Wilderness Orientation and Senior Project bookend the Proctor experience for students. They are incredibly different, but require many of the same traits: a sense of adventure, confidence, passion, and a willingness to disregard comfort zones for the sake of authentic learning. Enjoy this window into Senior Project 2016!
Will '16 is spending his Senior Project working on creative writing and reflected in one of his recent blog posts:
Andrew '16 is continuing a project he began in Social Entrepreneurship this fall by further refining his surf board fin manufactoring process. Andrew believes this project will evolve into a real business, and that evolution is the primary goal of his project. Check out how he builds the fins in the images below and read more about his business model here!
Carolyn '16 is studying French cooking for her Senior Project and her daily blog posts include mouth watering images of her creations. Of course, you know what happened the last time one of our students was inspired by her term in France - she started Tarte Cafe and Bakery right here in Andover (read Corinne's story here)!
Myles is putting his woodworking skills to the test as he constructs a chicken coup for his family's farm in Rhode Island. Check out the beautiful image of his shaping of rafters below and read about his journey on his blog!
Taylor '16 continues her work studying the water quality in the Proctor Pond and masterfully articulated her learning through her daily blog posts. They are definitely worth a read!
These are just six examples of the outstanding work our seniors are doing during the final three weeks of the year. We encourage you to take time to read through the blog posts of all 67 seniors on Senior Project using the link below!
