IB students produce excellent work

Year 12 IB students produced some fabulous group work on the Collaborative Science Project last week, carrying out a range of experiments and investigations.

The Collaborative Science Project, formerly known as the Group 4 project, is a compulsory part of the IB Diploma, encouraging students to work together on an area of science which interests them.

Topics investigated this year included wood as an energy source, the best soil, wind turbines, the use of biodiesel, carbon capture and natural insulation.

Groups worked on their projects for two days before presenting their conclusions on Friday morning, followed by a prize-giving judged by staff in the Science department.

As well as challenging their minds, the Collaborative Science Project allows students to appreciate the environmental, social and ethical implications of science.

Congratulations to all involved for their work.
