The Physical Science Research Project is a capstone experience in the Physical Sciences for the student seeking an Associate of Science Degree. In this course the student will pose a question or problem in physical sciences, design and conduct an experiment or investigation, and report the results of their experiment or investigation to an appropriate student-level publication or present their results at a student-level science conference. The course will allow the student to bring together their college course experiences in science, mathematics and communications while pursing advanced work in an area of their own interest. A departmental exam covering skills learned in the science core will be administered at the end of this course.

Prerequisite: Permission of instructor/professor
