During Project TRUE, our students conduct field research, ranging from mammals to water quality, and then learn to analyze their findings. They learn that science is a process, and the final piece is communicating their learnings to an audience.
Project TRUE teams conduct field research on a variety of areas. See below for extensive list.
Project TRUE teams work together to analyze and interpret data to determine what factors explain field observations.
Project TRUE teams present findings at research conferences and to the general public.
After conducting extensive research, our student have the opportunity to convey their findings to an audience at the Bronx Zoo. Each year, zoo hosts the Bronx Science Consortium (BSC) Poster Symposium, which brings together researchers (high school – post-doc) that are conducting research affiliated with a BSC partner institutions (see below) in a varied of field such as Biology, Biomedical Science, Chemistry, Computer Science, Education, Mathematics, Physics, Psychology, and Sociology.
Past Project TRUE teams have conducted research and created posters in the following areas:
