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.

Family History Project

Get ready to dust off those old family photo albums or crack open your grandma's diary. In this project we delve into history -- through the lens of your family's stories. Through oral history (interviews) and examining objects of sentimental value, we will research how your family has changed the course of history and vice-versa.

Digital Museum

Is there something you totally geek out about? Together, we will research and curate a digital exhibit to showcase your niche expertise. This project culminates in a "gallery opening" where you will write a talk and invite friends to come explore your latest work.
