In this post we feature a few of our many wonderful 8th grade Capstone Projects for 2018.
Eighth Grade Capstone
Capstone: Translating Passion into Purpose
A hallmark of the middle school experience, the Eighth-Grade Capstone provides students with a yearlong, intensive opportunity to research a topic of local and global significance and ultimately present their findings to the Woodland community. Past projects have focused on immigration, agriculture and environmental dam and river restoration. The Capstone is designed to encourage students’ greater understanding of the wide-ranging impact of their subject, both in their local communities and on a global scale.
In the days leading up to graduation, eighth grade students at Woodland School in Portola Valley, CA will present their findings and solutions on issues of global significance. The evening is the culmination of a yearlong independent research project known as Capstone.
