What is Group4 Project?
It is a collaborative activity where students from
different G4 subjects (Physics, Chemistry,
Biology) work together on a scientific topic,
allowing for concepts and perceptions from
across the disciplines to be shared.
TED Ankara College

Aims of the G4 Experimental Sciences addressed
by the project are;
 to develop and apply your information and
communication technology skills (ICT) in the study
of science, (Aim 7)
to raise your awareness of the moral, ethical,
social, economic and environmental implications of
using science and technology, (Aim 8)
to encourage an understanding of the relationships
between scientific disciplines and the overarching
nature of the scientific method. (Aim 10)

What you do during this work is;
to decide the main focus, make sure that all the
subjects are included.
to decide which practical activities you will carry
out and what equipment you will need… You should
communicate with the appropriate science
technician and teacher.
to keep communicating among yourselves… You
need to let others in your group know how your part
of the project is going!

G4 Project Stages
10 hour activity is allocated to the G4 project
which can be divided into three stages:
• Planning (2 hrs)
• Action (6 hrs)
• Evaluation (2 hrs)
TED Ankara College
6
Planning
 Since we have large group of IB students, the
subject will be selected by science teachers.
 Then, you must decide what subtitle that you will
study during G4 project. The subtitles of the three
subjects (Physics, Chemistry and Biology) must be
as related as possible.
TED Ankara College
7
Planning
 All investigations should be simple enough to be
carried out in school lab conditions.
 The activities that will be carried out must be clearly
defined before moving from the planning stage to
the action stage.
 At the experimental stage, apparatus should be
specified so that there is no delay in carrying out
the action stage.

Planning
 There are 226 IB students. 185 from
Mathematics-Science and 42 from TurkishMathematics track.
 Each group may have a different number of
students depending on the number of
students in each class.
 Only one student must be from TurkishMathematics (TM) track.
 It is your responsibility to build your groups.

Research Question
(RQ)
Clear
Sharply focused
 Should be answerable
Arguable
TED Ankara College
21
Unclear: Does concententration affect the rate
of chemical reaction?
Unfocused: What are the the factors affecting
the rate of a chemical reactions?
Too simple : How does the temperature affect
the rate of a chemical reaction?
TED Ankara College
22
Common errors made by students:
 Too broad RQs
 Unclear RQs.
 Multiple RQs.
RQ which does not lead to a systematic
investigation.
TED Ankara College
23
Some RQ
examples
TED Ankara College
24
• Assume a school selects the G4 Project to be
Energy
• Assume a group picked the subtitle
"Light energy“
TED Ankara College
25
RQ Examples: Physics
 In Physics, students are investigating “how is the
angle of deflection affects the rate of photosynthesis
of Elodea canadensis” .
 The correct form of the RQ is; “how does the angle
of light deflection affects the rate of photosynthesis
of Elodea canadensis by measuring the volume of
oxygen gas produced” .
TED Ankara College
26
RQ Examples: Chemistry
 In Chemistry, students are investigating “how does
the exposure to light affect the Vitamin C in orange
juice by determining the vitamin C content by
titrating it with iodine solution.”
 The correct form of the RQ is; “how does the time of
exposure to sunlight affect the decomposition of
Vitamin C in orange juice by determining the vitamin
C content by titrating it with iodine solution.”
TED Ankara College
27
RQ Examples: Biology
 In Biology , students are investigating “how does
light affect the rate of photosynthesis, by counting
the number of produced oxygen bubbles”
 The correct form of the RQ is; “how do different
wavelengths of light affect the rate of
photosynthesis of Elodea canadensis, by counting
the number of oxygen gas bubbles produced”
TED Ankara College
28
How can a subtitle be related with G4
subjects?
Here is an example from G4 project of previous
years:
The school topic was choosen to be
“Water.“
A group of students picked the subtitle
“Conductivity
of Water"

Reflection
At the end of the G4 Project :
 You are responsibe for preparing a reflection with
50 words
 You are expected to write your opinions about
what you obtained from this group work
 You are NOT responsible for preparing an
investigation report such as exploration or
analysis.
 You will give a copy of the reflection form to
each supervisor in the end.
TED Ankara College
31
How to prepare a POSTER?
• List all of the things that you want to say, and
put them in the order of importance.
• Remember that this is a poster to give a quick
overview of your research.
• Plan on limited text and strong images in the
poster.
TED Ankara College
32
TED Ankara College
33
Our School Subject This Year is:
GLOBAL
WARMING
TED Ankara College
34
CAUTION!
• Determine a subtitle
• Relate all your experiments
(Biology, Chemistry and
Physics experiments) to this
subtitle.
