能力,鼓励同学们积极参与学校的各项活动,抓住一切机会充分锻炼自己的综合能力。

 

From John Hamill

 

DRS’s Science Fairprogramme is an excellent opportunity for students to choose an area ofinterest, conduct in-depth research and demonstrate problem solving,decision-making, and independent learning skills. It contributes to the strongacademic program of challenging courses and practical experiences on offer atDRS and prepares students for the next step when pursuing further education.This experience fosters students as active learners, and develops capabilitiesnot conventionally taught such as the ability to work independently. It alsoengages students in complex, challenging tasks allowing integration of learning,generation of knowledge, reflection and creation of a final product reflecting21st century global demands required of all students.

 

Science Fair can be broken down into 3 main stages: aliterature review and scientific report, a project display board and finally anoral presentation with follow up questions. To assist students with these taskswe prepared a ‘Science Fair Manual’ and set up an extra-curricular club thatmeets each Friday afternoon. The first few meetings of club focused on theacademic style expected. Science Fair has high standards in terms of content,structure, formatting and referencing. Students must follow the standardscientific process to design their project, collect data, conclude results, andanalyse validity in order to identify error and suggest improvements.

 

Concurrent with Science Fair, the English Departmenthas developed an academic writing course which complements the programme toassist students in the reading of academic papers, as well as eliciting keyinformation pertinent to their chosen topic. Of course, club tutors have beenthere to provide ongoing English and scientific support as the projectsprogressed.

 

In order to further develop not only the validity oftheir research, but also students’ abilities to make connections, all groupshave been encouraged to make industry contacts to discuss their project andgain advice from professionals. One group made video conference calls withAmazon Web Services in Sydney, Australia where they were able to be pointed inthe right direction on some issues as well as receive several useful resourcesfor their project. Another group contacted a gut microbiome testing laboratoryin Shanghai to help inform their initial background research.

 

Some of the working titles for this year’s ScienceFair included:

  • Efficiency comparison of using AI to manage a stock controlsystem versus stock count method employed in traditional commercial outlets.
  • An analysis of body satisfaction, self-esteem and regulareating habits.
  • Impact of vocabulary size on Chinese high school students asa predictor of IELTS score.
  • An investigation into the bioburden load found on publicbathroom curtains.
  • Effect of blade number on the power output of a windmillgenerator.
  • Influence of camera pixel density on tracking quality of amotion capture programme.

 

On Tuesday morning Science Fair students prepared forthe culmination of all their hard work. Reports were printed and bound, displayboards were finalised and displayed along-side supporting apparatus andquestionnaires. Then, all students and teachers were invited to an ‘Open House’where they had the opportunity to mingle with the teams and discuss theirresearch and findings.

 

Following the Open House, each team presented theirresearch in the Lecture Hall. All the teams preformed eloquent and professionalpitches of their projects and displayed their critical thinking abilities byevaluating their research to identify errors in their methodologies, areas forimprovement and recommendations as to why and how their work is important. Theyalso faced grilling questions from the panel of Judges.

 

In summary, I am extremely proud of the effort andhard work all students in the Science Fair group have put in over the previoussix months to get to this point. I can safely say that everyone in attendanceof the presentations were suitably impressed with the results and I lookforward to leading the team next year and to continue to improve the standards.I hope to see some teams return to further develop their research. Well doneeveryone!
