2018 Senior Projects at BASIS Independent Schools

A very exciting part of the senior year experience involves Senior Projects, so we wanted to look ahead with a blog post from BASIS Independent Silicon Valley detailing the Senior Projects underway there right now. Please note the post below is republished with minor edits from BASIS Independent Silicon Valley Blog.

It is with optimism and pride that we support our seniors as they complete their final trimester as BASIS Independent Silicon Valley students. Now past the huge milestone of applying to college, our 67 seniors have so much of their education behind them, but are, in many senses, faced with one of the biggest growth experiences in their education to date: the Senior Project.

#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.

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.

BASIS.ed 2016 Senior Projects

One of my favorite things to do at performances, shows, or talks, is turn around and look at the faces in the audience.* BASIS.ed Senior Projects, dear readers, is one of those events where, when I turned around, I was greeted with nothing but smiles of serene bliss, those smiles that so uniquely capture pride, respect, excitement, and hope, those of witnessing something truly incredible.

This May, many faculty and staff members from BASIS Independent Schools had the lucky pleasure of traveling to Arizona to witness the annual Senior Project Presentations given by participating BASIS.ed graduating seniors. It was spectacular

Getting the chance to peek in on the last hurrah of BASIS.ed seniors’ educational journey was so profoundly moving - from the standpoint of witnessing the pride that our students, families, and teachers shared over this long term, deep inquiry-based project that seniors spend the last third of their year doing, but also moving in what the BASIS.ed curriculum and educational program stands for as a whole, what it is that grows and nurtures such incredible people. It was an amazing reminder of why we wake up each day excited to head to our jobs, no matter which campus, and regardless of whether we actually have graduating seniors.

Coming to work knowing that I have any small hand in developing students into the scholars we saw before us in Arizona means that I am part of something big - and I am proud of it.
