This Week in 5C

by sanjaylalwani on February 27, 2015

After four weeks of planning, researching and building, students presented their final My Time projects to their classmates on Friday. Our goal for this project was not simply to present a final product, but to demonstrate an understanding of a new skill and to explain the process of proposal writing, goal-setting, using a variety of sources for research and presentation skills. I have to say that I was absolutely blown away at the creativity and hard work that went into so many of these projects! We had inquiries into knitting, 3-D modelling, cooking, wiring and robotics, origami, stand-up comedy and animation, just to name a few. After presentations, 5C paid a visit to the MYP Personal Projects exhibition currently being displayed in the library, where they could ask grade 10 students about their version of My Time (albeit on a slightly larger scale!).
