AP Research - STEM
This course is the culmination of the two-year AP Capstone in Science Research and Laboratory-Based Inquiry. Students will utilize the research methodologies, ethical practices and synthesis strategies acquired in the AP Seminar course to complete an individual research project. Students will also be expected to utilize data collected through laboratory experiments to support their conclusions. The students will demonstrate their proficiency in meeting the objectives of this two-year sequence by constructing a 5,000-word academic thesis paper as well as present and perform an oral defense of their research methodology. Additionally, students will have the opportunity to submit their research to various competitions and present their findings at the annual Science Research Symposium.
