The culminating activity of the IB Middle Years Programme is the Personal Project. Completed during sophomore year, the Personal Project encourages each student to produce a personal and creative work by exploring a topic of their own choosing over an extended period of time. In addition to creating a product or outcome, students are expected to document the entire process from beginning to end and produce a final report.
Approximately half of our 10th-grade students participated in the fall semester Personal Project Exhibition on Friday, December 1. (The rest will have their turn next semester.) Springing as they do from students’ interests and passions, the topics and ideas on display were impressively wide ranging. Several participants shared their projects with a crew from the HHS AV Department; check them out in the video below.
