Senior project exhibitions need panelists!
We invite you to serve on the Advisory Panels that will assess the senior projects of TAF Academy’s first graduating class! At TAF Academy, students and teachers work alongside STEM professionals. Students take charge of their learning and present their work to leaders in STEM fields.
About the Senior Project
The senior project, a state graduation requirement, was designed for this year’s first graduating class with the special opportunities TAF Academy offers in mind. When students developed the driving questions that guided their research papers and their service learning work, they sought to combine personal passions with STEM disciplines so that this culminating educational experience would be a true capstone for their years at TAF Academy.
At the event, students will present projects that address topics such as effects of poverty on Hispanic youth, midwifery as the answer to the “over-medicalized” process of birth, causes of negative relationships between minorities and the medical research community, and advances in using music as therapy. Basically, these kids are going to change the world, starting now.
Role & Responsibilities
On exhibition night, four panels will be convened to each witness four to five student presentations each. Your job as a panelist will be to join other professionals to listen to students and evaluate their work.
You’ll receive an orientation at 5:30 p.m. and presentations begin promptly at 6. After your group of students has finished, you and the other panelists will use the evaluation criteria prepared by the school to evaluate each presentation you saw. You’ll be done by 9.
