DF SciRes has two tracks for juniors.
- If students have completed a research project that can be entered into at least two of the competitions, they can enroll in the COMPETITIVE JUNIOR track, which is an HONORS LEVEL COURSE.
- If students were unable to complete a research project between sophomore and junior year, they have the option to enroll in the NON-COMPETITIVE JUNIOR track, which is not weighted. They will then be able to concentrate their energy on developing their research project to the point where it can be entered into the local competitions. While the track is considered non-competitive, these students are expected to participate in some competitions, but they will not be competing against students with completed projects.
