Year 12 IB students have this week been working on the Group 4 Project, which is a collaborative activity where they tackle different scientific challenges.
The Group 4 Project is a compulsory part of the IB Diploma where the students work in multi-disciplinary groups before concluding with a presentation. As well as challenging their minds, the project allows them to appreciate the environmental, social and ethical implications of science.
Among the benefits are working as a team, developing communication, patience, creatively and public speaking skills, and it also counts towards their hours of practical work.
Held across three days, this year’s challenge included working out the height of the Clock Tower, building a windmill which could lift a weight, a snail challenge and building an egg parachute.
All groups were commended on their work, while the top three were presented with prizes.
Well done to all.
