Group 4 Project-A community event!
On Thursday, February 2nd, IB students, parents, faculty, and many Smoky Hill community members gathered in the Lecture Center to kick off this year’s Group 4 project presentations. This annual event is the culmination of several weeks of interdisciplinary work between students in the IB Biology, Physics and Chemistry classes. The theme of this year’s Group 4 project was Our Changing World.
New this year, students produced video trailers of the projects as a teaser to their poster presentations that followed outside the Lecture Center hall. Some videos will be shown on the TV monitors during school hours. The standing room only crowd was not only entertained, but they were also informed about the issues concerning natural disasters or our environment.
Extended Essay Night
The Extended Essay is one of the culminating experiences in IB. The journey begins in the spring of the junior year and ends the fall of the senior year after over 40 hours of work. The finished project that emerges is called The Extended Essay.
On the evening of March 15, 2012, seniors, with their parents, supervisors, family and friends in attendance, will officially submit their essays to the Smoky Hill High School library for future generations to read.
The evening will begin at 7:00 p.m. with a short presentation from five to six seniors chosen for their exemplar essays followed by the formal submission of each diploma candidate’s essay to the library. A few fun surprises will conclude the evening’s events. All members of the Smoky Hill community are encouraged to attend and celebrate what these scholars have accomplished!
Reminder: All IB juniors are required to attend the ceremony. Absences must be pre-approved by Mrs. Wetmore or Mrs. Kleve.
