PEID 2018 Testimonials

 

“I gained connections and lasting memories with creative and innovative people from all around the world, expanded and flexed my own creative thoughts and collaborated on a project that myself and others can use as a start-up platform. I also gained connections to mentors who were very helpful!”
– Grant

“The experience taught me a lot of working in a team and applying my knowledge to real world issues. Seeing the other teams presentations gave me a lot of insight of how other students are approaching these important issues.”
– Glenn

“I really learned how to work in a group with which I was not totally compatible with to the best of my abilities. The lessons I learned of how to work with others in a time crunched environment will be invaluable down the road.”
– Shivarth

“This was the first time I worked with a team on a project starting from scratch through the whole brainstorming, research, designing, prototype, and presentation process. I gave the project my all and it was two of the most stressful days of my life but I was so proud of what we had accomplished in the end. I was mind-blown by the creativity of the guest speakers and mentors who inspired our team so much.”
– Peter
