All Science is formed necessarily of three things: the series of facts which constitute
the science; the ideas which they call forth; the words which express them. - Lavoisier
An Research Project is an option for students to undertake instead of taking a cumulative final examination for the course. It is self-directed, completed during the fourth quarter and under the supervision of a faculty member. Requirements for each project is dependent on the nature of the project proposed.
