Through the Junior Research Fellowship program
, individuals or groups of students in grades 6-8 who have a passionate interest, are performing well in the classroom and show task commitment capabilities may pursue high-level research on a chosen topic.
Working with a consultant, each Fellow will assume the role of a first-hand inquirer —
thinking, feeling and acting like a practicing professional in a discipline. Research topics may be an extension of the curriculum in a certain class, a related topic not covered in the Middle School curriculum, or a creative, new initiative that the student has a desire to explore. The research that each Fellow conducts must lead him into a new realm of learning.
