1) BTHS Library Summer Passion Project
With the lack of summer jobs, internships, and other opportunities in 2020, students are looking for ways to learn and expand their experiences while at home. An independent passion project (aka 20% time project) is a great way to take advantage of this time to delve into personal interests and it also shows student initiative. Projects that involve research and learning can be shared with teachers who write recommendation letters, be incorporated into college essays, and included on college applications.
The Summer Passion Project involves a student (or a group of students) developing their own project and learning about something they are passionate about, but also sharing the learning in a way that could be useful or potentially useful.
Students: Follow your own desires to learn and reach out. Mix and match what you would like to do: make games, websites, videos, Ted Talks, design, art, etc. with your interests: children, elderly, equity, politics, health, environment, science, English Language Learners, etc. The project you design must include time spent learning through books, research articles, interviews, testing, etc. Project goals and outlines are due by 7/10 and evidence of completion by 8/25 for a certificate.
