Description/Abstract

Undergraduate mentored research experiences are common across higher education institutions, but can a similar experience be successful with high school students? Participating in a two-year course sequence, AP Capstone students learn how to think critically about real-world topics and issues, plan and conduct individual academic research studies, work with adult mentors, and develop evidence-based research and an academic thesis paper. This session will provide information about this innovative program, and identify the 140 high schools delivering the program this year. Discussion and feedback is encouraged.
