The Group 4 Project
Group 4 Project Information
Information about the Group 4 Project can be found on the IB zine.
The Pre-IB Design Technology course (projektowany) will introduce students to the computer, how it works, and the basics of modelling and simulation. The 3dsMax and Mudbox animation and modelling tools are introduced, and students are encouraged to experiment in creating their own 3 dimensional sculptures.
In IB 1 Design Technology, students will learn more about the 3dsMax and Mudbox tools, and will explore aspects of technology in design which have been incorporated to make some of the most widely-used and successful products in the world.
For the IB 2 Design Technology course, students will continue to follow the syllabus to attain their required SL or HL standard. They will also learn more of practical applications and innovations in the world of advanced design.
The Pre-IB Computer Science course is an extra-curricular activity. It will introduce students to the computer, how it works, and the basics of programming. An introduction to structured problem solving, and the use of tools to aid this process will be given. Students will also have an introduction to the use of languages in computing, and how to use the basic elements that will allow them to write their own programs.
In IB 1 Computer Science, students will learn how to approach problem solving in a structured way, through the use of flow-charting and pseudocode, and will be taught the use of implementation tools (in Java and Ada) to build their own solutions on the PC.
As a group, our students will also build an informative system for the Group 4 project.
For the IB 2 Computer Studies course, students will learn how to integrate software tools to engineer a structured software solution. This engineering approach to computing will help them produce simple solutions and to document and test in such a manner as to aid understanding of a delivered product by the end user. These tools and instruction in their use will meet (or exceed) syllabus requirements.
The school computer lab provides an environment where students can work on new and modern hardware (PC’s and servers), which is friendly and yet instructive.
