Searching for unique and engaging research paper topics!

I've hit a creative block trying to come up with a cool research paper topic for my AP Capstone class. What are some of the best topics you've either written about or come across?

It's completely normal to hit a creative block when trying to find the perfect topic for a research paper, especially one as significant as the AP Capstone. Consider tapping into current events or emerging technologies for a start. For example, you might explore the ethical implications of artificial intelligence in the workforce. Another engaging topic could be analyzing the impact of social media on youth mental health.

Remember, the best topic is one that not only interests you, but that also has ample research available and poses questions that can lead to a meaningful inquiry. If you find a topic you're passionate about, it will shine through in your paper.

One student I worked with was fascinated by urban sustainability, so they investigated the effectiveness of urban green spaces in reducing pollution. It was specific enough to provide a solid focus while allowing room for comprehensive research and analysis. Don't hesitate to reach out if you need more guidance or someone to brainstorm with!
