Grade 11 Group 4 Project

Last Wednesday and Thursday, our Grade 11 students were engaged in their Group 4 Projects. The group 4 project is a collaborative activity where students from different group 4 subjects work together on a scientific or technological topic, allowing for concepts and perceptions from across the disciplines to be shared in line with aim 10—that is, to “develop an understanding of the relationships between scientific disciplines and their influence on other areas of knowledge.” The group 4 project allows students to appreciate the environmental, social and ethical implications of science and technology. It may also allow them to understand the limitations of scientific study. The choice of scientific or technological topic is open but the project should clearly address aims 7, 8 and 10 of the group 4 subject guides. Ideally, the project should involve students collaborating with those from other group 4 subjects at all stages. To this end, it is not necessary for the topic chosen to have clearly identifiable separate subject components. The project must be based on science or its applications. The project may have a hands-on practical action phase or one involving purely theoretical aspects. The emphasis is on inter­disciplinary cooperation, and the processes involved in scientific investigation, rather than the products of such investigations.
