Special Projects

Alabama School of Mathematics & Science  /  Academics  /  Special Projects

Each year students take a break from their regularly scheduled course load to participate in Special Projects Week. During this time, students and teachers delve into a specific area of concentration. Although most Special Projects take place on campus, many occur off campus. Over the past five years, groups of students have traveled to China, Costa Rica, Italy, Mexico, Florida, Germany, New Orleans, New York, France, Peru, The Appalachian Trail, Ireland, and Spain.
