BC Seniors to Present at Science Research and Design Symposium
BC Seniors to Present at Science Research and Design Symposium
Twenty-seven upper schoolers will speak about their original scientific research on Saturday, April 22 and Saturday, May 6 at the sixth annual Science Research and Design Symposium. The events will be held at 152 Sterling Pl. and will start at 11 a.m. on both days.

In the highly selective, three-year Science Research and Design program, 10th-12th grade students conduct original scientific research and become experts in a field of study, writing their own essential questions and gaining a deep understanding of the dynamic, evolving nature of science. The goal of the program is for students to experience scientific research as scientists do.
