    AP Research Intro VIDEO

    AP Research is open to students who have successfully completed AP Seminar in their Junior year. What makes this course interesting? During the year, you will be exposed to a myriad of research methods used in different fields and adapt those that will benefit your own research project. In the course you will design, plan, and conduct a year-long, research-based investigation to address a research question of interest to you. It provides the opportunity to learn and apply research methods and practices in a field that addresses a real-world topic of your choosing. While working with an expert advisor, you can explore an academic topic, problem, or issue that interests you and design, plan, and conduct a year-long research-based investigation to address it. The class is designed to be broken in three major parts. The first section is centered in choosing the topic and specific research project. In the second section you engage in the different activities associated with answering the question chosen as your research project and work towards the presentation of your investigation, results and conclusions from your research. In the last section the course culminates not in an Exam, but rather in the delivery of an academic paper of 4,000-5,000 words and a presentation, with an oral defense, during which you will answer 3-4 questions from a panel of evaluators.
