A group of grade nine students at Hapnot Collegiate is taking part in a 20 Time Project and want to share their ideas with you. Teacher Daniel Dillon explains they have 20 students taking part and a 20 time project is an independent project where certain students get to pick what they want to learn about and they blend in what they’re learning in the curriculum to whatever they’re interested in their own lives. He says they have a variety of topics this year one about fighting childhood cancer, another one is about building a steady cam, another about the impact of screen time with teens and they also have ones about health and wanting to write a book.
Dillon adds the students get one hour once a week usually on a Friday to work on this project. Anyone in the community interested can attend the presentation Friday evening from 6 to 8 in the Hapnot Collegiate theatre.
