Each AOC includes one or more “Grand Challenges.” Using the Senior Sequence on‐line database students join a research team associated with one of the Grand Challenges. We also use the AOCs listed below to cluster student’s posters (story‐boards showcasing their research) into meaningful group displays at USP's annual Urban Expo (in mid‐March).
