Project ideas

Project ideas are meant to help inspire student thinking about their own project. Students are in the driver seat of their research and are free to use any or none of the ideas shared by their mentors.

How do Supreme Court justices interpret the Constitution?

In this project, we take a look at several important decisions from the past century to learn about, and consider, what are the theories by which jurists make their decisions.

Who were Socrates and Plato?

In this project, we read dialogues written by Plato as an introduction to philosophy, culminating in writing a paper on an aspect of Plato's ideas.

What is the right thing to do?

In this project, we consider the famous 'Trolley Problem' in modern ethics and examine for ourselves what we should do, and why.
