Ever wished you could choose what you wanted to study in school? The Project offers you the opportunity to do that. You choose one of the following project types:
- An extended dissertation (c2000-3000 words)
- Creating an artefact
- A research project/ investigation
- A performance
The Project develops skills in project management, time planning, research and referencing – essential skills for VCE and University. Each project requires you to develop a project proposal, create a project log, undertake research from a variety of sources, write up your findings and produce a short presentation of your project and it’s outcomes.
You must be self-motivated and able to work independently- the project is led and driven by you.
