     Hi , Friends, A very Good Morning to all of you. May you all have a very blessed day n a gr8 weekend ahead. ..:)
     Today lemme tell you about what's happening in my son's school. My son is eight-and-a-half year old. He goes to IB World school, (International Baccalaureate) and is in Grade 3/4.(Split class). Right now they are working on Inquiry Fair Project. (Science Project). Two months ago, the school declared about this Fair, to be held on June 1st 2011. Children's were given the Outline. They had to choose their own topic.
     Now here I come in the picture with him, in the selection of the topic. After a lot of researches, discussions n debating, my son picked "Nuclear Power Plant." I was very proud of his selection, though knowing that's its a very vast subject and there is a limited time given. When he goes to school, it was my job to collect all the data, cut short things n materials , and keep it ready for him when he is back from school. Since that day till today, we make sure we sit for 2 hours working on this project. Our team work has come to end and the big day is just around the corner. The things he prepared is as such: 

1. What is Nuclear Power Plant? (about 10 mins speaking on this)
2. Kinds of energy. ( 15 mins)
3. Use of NPP.
4. How it works? with diagram, model making, illustration n some images n videos on laptop.
5. Advantages of NPP.
6. Disadvantages of NPP
7. Giving examples of Chernobyl Power Plant and the recent Fukushima Plant. Explaining a little bit of both.
8. Conclusion/Summary on NPP.
     I hope all this information is enuf. My reading habit and being regular at my local library has helped us a lot for assembling the material for this project.
     My son's confidence level on this subject is a big advantage for him. Let's hope for the best and may the best student win.   


  1. I have to admit that science fairs are something I kind of miss now that my kids are grown. Good luck to your son.

  2. Khairu,
    How enlightening this is to read what 8 year olds are working on in Science. The selection is wonderful and the presentation steps seemed to flow nicely. It is hard for me to grasp how an 8 year old can research all the information but looks like the Internet will be very helpful. You should tape it then edit to 12 minutes and upload it to youtube to help others! I think this is an incredible project! Thank you for sharing this with us!

    Warm aloha,
