Al-Quds Bard College for Arts and Sciences organized a science day at Al-Quds University under the supervision of Amal Jaber, the Lab Coordinator at the college. AQB students, staff, and faculty participated in scientific activities alongside students from Al-Quds University.
The scientific day included a number of interactive experiments that illustrated the various ways science can be found in our everyday lives. Students demonstrated their scientific ideas in a creative and fun way in order to convey the science behind their experiments.
Amal Jaber pointed out that this activity comes as part of the college’s efforts to make extracurricular activities part of the educational process at the college. Such activities encourage students to start their own initiatives in different fields of science and help these initiatives succeed.
Jaber indicated that Al-Quds Bard offers an educational atmosphere and possibilities that help generate creativity aimed at expanding horizons and perceptions of students and stimulate critical thinking of information to encourage free scientific inquiry. This vision follows the college’s innovative method of teaching.
Many of the impressed attendees were impressed and engaged with students by asking questions about the experiments.
