Graduating from school is a big deal. It's like a seal for all that hard work that has gone into your education over the years, and your senior year is proof enough. Unfortunately though, the last year generally means project submissions. The thought of what you should present is nerve-wrecking for sure. It mostly is tough to come up with an idea for your project, only because you want it to be a really good one.
Your solution lies in doing something you know and understand well. Be as original as you want, whilst making sure that the topic is substantial enough for a really good presentation. You wouldn't want to make a sub-standard submission when your entire school year depends on it.
The first thing you need to think of is uniqueness of topic. There are innumerable people that do not necessarily seek that distinguishing factor when considering their project ideas. If, however, you want your concept to turn out successful, you might want to consider this factor. Some good senior project ideas are given here for your convenience.
List of Ideas
Apart from the above mentioned unique factor, how do you know what a good topic is? You could, rather, you should begin with considering the class or subject you're working on. Luckily, the ones in field of arts and creativity have a lot of options. Fashion, fine arts, literature, etc., there's so much to work with. For those of you dealing with the subjects of business, commerce, law, or science, there's an array to choose from as well. Here are a list of practical and theoretical options to choose from.
Hippies: Rebels or Realists?
A subject like this could make a really great topic. The Hippie culture has always been a controversial one. While there was one class of people that admired and followed them, there was a larger lot of people who were against their lifestyle and everything that they believed in. Presenting a topic like this could allow you to express your views as liberally as you'd like to.
Euthanasia or Mercy Killing:
Various people, various opinions. Given its sensitive nature, a topic like mercy killing may not be well received by all, but it one that must be brought to the forefront and discussed. For a topic like this you could discuss both, the personal aspect, as well as the legal of euthanasia.
