2021 Science Reseach & Design Symposium

2021 Science Reseach & Design Symposium

14 BC seniors will present the findings of their independent science research at this year’s virtual Science Research & Design Symposium on Tuesday, May 18, from 6:30pm-8:00pm.

In the highly selective, three-year Science Research & 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.
