IB Learner Profile Trait 3: Inquirer

In the IB, an inquirer is someone who “actively enjoy[s] learning” and “acquire[s] the skill necessary to conduct inquiry and research and show independence in learning.” Inquiry can be defined as “an act of asking for information”. Therefore, the skills necessary to ask for information and research sounds very identical to the skills necessary in the science field. The ability to form a research question (inquiry) and to carry out the experiments to answer that question (research) as very thoroughly shown in one of my lab reports written out. It shows my earnestness to try and solve a real world problem through practical research. Another definition of inquirer (also IB-based) is to “develop a natural curiosity.” This is best shown during my recent UBC Camps program where I went to the University of British Columbia because of my strong intentions of studying there in the near future, causing my self-initiative to go there and learn more about the university.

A science lab on how to best purify water.

Video evidence of my participation at UBC Camps. The group featured throughout the whole video was the one I was in. You can actually see me in shots like these:
