There’s a lot of incredible student research happening at the Cornell Lab. The video above is just a teaser—we used it to kick off our 2013 Parade of Students—and it captures the great experiences available to students here, as well as the imagination and drive of the students that take those opportunities and run with them. We think you’ll find it inspiring.
When we showed this video to our Board of Directors last Friday, it led straight into our 2013 Parade of Students. Fifty-four undergraduate and graduate students came onstage, one by one, to present their research. Each student had about one minute and exactly one Powerpoint slide—a breakneck tour through student research here at the Cornell Lab. The whole thing took just under 80 minutes.
Our administrative board always looks forward to the Parade of Students (we do them every other year; the last one was in 2011). We hope you can see why when you watch the archived video. Suddenly you’re in a world full of questions that need to be answered, systems that need to be explored, and places that need to be savored, and perhaps saved. And these 54 students represent only about one-third of all the student work going on at the Cornell Lab.
If you’re a friend, family member, or colleague of a particular student, you may want to skip straight to them. To help you out, we’ve compiled an index below the video (alphabetized by last name). Just look up the student and then scroll directly to the listed time point to find them.
We join this video as Dr. Irby Lovette is introducing the Parade of Students, just after the audience has watched the video at the top of this post:
