Advanced Science Research and Advanced Technology students present original research projects
Posted 12/06/2017 12:32PM

Students in the Advanced Science Research and Advanced Technology Projects presented their original research projects on Tuesday, December 5 at SPA's annual Science and Technology Showcase. Advanced Science Research (ASR) and Advanced Technology Projects (ATP) are upper-level courses in which students design and implement an independent research project (full list below).

This year's Science and Technology showcase featured a poster session in which students presented their projects to showcase attendees. Next semester, ASR students (and some ATP students) will use the feedback from the showcase to prepare a professionally printed poster for the Twin Cities Science Fair and a formal report for the Junior Science and Humanities Symposium. Students in ATP will also continue work on their projects; some students plan to release their projects in the Google Play store and others will refine their work for internship and college admission portfolios.
