Scholars Capstone Spotlight: Political Brain

Mainaiya Myers, a recent Ridge View Scholars Academy for Business and Law graduate, focused her Senior Capstone Research Project on the question "how can taking a government course make you more politically aware as a citizen? Her interest in this topic was sparked by the recent presidential election when many misunderstandings were expressed on social media regarding the outcome of the election. Myers used a survey sent out via social media platforms Twitter and Facebook. The overall results of the survey were positive and proved my hypothesis that government courses can increase individual political awareness. You can view the results of this study by visiting her website Elect Your Brain by clicking on the image.
