Congratulations to year 3 students who have completed their Senior Projects (gymnasiearbete)! This is the only course in our high school where students can choose their own topic and work in a group or individually.
When students were allowed to choose the topic of their choice within their program focus, we had many interesting topics:
Syftet med denna uppsats är att analysera anledningar till Sveriges stora internationella framgångar inom populärmusik.
Är svenskarnas förmåga att skapa trender genom sin stora andel “early adopters” en avgörande faktor bakom dagens dominans inom musikexport?
Ett rättvist system?
En statistisk granskning av den nya betygsskalans implementering
Interferon-ß in treatment of Multiple Sclerosis
Mat över – En kvantifiering och analys av matsvinnet på Viktor Rydberg Gymnasium och Samskola i Djursholm.
Potentiell förklaring till autism?
After writing their research paper, students were also tasked with presenting and defending their work during peer review. All important skills to develop before heading off to the university.
Now that the assignment is complete, we asked students what they thought about this assignment:
I learned a lot when I worked with my senior project … 97% say yes!
During my senior project, I used knowledge from many subjects . . . 90% say yes!
