Winners of NESA

From thirteen NESA schools submitting approximately 400 projects, AIS Kuwait took overall first place, first place in the category of Biology, Chemistry and Research; 2nd place in Chemistry and had 5 teams in the top 20!

Tisya Goel and Rushmeet K. Singh studied the effect of the mass of activated carbon on the concentration of impurities (iodine and chlorine) in water for their Grade 8 NESA Science Fair project. This research can help determine the best way to produce pure water from contaminated sources. Top-notch experimental design frustratingly did not yield the expected results so they inquired further through research and additional experimentation to explain their original data. Their persistence, hard work and thinking paid off as they won first place in the Champion Round of the top five NESA teams. They were also awarded first place overall, Best Researched Project and first in the category of Chemistry. Congratulations!

Razan Al Awadhi and Shaikha Boodai (7th place overall and 1st place in Biology) studied the decomposition rates of different fruits and vegetables within soil.
Amara Qabazard (6th place overall and 2nd place in Chemistry) studied the effect of temperature on the denaturation of egg white protein.
Mark Akl and Ralph Zein (9th place overall) studied the effect of wind speed on rate of cooling of a body of water covered with different pollutants.
Loulwa Al Sabah and Tala Yehia (16th place overall) studied the effect of dust on plant leaves on the rate of photosynthesis.

Thank you middle school science teachers, Wayne Isaac and Sezin Karacal. Congratulations to all!

DP Art Show

The American International School Kuwait (AIS), was proud to hold the annual Visual Arts IBO Diploma Exhibition titled “The Green Mood”, by the artist/student Anwar Al Mousawi in Grade 12. The exhibition was a highly skilled and technically accomplished display of her drawings, paintings, sculpture, film and photography. Anwar Al Mousawi worked over two years to produce a highly refined, deeply conceptual body of works. The Visual Arts Program at AIS is a highly challenging and rigorous 2 years of art study, focusing on artists of influence and a comparison of their works. The course also involves an in-depth study of a wide variety of media exploration and experimentation leading into the execution of highly sophisticated artworks for the annual exhibition. Students are encouraged by their teacher Mrs. Angie Hani, to push conventional media and mediums beyond the norm and utilize them in new and innovative ways. Students in the DP Visual Arts Course are required to focus on a concept and build upon these ideas in detail through a variety of mediums and practices to produce a body of works consisting of 11 pieces for external assessment. Mrs. Angie Hani, the High School Visual Arts Teacher at AIS, for the past 12 years says, “I encourage my students to go beyond their expectations, motivating them to create quality refined artworks with substance and meaning. The students are often involved in interviewing artists, visiting galleries, remaining aware of the context of where they live. Students are inspired by current issues in society that nurture their own in-depth detailed study of the concept of focus. My students are taught to be highly focused and manage their time to produce high quality works leading them into academic study in Kuwait or abroad”. Anwar Al Mousawi’s concept is juxtaposition, the element of two contrasting things being placed together. “The Green Mood” is an exploration of juxtaposing green moods. Green is many characters. Green is ugly. Green is a simmering jealousy, materialistic, sick and selfish. Then again it’s beauty. It is the purity of the natural world, a serine soul, young and naive. The artworks present an idea that opposes the conventional praises of beauty, perfection, happiness and time. AIS is proud of it Visual Arts Program.
