Senior Projects
Tuesday, April 15 and Wednesday, 16 7-9 pm and Thursday, April 17 9-10:30 am ***Note New Time
One of the most exciting aspects of a Waldorf High School education, the Senior Project is part of a series of culminating endeavors in the four-year Waldorf experience. The year-long Senior Project provides a framework for students to express their passion for some interest they would like to develop further and are willing to work on with intensity. Frequently, these projects are hands on, such as building a boat or computer from scratch. Others are artistic, such as designing and sewing an outfit for each member of the class. Some are research-based: one previous such project resulted in measuring star clusters and publishing the results in an academic journal.  These presentations are always eye opening and are a perfect way to see Waldorf education in action. Please join us in the Assembly Room at Piening Hall and bring a friend. We ask that all high school students attend both of the evening presentations.
