Senior Project Blogs

Follow along with our amazing seniors as they coordinate the blog portion of their Senior Project. At this point in the year, these seniors have completed their Capstone and Post AP classes, and have settled into surveying and/or research depending on the specific discipline associated with their area of study. We are especially thrilled to see the final presentations in May as this is our first group of graduating seniors who have had the oportunity to participate in the Senior Project.

Blog posts are updated weekly, so be sure to keep up to date on our students' goings on as they work toward the completion of their projects.

#SeniorProjectSaturday - Nandini Sharma

In keeping with our commitment to fostering critical thinking skills, BASIS.ed incorporates interdisciplinary coursework throughout our program. We believe that teaching students to make connections across disciplines, to ask questions and seek solutions and answers across traditional disciplinary boundaries, produces creative and independent thinkers and prepares our students for life and work in the 21st century. 
1608_089_SeniorProjectSaturday_Nandini_Sharma.jpgWhile all BASIS.ed coursework includes some level of instruction in interdisciplinary thinking, the Senior Project is perhaps the most salient example of these skills at work. 

Each year, the BASIS.ed community has the pleasure of celebrating the accomplishments of our entire network of students, participating each year in the presentations of their findings. The richness of the accomplishments of the students knows no limit; we'll share with you each week the abstracts and videos for you to get to know some of our students. Meet Nandini Sharma from BASIS Phoenix and keep reading for her presentation abstract.
