With the exception of a few students who take Mercersburg’s Advanced Program for Global Studies, all members of the senior class enroll in a Springboard senior capstone course during their 12th-grade year. The topic of each Springboard class differs, but the purpose is the same: to delve deeply into a topic, ask questions and generate knowledge, and create a polished presentation that will be evaluated by a panel of experts. Below are a few examples from the Class of 2021.
Social Media and What We Eat
Food for Thought
Ramblin’ Gamblin’ Man
Honoring Our Medal of Honor Recipients
Building a Chair
