AP Capstone Presentations Showcase Seniors' Research Projects

Exploring Diverse Topics: From Biology to Psychology and Marketing

On June 10, the senior Class of 2024 presented their AP Capstone research projects, marking a significant milestone in their academic journey. The event took place on the main campus, attracting an audience of students, family members, and staff.

The AP Capstone program, developed by the College Board, comprises two year-long Advanced Placement (AP) courses: AP Seminar and AP Research. Juniors undertake AP Seminar, while seniors engage in AP Research. The program is designed to equip students with critical skills for academic and social success beyond High School.

AP Capstone encourages independent thinking, effective writing, thorough research, collaboration, and essential skills development. During the college-level AP Research course, students design, plan, and conduct a year-long investigation on a topic of their choice.

This year’s topics highlighted the seniors' diverse interests and rigorous research efforts. Some of the notable presentations included "Ambivalent Perception: Unraveling the Influence of Linguistic Proficiency on Perceptual Reversal," "Unveiling Latent Fingerprint Development: An Analysis of Latex as an Innovative Method to Analyze Fingerprints Found on Irregular Surfaces," "Investigating Minds: Exploring the Impact of Marketing Psychology on Consumer Behavior in an International High School in Brasília," and "Unpacking Cultural Appropriation: Explaining Its Impact on African Nations' Heritage and Identity."

The presentations underscored the seniors' ability to tackle complex issues with depth and originality, showcasing their readiness for the challenges of higher education and beyond. At Nations, we prepare students for the future, allowing them to have life-learning experiences that prepare them for adult and college life.
