Students shine when they go the extra mile

Such is the story of Michelle Shukri. Within their chemistry course, RB grade 8 students watched assigned videos on how our ideas about the structure of the atom developed historically. Starting from Greek philosophers, students learned that clues to the structure of the atom were gathered by scientists indirectly and through various experiments. Among the earliest was the ‘cathode ray tube experiment’ performed by the British physicist Joseph John Thomson in 1904 and which led to his discovery of the electron and an ensuing Nobel Prize in physics.

Michelle presented what she learned about the cathode ray tube placed on display in her home! She recounted what her father, radiologist Dr. Shukri, had patiently explained to her about its many current uses. Michelle’s initiative enriched what she and her classmates learned in chemistry
