#HAPPENINGNOW: NEWS + UPDATES
MEET THE FALL CEO'S
Students in the entrepreneurship elective spent the term learning the different facets of the startup world and developing ideas for new and innovative companies. The following three ideas were voted the best in class. Led by a student CEO, these ideas will be pitched to a panel of venture capitalists and entrepreneurs tomorrow. Read more.
HUMAN GENOME IDENTITY PROJECT
Students in Foundations of Biology class recently completed their Human Genome Identity Project, which explores the connection between genetics and human identity. After collecting an impressively large amount of data, they worked in groups to create two visual presentations of their findings – a hallway exhibit and a video. Read more about their projects on the BVR blog.
FORCED FROM HOME EXHIBIT
Students in both MS and US visited the Forced From Home – Doctors Without Borders Exhibit on the Long Wharf in downtown Boston. Students experienced the exhibit with a Doctors Without Borders aid worker as their guide while seeing, hearing, and interacting with images, stories, and materials gathered from refugee camps, rescue missions, and emergency medical projects around the world. Read more
