Students in our Advanced Independent Research course presented their original research at an in-house symposium on the evening of January 24, 2018. The audience included researchers, college professors, their advisors, and members of the school community. Congratulations to Anna Connelly, Hector Ortiz, Luis Peralta, and Isaac Rodriguez on a job well done!
In Advanced Independent Research, students complete original, rigorous laboratory, field, or other controlled research. Working independently, but with knowledgeable advisors, students generate a research question, conduct a primary science literature review, collaborate with content experts, develop a working hypothesis, manage a research project, and collect and mathematically analyze data. Students meet regularly with their research advisors but work independently toward their finished product. They are taught by Mr. Paul Johnson.
