What is the personal project?

It is a project to develop your personal interests. It is to show the skills you have developed in the MYP, through the subjects and Approaches to Learning (ATL), and to apply these skills to a topic. This project should be based on your interests and talents, resulting in a product or outcome. 

This project will have a principled action. This means you make choices that extend beyond your MYP classroom learning. This does not mean your Personal Project needs to be focused on a service for the community. But hopefully, as you complete your project, you will learn more about the importance of being socially responsible and how to take thoughtful and appropriate (principled) action in order to work towards the completion of your project.
