The Students

At Inquiry Hub, it really is the students who define the school, and not just in organising events like iHub Open and iHub Annual. Almost everything that represents the school was created by students, including the garden, the logo, and even this website. What the students achieve is constantly inspiring everyone, from the teachers, to the District, to the province.

Here is a selection (and mind you, a very incomplete and constantly changing selection) of projects that have been student-dreamed, student-created, and student-driven.

Miró’s Retro Futurism

This artwork is part of my grade 12 IDS (Independent Directed Studies), and a lot of it will be included in my book of short stories that I plan to print by the end of this year. The art style is called retro futurism. This name came from the fact that a lot of the […]

Ben’s 3D Art

Since grade 9, I have been working on improving my skills in the area of 3D art. I am now in grade 12 and my skills have drastically improved. Most students in the school try out various different subject areas for their Inquiries and Independent Directed Studies, but I was fortunate to stumble upon something […]

Maiya and Sara’s Synchronized Swimming Routine

We chose to do our 50-hour project in Grade 10 with each other. We had the idea to choreograph and swim a synchronized (artistic) swimming duet, which is a sport we both have experience with. This inquiry was a very successful one of ours, and we are both quite proud of it. We made a […]

Geo Programs Games and Music

Geo Lee · Singularity Geo Lee on SoundCloud For my first two inquiries at iHub, I created a Tetris game, and made an AI for the game Connect 4. I had already learned how to program simple board games before coming to iHub, so I took my first Inquiry as an opportunity to take it […]

Creating an Animatic, by Agata

Around at the beginning of my last year of middle school, I started showing an interest in digital art. Since then, I’ve been practicing almost every day. Most of my inquiries are centered around art, and this one was no different. For my second inquiry of grade 9, I decided I wanted to make my […]

Dancing in Circles, by Senn

A musical by Senn Gelinas I have been composing an original musical for my last three years at Inquiry Hub. I don’t exactly know why I decided to take on such a large project, but the minute I thought of creating a show from scratch, I immediately knew I had to try. Starting in Grade […]

Rachel’s Stationery Business

For my Independent Directed Study (IDS), I decided to create a small stationery business. I have always loved art but I didn’t have much time to focus on it outside of school due to extracurriculars and homework, so I decided to incorporate it into an Inquiry. I decided to focus on making stickers and notepads. […]

Dana’s First Inquiry

For my first ever inquiry I decided to sew a skirt. I chose this particular project for a number of reasons, such as the fact that I had never tried sewing before and it seemed like something I would be interested in. So, I decided to take this opportunity to try out something new, and […]
