High School Featured Work
During our Mini-Mester, a two week break from academic classes in which students dive into independent study and immersive collaborative projects, high school students worked in four teams to produce four unique films inspired by “The greatness of a society is measured by how it treats its most vulnerable members.”
Each year at Odyssey, students spend time studying a topic of their choice in an independent study.
High school students expand this study into a semester long endeavor, sometimes collaborating, sometimes working independently – always diving deep into their studies.
In the Fall Semester of 2015, students studied topics ranging between Therapeutic Video Games, Film, Futurology, The Science of Multi-Lingualism, Obstetrics, and Three Movements: Dadaism, Surrealism, and Pop Art.
Each project includes an extensive research paper, a community-wide presentation, and a creative prototype. Please enjoy the prototype below, created by senior Rachel Appleton during her study of Appalachian music.
