  • an engineering, science fair, or competition project 
  • a project for a college entrance or scholarship opportunity 
  • a project needed to build a portfolio that will help him/her in his/her career trajectory or work on building specific skills (i.e. coding programs, hardware, systems and processes).

FAQ

The applicant (9 - 12 grader) must submit a 2 to 4 page project proposal for his/her independent study course that includes the following information:
  • Goals and objectives for the independent study course

  • Content areas s/he would like to cover during this course
  • Current experience within this content area
  • Instructor preference (if applicable)
  • Anything else that is relevant to this proposal
Note: Build a Robot K12 will only accept independent study proposals where there is a good match between the content area that needs to be supported and a mentoring instructor. We want to ensure that the independent study projects are a good fit for all, so that students will have the best chance at reaching their goals and objectives. If we do not think that we are the best support for a project proposal, then we will let you know and make sure that any deposits made for the independent study program are refunded.
