Anyone love doing projects like this or have resources for Genius Hour, Passion pursuits, ind. study?

I used some resources that I found on Teachers Pay Teachers for Genius Hour projects last spring when school shut down and I needed something for Google Classroom/virtual world ASAP. It was a nice starting place for brainstorming and planning their projects. I had to supplement with my own twists to fit the needs of my kiddos of course, but that is with any resource and gifted kids.

I teach an Independent Study Project course (ISP) for our 9th and 10th graders that meets in class for 1hr/week for a full year. What exciting things have come from that ISPs! How do you maintain structure/scope/assessment while still allowing your students to have the academic independence and freedom within their project?
