Project DP1 - The Dilemma of Self Driving Cars

For DP1 students we have managed organized a project in cooperation with the UCG (University College Groningen) for Tuesday 30th of May and Friday 2nd of June.


This is the second time we are working together with the UCG in this way. Last year the theme was Migration. For our students, this was a great learning experience. Especially the fact that a topic is looked at from many different angles is very much in line with the IB vision of interdisciplinary thinking.
