This was a great experience. I tagged and steamed clothes.
Great Experience! A friend and I helped direct kids to the lab as well as set up experiments for experimentation and fun! In particular, I helped/learned about electromagnetism through straws, wires and nails through basic principles of physics.
The program focused on academic professionals describing ways to become more involved in research regardless of a students major. The speakers described how we could conduct research and find mentors who could help facilitate our journey.
The program was directed by Dr. Bryan Hagger. It was a good experience. Engineering Honors is department specific due to ABET accreditation. Dr. Haggar lead a student discussion, and it was interesting on the ways an honors thesis could be conducted. Some students take the traditional route by presenting a thesis while others explain the knowledge they gained from their internship experience.
This summer, I interned at Baxter Pharmaceutical Solutions in Bloomington, IN. Apart of my program, the interns went to corporate at Chicago, IL for intern week. There, I had the opportunity to volunteer with fellow interns at Feed My Starving Children. FMSC is a Christian based organization that delivers nourishment and the gospel to children in underdeveloped communities abroad. My role at FMSC was to gather packages of grain and box them for transport. It was a wonderful experience, I would love to return if given the opportunity.
My 2nd Honors requirement was fulfilled by me serving as an MC for “Understanding the Rainbow.” This program was intended to give insight through the perspectives of older individuals from the LGBTQ+ community and to help educate others.
For one of my honor’s requirements, I went to the Honor’s College program about internships at Crystal Bridges. There, I learned about employment opportunities outside if my major in the NWA region within the arts.
