On Saturday 22 March, Nalanda Free School organized a learning trip for secondary school students to the National Science Centre in Kuala Lumpur.  The aim of the trip is to bring education beyond the boundaries of the classroom and to expose the students to science.

There were many fascinating exhibits at the Centre, and the students enjoyed seeing how science is being explained right in front of their own eyes! They also had the opportunity to do some hands-on experiments, and challenge themselves to conquer fear through the on-going ‘Science of Fear’ Festival.

Gently handling snakes and understanding them is part of the ways to conquer our fear of them.

This learning trip was indeed fun and enjoyable for both the 38 students and 6 teachers, thereby strengthening their bonds. Students expressed their gratitude and appreciation to Nalanda Free School for this wonderful learning experience which stretched their horizon of imagination, and opened their eyes to many more possibilities in life.
