Senior seminar provides students with the opportunity to continue developing their individual research skills, to learn more about current topics in science and mathematics, and to use sophisticated technology which is part of the modern research setting. Students will pursue topics on an individual basis and in small groups. Students are encouraged to develop an individual research project to be presented to the Virginia Junior Academy of Science and to enter in the Intel Science Talent Search Competition or in the Central Virginia Regional Science Fair.
The first six weeks students spend on the Engineering Bridge Project. Each of the remaining 5 six week periods students spend in a Technology Laboratory or working on a Senior Research Project. Students also have the option of an Internship during the last two six week periods of the year.
