Exhibiting free-style projects

THE work of a group of Scarborough students have exhibited their work to give an insight in to their studies.

Scarborough Sixth Form College held an exhibition of student’s Extended Projects.

The show featured a film of life in Scarborough comparing the perspectives of an older person and a young person.

A Face of Disability article and a project looking at Scarborough in the Mid Jurassic period was also on show.

One student, Harriet Jones, presented a social history timeline based on a Scarborian woman who is nearly 100.

It was based on the life and diaries of a woman called Mildred Walker, was more than happy to come in to Sixth Form to see the finished project for herself.

The Extended Project is equivalent to an AS level and is a project of the student’s own design allowing them to explore an area of personal interest.

It is designed to helps prepare students for university by encouraging them to manage their own learning.

The exhibition also featured a male cancer information stand, the work of a recycling dress maker, and an Irish dancing story board based on the tale of the Three Bears.
