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.

The Power of Listening

Have you ever wondered how children are able to learn a new language without taking any classes? No lectures, no flashcards, no textbooks, no quizzes. We all learned how to speak by simply listening to the world around us. The more we understand about human communication, the better we can foster our relationships with each other. Let's talk about language acquisition, and design a research experiment that explores the power of listening.

Art is a Necessity

COVID-19 has led to a worldwide shutdown of theatres, concerts, and events. What resulted was a surge in online streaming such as Netflix and Hulu. According to USA Today, "worldwide viewing time grew 44% in the last three months of 2020, compared with the same period a year ago." Arts and entertainment play a critical role in our lives, and its accessibility is correlated to mental health. Let's investigate the intersections of art and health, and discover the ways that art can change the world.

Bringing Your Story to Life

Storytelling has been around for thousands of years. It's an essential part of being human. In this project, let's bring your story to life, whether it be through film, theatre, song, or any other concept that you have in mind.
