Course Description

High school students are challenged to complete original and independent research that is characteristic of college-level courses.  BCPS students generate a research question, conduct a literature review, collaborate with content-area experts, develop an hypothesis, collect and analyze data, and present original research at an annual Student Independent Research Symposium.
