Subject Overview
The Research Project is designed to give students the opportunity to study an area of interest in depth. Students use their creativity and initiative, while developing the research and presentation skills they will need in further study or work.
Students will negotiate a topic of interest with their teacher. They learn and apply research processes and the knowledge and skills specific to their research topic. Whilst completing their research students record their research in a folio, produce a research outcome and an evaluation on what they have learnt.
