Congratulations to the Lower Sixth International Baccalaureate students who recently completed their science Group 4 Project. The Group 4 Project is a collaborative and multidisciplinary activity, which encourages IB Diploma Programme (DP) science students to appreciate the environmental, social and ethical implications of science.
Specifically, the group of boys collaborated and produced work on an impressive variety of topics, which included:
- The Martian: the science behind space travel
- The science behind David Blane’s ascension
- How many nuclear bombs would it take to destroy the world?
- The dangers of scuba diving
A prize was awarded to the winning group, judged by a shrewd Year 7 audience from the Prep School, who, due to Covid restrictions, viewed the presentations over Microsoft Teams. Head of Science , Mr Beale, was very impressed with both the quality of the science and the intelligent maturity of the audience’s questions. The winning project was ‘The dangers of scuba diving’ and the contributors were Ethan Ofusu, Marcus Gurney, Deimis Sukys, Nathan Sankersingh and Orlando Williams.
All of the IB boys who completed the project (not just the winning group) will be giving presentations to The Hills Academy School on the 18 November, and to Mark Rutherford the week after – watch this space for more details on this part of the project.
