A compulsory component of the IB Diploma is the completion of the Group 4 Project - a 10 hour collaborative experience for all students to work scientifically.
Year 11 students visited the Nudgee Beach Environmental Education Centre (EEC) to research and analyse the sustainability of Brisbane ecosystems. In blended subject groups, students worked under the guidance of QACI Science teachers and Nudgee Beach EEC experts and rotated through a number of data collection activities.
Nudgee Beach Environmental Education Centre staff thanked our students for taking care of this lovely stretch of Brisbane beach by collecting litter from the shores and dunes.
Experiential learning experiences like this feature through all aspects of the IB Diploma Program and enable students to deep dive into knowledge and skills development through high challenge and collaboration.
