Sixth Form EPQ Presentation Evening

News, Past Events, Sixth Form

"To what extent did the Social media echo chamber effect influence the outcome of the 2016 U.S. Presidential Election?"
"Microplastics and Macroplastics: which is the bigger threat to marine life?" These are just two of the questions that were posed yesterday by our sixth formers in their annual Extended Project Qualification (EPQ) Presentation Evening.

The evening gave students an opportunity to present the results of the projects they have been working on with incredible enthusiasm and dedication over the past year.

The majority of the EPQs were completed in the form of a dissertation, but several students chose to create an artefact, expressing their research creatively in the form of a painting, garment or even sculpture.

 

 

There were some striking posters on display and over the course of the evening, several students gave overviews of their projects in presentations to students, parents and teachers.

Holly Hallawell whose project looked at the threat to marine life from plastics, said,”I am studying Biology and Geography so it’s nice to link the subjects together. Obviously it’s a current topic in the news, and now I know the facts – I’ve scared myself not to use as much plastic!”

Well done to all of those involved.
