Fun and Reward with Senior Projects

Posted by Clendenin Stewart ’19 on May 20, 2019 1:49:17 PM

What is cooler than being able to catch a fish on a custom lure, using a custom rod that you built by hand, from scratch? If you love the water, I cannot think of anything more enjoyable and rewarding.

Putting on a Show

Posted by Kelsey Boch '19 on May 15, 2019 3:01:44 PM

When putting on a production of a musical, you typically need 2-3 months at the very minimum to make a decently sized show run smoothly. Now I want you to imagine doing one in six weeks!

Learning New Research Skills Through Senior Projects

Posted by Sophie Banas '19 on May 8, 2019 3:56:13 PM

Sophie is doing her Senior Project with Rich Arena, a graduate student at the School for Marine Science & Technology (SMAST) at UMass Dartmouth.

I have always had a love for marine science and, naturally, when I began discussing options for my Senior Projects this winter with my advisor, Mr. Cassista who is the Director of Marine Science at Tabor, he was more than ready to help with suggestions.

An Inspired Senior Project

Posted by Lauren Dawicki ’19 on Apr 30, 2019 10:47:23 AM

For my senior project, I created a fashion blog called “WCKD.” I came to this idea for a senior project during my freshman year during that year’s project presentations. Nathalie Cavallo ’16 had created a lifestyle and fashion blog for her project, and though I did not actually get to see her presentation, I could not wait to get a hold of her website and take a look.

Absolutists and Relativists

For my senior project I am studying Ancient Greek philosophy and making a short film on a philosophical concept. Before I came to this project, my initial goal was to do something that would allow me to learn more about people.

Finding my Voice as a Writer

An essay about Senior Projects

When talk of senior projects began this fall, I initially wasn’t thinking of doing one. I was enjoying my classes, and hesitant about dropping any. The scope of senior projects daunted me, and I was concerned my work would either overwhelm or disappoint me.

Senior Projects at Tabor: Video Blogging

Posted by Laura D'Amour-Belizario '17 on May 16, 2017 3:42:34 PM

Ever since I discovered Youtube and Youtubers I have been addicted to them. I would watch my favorite vloggers, beauty gurus, and comedians online habitually. I always thought they lived lives that were full of fun and adventure. For the longest time, I wanted to live exactly like them - by recording my days and adventures and making everyday an experience.

Senior Projects at Tabor: Superhero Comics

Posted by Joslyn Jenkins '17 on May 10, 2017 4:38:58 PM

When I was a little girl, I was never one who took to dolls or princesses or any stereotypical female interests. My younger brother had a superhero phase consisting of him yelling out the names of his favorite heroes in a song he would make up.

Senior Projects at Tabor: Public Speaking

Posted by Trinity Monteiro '17 on May 3, 2017 3:31:36 PM

We are about half way done with senior projects already, but it feels like I have been working on mine for an eternity. For my senior project I am working on my public speaking skills while traveling to different schools and talking to students about the importance of self-love. I have always weirdly enjoyed public speaking and have aspired to give a TED Talk in my lifetime. After meeting Alexis Jones last fall, and later Emily Greener in the spring, I was inspired to actively pursue this dream. Therefore, I took the opportunity to do so through a senior project, turning lessons I have learned over the years into the subject of my talks. I have narrowed my topic specifically to the importance of self-love, because I have found that it is the core lesson I have needed to learn so far in my lifetime.

Learning from Senior Projects

Posted by Lily Blouin '16 on May 11, 2016 2:10:55 PM

Lily Blouin is doing a Senior Project about Senior Projects. For some context about her project, read her first blog post.

During my past three years at Tabor I often heard about senior projects, however I never had a clear understanding of what actually happened during those seven weeks. Senior projects seemed almost mythical to me, you would hear about them from seniors when they first talked about them in the early spring when they were excited about dropping classes.

A Senior Project about Senior Projects

Posted by Lily Blouin '16 on Apr 12, 2016 11:25:51 AM

“Senior Projects allow seniors in good academic standing to drop classes in the last seven weeks as necessary in order to pursue a project of their own creation.” This is how Senior Projects are described on the Tabor Academy website. One week into my project and that description doesn’t feel exactly right.
