This project is meant for 10th-12th grade Chemistry students, and (as written) covers lab topics normally beyond the means or scope of a high school course. The students research a topic and create a video to teach their peers, and then a quiz developed by the students over all the material is given. It is designed for 1 day of in-class research and planning, 11 days (2 weekends included) of out-of-class work with daily check-ins on progress, and 1 day of presentation, 13 days in total.
Objective: The students will be able to research a chemistry topic at the level of a college freshman, and will demonstrate the ability to outline, draft, and properly cite a research project.
