The Innovation Lab Science and Social Science Research Seminar is meant to provide students the opportunity to pursue a research project related to a topic in the STEM OR social science field that is of personal interest to them. Over the course of the year, students will research a topic, design a project, carry out their projects, develop a formal research paper and poster, and communicate their findings to the community. Throughout the process, they will engage in feedback sessions with both peers and teachers. Students will ultimately use the skills they have developed throughout their 3 or 4 years in the InLab program.
The course is designed to provide students with the opportunity to: interact with practicing scientists; participate in a significant research experience; select, develop and conduct an independent research project; and develop the skills of reporting and presenting research.
