Eighth grade students recently presented their research on great architectural wonders of the Gunpowder Empires: the Great Mosque of Suleiman in Istanbul from Ottoman Empire (Turkey); the Great Shah Mosque in Esfahan from the Safavid Empire (Iran); the Cathedral of St. Basil in Moscow from the Russian Empire (Russia); and the Taj Mahal in Agra from the Mughal Empire (India).
The mission of the Science Department at Columbia Grammar & Preparatory School is to help students develop the skills and knowledge to deeply explore scientific questions.
Students learn to make detailed observations, design and perform experiments, analyze data and communicate their results. They develop an understanding of basic principles of physical and life sciences and learn how data are collected, visualized and interpreted. They learn how to state a claim and provide evidence and reasoning to justify the claim. Finally, they illustrate the creative nature of scientific thought.
