Inspiring perspectives from the Gr. 12 Projects

A Whistler Waldorf School education strives to give its graduates the tools necessary to meet their futures and to help them “learn to change the world”.

WWS Grade 12 students are practiced at relating to multiple points of view simultaneously in order to create an integrated picture of the world and their place in it and our students’ final year is a time for them to synthesize and bring everything together—reflected in their final Grade 12 project.

Last Friday, students presented their year long independent research projects on areas that uniquely intrigue each one of them, including: the differences in firearm culture between the US and Canada; an examination of social hierarchy, the physiology of breath; gender inequality within business; the transition from valuing profitability to sustainability in the building industry; and the efficiency of electromagnetic generators.

Thank you, students, for sharing your inspiring and engaging research. Your presentations demonstrate that you are well-rounded, imaginative and confident problem-solvers, with a deep sense of social responsibility.
