Udaan - MYP Personal Project Exhibition: 2022 Pathways World School, Gurgaon
The virtual exhibition of MYP 5 Personal Project, ‘Udaan’ held on 10th February 2022 gave students an opportunity to present and showcase their projects to the student body, teachers, and parents. MYP 5 students had been working hard during the past few months and it culminated into a product that demonstrated new insights gained as a result of the inquiry.
The exhibition was inaugurated with an encouraging note from the School Director, Ms. Sonya Ghandy Mehta, and the Middle School Principal, Ms. Monika Bajaj. The audience was shown glimpses from the last year’s event, which surely filled everyone with nostalgia.
This was followed by a few Pathways Alumni sharing their personal project journey and how they took the project forward in their lives. Subsequently, Mr. Prabhat Jain, the Founder Director, shared his views on the importance of Personal Project in giving a platform to young minds to pursue their passion, creativity, and innovations.
MYP 5 students got the opportunity to create their own goals based on their interests and passion. This allowed them to have independent inquiries, and at the same time develop and display ATL Skills and the learner’s profile attributes. Each student’s journey was unique, and they challenged themselves by taking up projects ranging from app designing to women empowerment to fashion design.
During the exhibition, teachers, parents, and students of MYP 1-5 appreciated and encouraged the presenters, asked questions, and provided their valuable feedback. The virtual exhibition was conducted in smaller groups, which ensured enough time for each member of the audience to ask questions and helped the presenters receive more detailed feedback from the audience.
Through their project, the students of MYP 5 learned the importance of working hard throughout the journey to get the desired product. The exhibition was wonderfully planned, and the projects of the presenters were beautifully showcased.
