One of the last hurdles a Block Island School student will jump over is the Senior Project, and it’s a long jump. The Senior Project is a graduation requirement in most Rhode Island public schools. (In about 2007, schools could choose two graduation requirements out of three as required by the Rhode Island Department of Education.)The projects can take months to complete and involve students picking a topic that they then explore in depth with the help of a mentor. It involves research, writing a paper, doing a project and then presenting it all to the public. On Tuesday, May 10, the seniors did just that.
