Yesterday morning, TCIS students presented their MYP Personal Projects to the community at our annual "Personal Project Exhibition."
This showcase of work represents an important milestone for our students. It represents the culmination of nearly two years of planning, research and creation, and the reflection process. They are distinguishing features of both TCIS and IB educations that students identify areas of passion and exert themselves toward study in that area.
Students can choose from a broad range of interests. Then, they challenge themselves to learn, and apply their learning to a unique product.
There was something that stood out to us as we walked around at the many areas of interest on display. As TCIS continues to develop and advance its comprehensive STEM+Arts (STEAM) programs in K-12, we saw a growing array of projects in computer sciences, engineering, and creative digital arts. We are serious about preparing children for the future, in university and beyond, and we strongly believe that STEM+Arts is one of the foundational areas for that approach. Seeing more students both interested and well-equipped for advanced projects in these areas is encouraging.
Thank you to all parents, students, and faculty who stopped in to view and discuss the projects. And congratulations to all of our presenting students on your hard work! There was so much creativity, passion, and quality work on show!
