BASIS Diploma
Senior Projects

The BASIS Diploma Senior Project at BASIS Chandler is a selective program that involves an off-campus research project or internship of the students’ choosing and design. Students select a BASIS Curriculum faculty member as their advisor and work with a mentor at their selected research site. These projects may be completed anywhere in the world. At the end of the trimester, students return to campus and present an analysis of their findings to peers, staff, and parents.

BASIS Chandler is one of 15 BASIS Curriculum Schools to participate in the 2019 BASIS Diploma Senior Project Program. To view the details of a specific project, select a student below.

Senior Research Projects

Through the AP Capstone curriculum, and the AP Research project, BASIS Chandler supports its students’ nascent sense of investigation and research while fostering college-level research skills.

Building upon the strong research foundation developed in the AP Seminar course, seniors design, plan, and conduct year-long research projects, applying their knowledge to a real-world problem. Participants submit extensive literature reviews and project proposals in order to move forward with their projects.

These seniors meet strict criteria throughout the duration of their AP Research projects. Beyond submitting an initial project proposal, AP Research (the second course in the AP sequence) requires students to write a 4,000 to 5,000-word academic essay on their chosen topic, and then give a 15 to 20 minute presentation and oral defense. Additionally, over the course of the third trimester, students share blog entries summarizing successes and challenges that arose during the process of answering their research questions, allowing the community to watch the students’ research and follow their progress. Students choose to work with external consultants who provide mentorship and expertise in their respective fields.
