EDUCATION


“This interdisciplinary and collaborative work will provide students with a well-rounded experience.”


through the Research Institute, and others, that makes them so unique is that they are totally voluntary and non-assessed activi- ties which take place outside of school hours, so the intrinsic motivation required to take part has to be particularly strong on the part of the student. Tis prerequi- site ensures that students are sufficiently inspired to learn from their work and glean every ounce of information and ex- perience available to them. In this way,


self-motivated student leaders are born. If you or your student is interested in learning more about the merits of inde- pendent research projects and the valuable skill sets they create, reach out to your schools and local universities to dis- cover what opportunities are offered in your area. By providing a boost to both your student’s confidence and CV, research could change your child’s life for the better.
