Pioneer research project

Year 8 presentation for Pioneer Research Project

This term, some of our year 8 students have taken part in the inaugural Pioneer Research Project. This optional initiative empowered students to pursue an area of personal interest, developing independent learning skills and presentation skills. The students were tasked with submitting a 2000-word essay and presenting their projects to the lower school, which they did yesterday. The quality of the presentations and research was remarkable, delving into fascinating topics such as 'Artificial intelligence: threat or opportunity', 'Is street art real art?' and 'Is the world designed for men?'. We were really impressed by the thoughtful questions from our lower school audience too. A huge well done to everyone who took part!
