The purpose of our groups IQP was to develop a better, safer and more technologically advanced security system for schools. Our first initial step was to research past active shooter scenarios to see if we could determine a pattern or conclude on the typical profile of an active shooter. Next, we interviewed numerous school officials of both public and private schools, grades K-12 to determine if there were patterns in their safety protocols as well as lapses in their protocols that could place students in danger. Finally, we developed a system that we thought would increase the safety for students and faculty as well as increasing response time from the Police and Fire Departments. Our results are as follows.
