The Webb School encourages you not to be a spectator. The Emerging Voices program urges students to find their voices. So, let’s take a hand in the game and use our voices to affect change.
Your goal in the senior research project is to identify a specific problem within a community and argue for a potential solution for that problem.
The problem must be sufficiently significant to warrant the attention of a given community. However, it should also be addressable -- at least in some small part -- in the scope of this project.
See here and here for recent examples of young people doing exactly this kind of work. Granted, the scale of these projects is probably a bit larger than we might accomplish this quarter, but they should serve as inspiration.
Be inventive and seek original solutions to real-world problems. Your ability to solve problems, big and small, will be immensely valuable at the personal, academic, and professional level. So, too, will your ability to construct effective proposals such as the one we’ll be writing this quarter.
