“Project Scïentist”Än Independent Study OLM Science Mr.Supik
You Have Spoke Each of you indicated an area of science that you want to study. Now it is time to take action! You will complete an independent study that allows you to delve deeper into a self selected area of concentration. The project will allow you an opportunity move closer toward a real Science based career. I expect your showcase of Science to be the best quality of work you have ever done. You will feel proud of yourself when this project is complete. You will choose 6 of the 14 choices for your project showcase; that’s about 1 component per week. This project is worth 6 assessment grades. There will be weekly check-ins to monitor progress. There will be in class examples of the components, but it is up to you to do the work at home. The project due date process begins on May 23rd for an “A”. You will not be able to do all 6 components if you wait until the last week. The projects will be filmed and compiled on DVD as part of the 1st annual Science Independent Study Showcase. Each year OLM alumni will come back to view and recall their fond Science memories.
