A Showcase of AP Research Projects

A Showcase of AP Research Projects thumbnail120567
In the High School’s AP Research course, students explore an academic topic, problem, issue or idea of their choosing and design, plan and implement a yearlong research project. Recently, the school hosted its first Research Day, where each student manned a station with a research poster and activity related to their project to help engage fellow students.

Topics ranged from developing methods to grow protein crystals, to a cost benefit analysis of NHL player salaries, to the implementation of adolescent literature into the curriculum. All teachers were invited to bring their classes throughout the day to learn and engage with their peers. In addition, several members of the district’s School-to-Community Program – who earlier in the school year provided these students with feedback on drafts of their work – attended to see and hear about the students’ finished products.
