Renewable Energy Presentations for Green Day at BIS

17 April 2015

Renewable Energy Presentations

As Green Day lunchtime was in full swing, seven groups of Year 8 students representing their respective forms gathered in the AP2 theatre ready to deliver their view on the best energy source for Vietnam. The whole of Year 8 initially took part in the research and presentation-based project in their Geography lessons and within each class a group was chosen by their peers. It was thus apt that the best presentations from each class were delivered in front of the Year group on Green Day. The presentations were all fantastic and delivered with a confidence and maturity ahead of their years. A wide range of different perspectives and approaches to the question, ‘What is the best energy source for Vietnam?’ were explored ranging from solar energy to shale gas and geothermal to hydroelectric.

The students were judged on their knowledge and understanding, persuasiveness, clarity and quality of their resources as they were during the initial round. However, for the special Green Day Event, a group of Year 12 Higher Level IB Geography students became the judges and asked some very challenging questions which had the audience, let alone the presenters, quaking in their boots. The Year 8 students delivering the presentations took most of the tough questions in their stride and all groups should be proud of their performance. A truly remarkable group of students who took the opportunity to become role-models to their peers on Green Day. As the judges deliberated into the late afternoon, eventually a winner was decided, to be announced in assembly on Friday. Well done to all of Year 8 for taking part in this project and a special congratulations to those who presented on this memorable Green Day.’
