Senior Thesis Presentations 2021

Posted by Dr Patrick Egan on May 18, 2021 7:20:45 AM

The senior thesis is a capstone event for Clapham School students. As a school we feel so strongly the value of this work, that it is a graduation requirement. Numerous alumni look back at the senior thesis as the single greatest preparation for college-level work. For some, the research done on the senior thesis leads to further work at college and beyond.

 

 

The seven seniors who presented and defended their thesis this May will soon graduate and embark on the next stage of their educational journeys. We know many who wanted to attend in person or virtually weren't able to participate in the live event. Therefore, we are pleased to share all seven of the presentations below.

We are grateful to all the panelists who participated in the live thesis defenses. Even though we haven't shared the defenses in the videos above, each student rose to the challenge in this crucial exercise in defending one's ideas.

 

 

We look forward to starting the next batch of senior theses for the class of 2022!
