Peekskill Science Research Program (PSR)

  • COURSE SUMMARY: Students in the Peekskill Science Research program pursue scientific research at the college undergraduate level for three years. The class meets every day, and students meet individually with their teacher every two weeks, the majority of the work is conducted independently. Students choose any topic they want to research, but are expected to pursue it enthusiastically and in a professional manner. Some of the work is expected to be completed during the summers following sophomore and junior years. Their work culminates in the writing of a final research paper in the fall of their senior year, when they are also required to present their work at numerous scientific competitions and symposia.

     

    Grading Practice

    Students are evaluated in the following manner:

    Each individual meets once every two weeks one on one with the teacher.  Each meeting is graded according to the student grading sheet. 

    The quarterly average is computed as follows:

    Coursework  = 80%

    Projects = 20%

     

    The final quarter is mandatory attendance at the symposium: 

    Symposium = 20% of final grade
