The Junior AP Research class members have been preparing for their research projects since the beginning of the school year and are moving onto the data collection elements in their projects. Participants will be needed to help these students complete their studies and it would be greatly appreciated if you helped out. Each individual in this class has chosen their own research topic and have been on a personal journey to carry out their specific projects including reading and researching all areas of involvement revolving their subjects. Due to each class member having a different area of study, they all have their own personal data collection method as well. Below you will find a summary of each research study that needs student participation and a link to express your interest. You can participate in as many projects as you like and clicking the links does not commit you to anything. Parental consent will be required at some point throughout all studies. Please help out if you can or share to someone who might be interested. Feel free to contact the respective student researchers if you have any questions as well!

Rowan Collier: Studying how student personality correlated with student interest groups.
