Previous Research Projects

The WSSP was initiated in 1993 and has run for the last 24 years. Each year the WSSP starts in July with a summer Institute at a central location to the participating schools and continues at each high schools through the academic year.  Over the years, the locations of the summer Institutes have extended beyond New Jersey, and the research projects investigated by the WSSP students and teachers have changed.  Below is a table listing the research project, along with the number of schools and students involved in the program each year.  Select the Year links to find out more information about the project and the schools involved each year.
