A capstone project is one that students work on in their classes and outside of classrooms and that enables them to demonstrate their learning about something they are personally interested in – even passionate about! A capstone project is something that students can pursue through further education, independent learning and even a career.
Capstone projects should give students opportunities to explore their interests and help them understand themselves and where they are headed after school. The project should be fun and engaging so students need to make sure the projects are manageable!
Capstone projects should help students make connections between what they are learning now and what they hope to see in their futures.
