In this interactive book, students from Southbank International School explore the topic of genetic engineering and its potential to shape the future of humanity for better or worse. Their inquiry is focussed on the the following lines of inquiry: the function and impact of genetic engineering and the responsibilities of government organisations.
For 40 years, Southbank International School has stood at the forefront of providing a world-class education to children and young people from London’s international community and the UK.At the heart of the school are the programmes of the International Baccalaureate. These are challenging curricula that have been carefully developed to encourage students across the world to become active, compassionate and lifelong learners who understand that other people, with their differences, can also be right.
In their final year of their primary education, all students participate in the Primary Years Programme Exhibition. The project involves students working collaboratively to conduct an in-depth inquiry into a real-life issue or problem that’s pertinent to them. Students chose to inquire into issues of global significance and used their research skills to gather information from primary and secondary sources. The groups have collated their group inquiries into this collection of interactive books to share their learning and action.
