Group 4 Project Presentation


The Group 4 Project is a collaboration between subjects within the sciences. Students of physics and chemistry worked together on the chosen theme for the project: air. The final outcome of the project was to create a presentation. The audience for the presentation was kindly supplied by both classes of year 10 students. 


The projects were experimental. Students spent the first hours planning their experiment and then went to the laboratories to complete it. This is a difficult skill in itself, especially when attempting to draw two branches of science together at the same time.


The presentations themselves were fun, entertaining and interesting. All of them brought together elements from Chemistry and Physics. The chosen topics ranged from environmental concerns for the level of carbon dioxide in Earth’s atmosphere to the dangers of popping candy. In fact, the presentation concerning popping candy incited the most questions from a concerned audience of year 10 students.

The process was extremely rewarding for all involved. Once again the students gained experience with the methods of scientific research. The audience were also given an insight in what they must do next year come this time when they will have to complete their own group 4 projects.
