On Thursday of Week 8, Year 7 Big Ideas culminated in an open exhibition of this term’s project ‘What’s Your Passion Project?’ Based loosely on the ‘Genius Hour’ concept, the Year 7 students had spent the term developing a project in response to a question or topic of particular interest to each of them. The project began with an investigation into each student’s interests, talents and learning style and followed a scaffolded process, ending in a public exhibition.
The range of projects on offer was vast and included everything from designs for clothing in technologically advanced materials, to using animation to combat bullying, to campaigns against animal cruelty. The students were confident and articulate in explaining their projects to out guests and it was wonderful to see them receive interactive feedback from visitors of all ages.
The Year 7 Big Ideas team heartily congratulates all the students on a wonderful effort in their final project for 2018 – we cannot wait to see what you do next year!
