What is a capstone project?

"All students will complete a capstone project, through which students will demonstrate their knowledge, skills, and work habits by conducting in-depth research, using technological applications, producing a high-quality exhibition of learning, and presenting their research and findings to a review panel.”  Students will choose a personally meaningful topic and inquiry question to research and complete a project around. They will design a proposal, set goals, engage in academic research, do field research, develop community connections through at least one community partner, create some sort of product, build a panel, share their work, and reflect on the process.

What is the objective of a capstone project?

Students will design and carry out a personally meaningful educational endeavor through making connections with the greater community, engaging in research, reflection, and publicly sharing their experience and new learning.
