Reid walks the hills of Colby Campus as he muses about his time in Surgical Interventions + Biomedical Engineering, and looks forward to his next session at EXPLO. He discusses the bittersweet feeling of saying goodbye to friends, the excitement to meet new ones, and his interests in the medical field.
Students crowd the quad on the last evening of the program. There, they play Gaga ball, make friendship bracelets, dance, paint pet rocks (and each other's legs), and pose for pictures with their friends one last time!
Surgical Interventions + Biomedical Engineering students present their final research projects to their peers, instructors, and guests conferencing in over video. Students introduce ideas for new biomaterials, further improvements to current technologies, and more as they showcase the outcomes of their studies.
Students in Psychology + Neuroscience work together and individually in preparation for their final presentations later in the day. The halls fill with students practicing speeches, revising the wording of their hypotheses, and discussing the ideas they will present...and a little goofing off with friends. There's always time for that.
Business students use their morning to practice their business proposals set for the afternoon. From perfecting their presentation skills to preparing for all potential questions and concerns regarding their plans, they each use their time wisely to polish their last chance to wow consultants.
Students in the Artificial Intelligence + Machine Learning Concentration dive into the setup of their facial recognition software and involved project. As their program downloads, they tweak code, test their camera's hardware, and make predictions as to when their Raspberry Pi is finally ready for use.
Engineering students begin the construction of their self-driving cars. Following the detailed instructions carefully, they test their programming before setting their vehicles loose on the carpet.
Medical Rotations students present the case studies they've conducted to their peers and a visiting medical student. They describe their diagnostic process for a simulated patient, then create a treatment plan based on what the students were able to observe.
Emily sits for a brief interview in front of some flowers on the quad. She discusses the fast friends she made, the inside jokes they share, and her favorite moments from her Concentration and the rest of the summer.
