Laguna Beach High School Welcomed the 2021-2022 Authentic Exploratory Research Program Mentors
LAGUNA BEACH, Calif. - On Monday, September 13, our second Authentic Exploratory Research (AER) program cohort gathered in the LBHS Senior Patio for a welcome breakfast. Handpicked mentors connected individually with their mentees over breakfast as they began to learn more about one another and engage in preliminary discussions around the mentee's year-long project.
The AER independent research course provides the opportunity for students to propose their own driving questions in order to explore their passions and career pathways in a variety of fields. Students are purposefully matched with adult mentors to aid in their research and analysis. From Fashion Designers to Gaming Industry founders, mentors include Industry experts and leaders, and university-level academics.
