The Independent Research Project (IRP) is an opportunity for students in Grade 9-12 to undertake a scientific investigation of their own design. The ultimate goal is to help students further develop science literacy.
Each young researcher, with the guidance of senior research mentors at 7EDU, will learn firsthand the process of designing and implementing an original scientific investigation, from beginning to end. Students will examine scientific writing and come to understand the peer review process. They will become versed in statistical analysis methods and discover the role of uncertainty in the reporting of results.
