Today I am super excited to share the first of the Genius Hour projects from students in my grade 10 integrated science class. Traditional research papers, Prezi presentations, new lyrics for old songs, PowToons and other animations, TED-style talks, Tumblr and WordPress blogs, interactive board games – these kids have made some pretty cool products that show their growth and knowledge of topics that are real and relevant to them. Here’s Urwa Veerji’s project on the use of triclosan in personal hygiene products and its social and environmental impacts. Big thanks to Urwa for volunteering to go first!
