To start off the year, you will create an alter ego superhero action figure, mini poster display, and teaser trailer. You will need to create the name of your alter ego superhero action figure, your superhero action figure's catch phrase or motto, information about your superhero action figure's secret/public identity (that would be you), what your superhero action figure comes complete with, such as tools, weapons, and vehicles, your superhero action figure's arch nemesis, and your superhero's logo.
Over the course of this first major project, each student will design and implement a quantitative research experiment that will examine one aspect of human behavior and performance. They will then write a journal article that reports the results of the experiment. This article will include the following sections; Literature Review, Methods, Results, and Discussion. As part of the results section, the students will apply a statistical tool to determine the significance of the results. Finally, the students will present their findings in the form of a poster at a research conference.
