The Capstone Project is an enriching activity which engages students in a personalized learning experience and provides the opportunity to demonstrate and display the academic expectations in the GHS mission statement. The students participating in the project welcome the opportunity to present their projects to the community and answer questions related to their work. Community members may attend all or a portion of the presentations. Presentations will be held on Jan. 22, 6 to 7:30 pm and January 24 from 3 to 4:30 pm.
January 22, 2019 Schedule of Presentations
6 pm Nina Bolard- DPM in Relation to the Environment
“Death is an inevitable part of being a human, but in our society we are silenced by our fear of this seemingly unknown. With a more recent movement, death is being talked about and how we can change the environment that surrounds us both socially and in relation to our earth, but the question that lies is, how can we go about these changes ?”
6:30pm Brooke Duda- Transition Process for Students with Special Needs
“I researched the transition process of high school students with intellectual disabilities, as well as their challenges and successes as adults. This presentation can be a resource for students with special needs and their parents, or a chance for others in the community to learn about something they have probably never given any thought to.”
7 pm Maria Jennings- The Ethical Debate on Gene Therapy and Editing
My capstone project is about the new, innovative technology known as Gene Therapy and Gene Editing. However this technology has pros and cons making it a very controversial topic. My capstone presentation answers the questions: What is Gene Therapy and Gene Editing? What is going on in the world right now in regards to this technology? What are the capabilities of this technology? How has this technology been misused? and how can it be misused in the future?
