Desire 2 Inquire


The inquiry project (IP) is an interdisciplinary culminating project that will take place during the 2nd semester of 8th grade. Each student will choose a topic based on their interests and passions with some guidance from their teachers and/or mentors. The purpose of the IP is to allow students to do a long-term project that piques their curiosity and encourages creativity, organization, and superior depth of research and knowledge in one area. It is a great way for the students to learn about one specific area of interest from many different perspectives.
