The Integrative Project is a course where students learn valuable interpersonal and organizational skills while combining and implementing their knowledge from other classes. Previously known as the Bialik Stock Exchange Project, it was introduced as a course in September 2013. The project requires that students in Secondary V work collaboratively to plan, build and manage a business. This year, students created businesses that sold a variety of delicious foods, as well as technology and tutoring services. All groups sell stocks to students in Secondary I-V, in order to raise the funds necessary for operating their business. After paying out the “stockholders”, the students donate all profits to charity.
Throughout the entire process, students must reflect critically on their work and meet a series of deadlines. Upon successful completion of the project, students receive two MEES approved credits. The project is one of the most highly anticipated experiences at Bialik. It not only provides a valuable learning experience, but also many memories and skills which students will carry with them long after graduation.
