Each year in 10th grade, IB students spend 6 months on a personal growth project. We went up to school to check them out.
Projects ranged from planning a fundraising run to building an electric guitar with everything in between.
writing a science fiction novel
learning how to decorate a cake
rebuilding a Gran Torino
composing a piece of music
making a laser harp
building a propane generator
training a dog
training a horse
becoming an equestrian show rider
One student built a Suessian playhouse to be auctioned for charity that garnered the local newspaper’s attention.
This was my favorite. I get the impression from the title that this student learned a lot about himself.
