Senior Projects Showcase Student Passions

Senior Project is a class in which students investigate an essential question of their own design concerning a topic of interest. A research paper of this personalized learning experience was their goal for the semester.  After completing the research paper, each student participated in an ‘oral defense’ of their research before a panel and their peers.  The oral defense included a presentation of their research and then a Q&A session with the advisory panel.  The assignment proved to be a good way for the students to reflect upon their research this semester and to prepare them for their product presentation next semester.
