Research Study Community Service Opportunities

Carldenis Raymond, Reporter

“The research projects (each student is doing their own) are being done because that is what AP Research is!  The Capstone program, which is a two-year commitment, is made up of year one, which is AP Seminar, and year two, AP Research.  In AP Seminar, students learn the foundational skills and practice doing research based on other people’s studies.  In year two, AP Research, students carry out THEIR OWN study of choice.  It is a very unique and beneficial program that teaches students practical skills necessary for conducting research.  Many people in higher education (those teaching at colleges and universities) have observed that most students are severely lacking in their ability to conduct research.
So based on the research, the students are conducting, they need participants to help them collect their data.”
