Passion projects emerge from curiosities, hobbies, or just as a way to spend time. Passion projects are a way to go into things and discover more and more.
One of my passions is coding or working with programming languages, even when it does not look “amusing” for me, it is. This passion allows me to connect with several subjects (mathematics, science, economy, history, and more) and open my mind to learn new perspectives. Since everything sparks my curiosity, I studied Chemistry in university, as I found it interesting to connect with many areas of knowledge, in particular, with Mathematics. Thus, in the last 7 years I have dedicated my time and my studies to understanding more about such a mysterious area.
My second passion is having fun with my son and wife. Believe it or not, having fun with my son represents a challenge in terms of creativity and diversity, and sometimes I come up with math (making patterns with LEGO) to have fun.
Mathematics has always been a passion of mine; it is the way I connect everything in my life. Learning math is like the desire to eat – you can eat your fill at breakfast, but at lunch you must eat again, and again at dinner.
A passion project drives your brain to unlearn and start off again.
Studying, completing assessments, sitting the exams. Sometimes students may wonder if that is all there is to the IB Diploma Programme. This question can especially arise at the beginning of the DP, as the concept and focus of learning gradually moves away from the mostly inquiry, project-based MYP Programme.
