Experimental science projects for juniors

On Tuesday, February 28 2017, all UAIS juniors will participate in the Group 4 (experimental sciences) project. This collaborative project is a requirement for all juniors to complete to remain IB Full Diploma Candidates. Group work and presentations will run all day and there will be presentations for other students and any interested parents from 4:30 p.m.-6:30 p.m. that day. If you have not done so already, please mark this very important date in your calendars. If you have specific questions about that day, please feel free to contact your child’s science teacher for more specifics. 




The mission of UAIS is to engage our students and to cultivate their abilities through individualized attention and the support of our community of educators, learners, and parents.

This collaborative environment and the rigorous, comprehensive, and internationally-minded curriculum challenge the learner to grow personally and academically.

As our students develop into enlightened, globally-aware citizens, the skills and understanding that they acquire at UAIS will help them lead today and improve tomorrow.
