Senior Project - General Information
Math and Science Academy Senior Project Overview
The Senior Project is designed to be the culmination of each student’s academic
experience at the Math and Science Academy. It is a genuine opportunity for students
to merge their various interests, passions, and curiosities with the community, the
modern workplace and their academic lives as seniors of MSA. Similarly, the project is
a vehicle for seniors to demonstrate autonomy, complexity, and awareness. An
education at the Math and Science Academy has many facets, from the basic facts of
subject matter, to critical thinking, problem solving, and attaining lifelong learning skills.
The Senior Project is a measurement of those lifelong skills that are important to
attaining a good quality of life and a desire to continue learning.
