Seventh Graders Select SCORE Projects
Seventh graders have selected topics for their SCORE projects, been matched up with mentors from our community both on and off campus, and are now off and running with their independent research.
As our independent research curriculum continues to take shape, our goal is for students is to find continuity between their projects as they hone their research skills in each division. A great example of this are Jack Lu '25 and Harry Vicic '25, whose project is colonizing Mars. Says Harry, "I did my research on Elon Musk for a fifth grade project and that got us interested in [researching the topic further]."
Each seventh-grade student is encouraged to choose a research topic that sparks a deep personal curiosity and turn it into a project that is meaningful and purposeful. One student may write paper while another student produces a podcast, and and yet another creates a photography portfolio. The possibilities of what a student chooses to do are limitless.
Please find a list of this year's unique project topics below. We can't wait to see the final project presentations at the showcase event on May 7!
