Faculty Advisors/Steering Committee. Mr. Brian Brosnahan, Mrs. Holmberg, and Mrs. Trower. Each will have their own grade sheets. Each will be looking for different things. They will be looking at things that they find to be most important towards the learning experience. They each have a different area of focus. This is good for you; the more variety the better. They will not discuss the grades they are giving before their grades have been submitted. (i.e. they are not pointing out things they think you missed to each other. Each develop their own criteria of your project.) 

Mrs. Trower's Grading Evaluation Sheet

Panel of judges. At the end of your project you are required to present your project to a panel of judges. In the past, these have been “local” business people, employees and former employees of local universities, and other community members. A copy of the judges’ rubric will be available to you on this website. Their scores are averaged and this score becomes 20% of your grade. 
After four years of high school, the expectation is that you will have all of the skills you will need to complete and demonstrate a successful presentation.
