Senior Exhibitions
Monday, May 11, 2015 

It’s Senior Exhibition time again!  This year’s Seniors are presenting on topics as diverse as  “Psychological Impacts of Advertising” to “National Parks” and “Women in Engineering”.  For a full list of topics, please click here.

For those of you who aren’t familiar with TSA’s Senior Exhibition process, here’s a primer:

TSA students are required to complete and present two exhibitions, one in each their junior and senior years. Exhibitions prepare our students for life beyond high school by encouraging students to work independently, think creatively, synthesize information from a variety of sources, research complex topics and confidently present to an audience. In addition, exhibitions allow students to research deeply into a subject about which they are passionate.  In effect, students get to design (and subsequently teach) their own course in the topic of their choosing.

Exhibitions contain a written, visual and oral component. Assessment is based on all written material as well as the knowledge and skill demonstrated in an oral presentation. Exhibition topics are chosen by the students with guidance from the faculty. Presentations are given before an audience of faculty, peers and community members.

 Please join us in wishing our Seniors well on their exhibitions!
