Senior Presentations Tuesday, March 22 - Updated Schedule

The Class of 2016 will be making their presentations to high school students and faculty during the school day on Tuesday. These presentations are open to parents, should they wish to attend.

The seniors have been working with a faculty advisor since the beginning of the year on their senior thesis/project. As part of the projects, students had to find and review 15 sources and annotate them, interview an expert on their topic, make a formal outline, and perform a thesis/project defense in front of faculty members. These presentations are the culminating activity of the projects. 

Below is the schedule. Feel free to attend whichever presentations are of the most interest to you.
