My students use their second quarter to investigate topics of interest 
and select one to feature during their second semester. Some examples are:

1. An investigation of the art and design of Maurits Escher.
2. A study of the architecture of a country of origin.
3. Structure in the construction of a musical instrument.
4. The design of a public garden.
5. Building a wishing well.
6. The design of a transportation HUB.

Each of these have been done in past years by my students.
