8th Grade Projects

Every year, the 8th graders undertake a project that speaks to their passions.  They find a mentor and learn everything they can about their chosen topic.  This year’s projects were impressive in their variety. At the conclusion of their projects, the students give a talk and then stand by their poster board and answer questions.

For great photos of the students in action, please take a look at the April 29 newsletter.

Here are some photos from the project presentations.
