For Science Day 2023, Year 2 explored the theme ‘making connections’ to great Muslim physicians and surgeons from the past. We used our Chromebooks to research interesting facts about a famous Muslim scholar and surgeon called ‘Al-Zahrawi’. 


SS: He is known as the father of modern surgery. 

AD: His medical methods are still applied today in hospitals.
