Student participants in the Leonetti/O'Connell Family Honors Research Programs share the results of their real-world research
In 2007, the Leonetti/O'Connell Family Endowed Fund was established at Marlborough School to support the Honors Research in Science Program, and in 2013, the Leonetti/O'Connell Family Foundation expanded its generosity to include the Honors Research in Humanities and Social Sciences Program. These distinctive Programs provide selected juniors and seniors with the opportunity to define, design, and conduct original, "real world" research at nationally renowned facilities and institutions throughout the greater Los Angeles area, and further support the School's commitment to provide meaningful opportunities for independent thought and engagement to high-achieving, self-directed girls.
Carefully matched with professional mentors, students explore a wide range of disciplines, gain early fluency in scholarly literature, and interact with experts in their fields. Stretched far beyond any high school Advanced Placement course, students see firsthand the challenge of producing relevant, valuable research.
On Wednesday, April 29, student participants shared some of the findings from their research and celebrate their impressive accomplishments at Marlborough's annual Poster Presentation event.
