Independent Research Projects

Many school and college students are now involved in Independent Research Projects (IRP) as part of their educational programme and many hope to carry part of this out whilst on an Opwall Expedition.  If you are an IB school you will be involved in the EE or Extended Essay or if in the UK an EPQ or Extended Project Qualification.  Those involved in CoPE will also have a similar project carrying out some research. There are many similar projects in most countries.

One of the key features of all of these ‘Essays’ or ‘Projects’ is that you have to choose your own Research Question but it is often difficult to find out exactly what is happening at each Opwall research site.  To help in this, we have produced a ‘Research’ lookup database that you can find below. The database lets you find out what is happening at each site and there are links to relevant pages on the Opwall website.  You can search the ‘database ’ using a variety of filters such as research area and location. You can use these filters at the bottom of the page, or use the search function to the right to search everything simultaneously.  The information in the database is largely correct (2016/17) although there will be changes and additions and you will need to check via the email below (schoolresearchprojects) for the current situation. (Information for this table has been gathered from the Schools’ brochure, School country booklets and the University brochure and dissertation web pages). Once you have decided on an area of interest you need then to consult with your tutor and get in touch with Opwall at schoolresearchprojects@opwall.com. The type of Individual Research Project will vary depending on country and educational system but it is less suitable for individual investigations where you collect your own primary data.  In some cases you might be able to get hold of raw data and you will often have the opportunity to help collect some of the data yourself.  You will certainly have the opportunity ‘on-site’ to meet up with the scientists involved which will allow you to get a deeper insight into your research question.

Many of you will also have seen the Wallace Resource Library (WRL) which contains many datasets based around the research being carried out and it has been prepared by the actual Opwall scientists involved.  It is a very valuable source of ideas with comprehensive datasets to look at and study. You can find the demo version of this at wallaceresourcelibrary.com.

Another potential resource is the Opwall Research Library which contains a comprehensive collection of scientific reports and papers from Opwall research sites.
