Research and Investigation (L)

This course is designed for the student interested in pursuing a career in science or medicine. It focuses on methods and techniques used in institutional research settings. Students are exposed to technology, research techniques, critical thinking activities, and scientific ethics. A major part of the second semester is dedicated to forensic investigations. The major focus of the course is an independent student research project, which includes data searching, statistical analyses, grant applications, technical writing skills, formal presentations, and contact with university or institution professional researchers. To facilitate research, students have the opportunity to work with mentors during the class hour. Students are required to enter their research in the various scientific competitions that occur throughout the state. Independent, out-of-school time commitments will be involved. This course may be repeated for credit.
