AC Students Presenting at Science Writing and Research Symposium April 28th

Posted on April 28th, 2017 by Allendale Columbia School
AC students are presenting their research at the Science Writing and Research class’s research symposium on Friday, April 28th, 2017, and the event is open to the public. This is the culminating event for 3+ quarters of work. This class is a “post-AP” class that is all about students conducting their own independent, original research. They have:
  • formulated their own research questions
  • identified and recruited an expert advisor from AC or the community at large
  • researched current understanding and background on their topics
  • written a research proposal in which they designed their own experiments to test their hypotheses
  • conducted their research
  • performed their own statistical analyses to draw conclusions on their hypotheses.
  • written up their findings in the style of a peer-reviewed scientific journal (still in progress!)
  • created, revised, and refined the presentations
If you have the time Friday, the students would love to see you. Presentations will be taking place in rooms 101 and 105 of the Wegmans School of Nursing at SJFC. The schedule and a map are below.
