“Whether students go on to become curators, engineers or ad executives, in the ‘real world’ one needs to know how to research a problem, analyze relevant data and present findings in a clear and cogent way. This project is designed to aid students in building those skills.” —Dr. Tanja L. Jones quoted in Dialog
