This was a project that revolved around the essential question, "Where do we come from?" We attempted to answer this question through a memoir, an argumentative paper in which we argued in favor of the scientific explanation as to how things have come to be, and finally, through an original origin story that we illustrated through three different silhouette paper cuts.
November 2014 - Present (11th Grade)
For this project, we studied the effects that a mutatation can have on an Arabidopsis plant. I was assigned a plant with a mutation, and I had to create an experiment that would ultimately help me answer a research question I formulated (that somehow compared normal, "wild type" Arabidopsis plants with ones that had a mutated gene). I helped add our day by day observations to a data collection sheet in order to ensure the best results possible.
January 2014 - June 2014 (10th Grade)
The Pursuit of Happiness was an interdisciplinary project that revolved around the essential questions, "What is happiness? How do you get it? How can happiness be understood scientifically? Is happiness chemically induced?" The goal was to understand the causes/consequences of society's mental illness, and different approaches to happiness. The final project deliverables were a research paper and a classroom production on happiness.
