3D Printed Vases

Levi Raskin '20, Illinois Mathematics and Science Academy

8:30 AM - 9:00 AM

I really like these vases. I think there is something fun about modifying an object that has appeared throughout all history and destroying its functionality: retaining aesthetics and removing functionality. These 3D printed vases cannot hold water, and nor can they survive for centuries like they’re historic inspirations. That interest in the disconnect between myself and history dictates that the making of my my designs to be near impossible, or at least extremely skillful, to do by hand or through casting.

Imaginary: track 1 | Intro: Waves

Chandra Gangavarapu '21, llinois Mathematics and Science Academy
Ahana Narayanan '21, llinois Mathematics and Science Academy

9:00 AM - 9:30 AM

The EP starts off with the intro. This song talks about the feeling of being in a place where everyone is exactly the same and experiences the same things, and compares it to the sea. The sea always remains constant, and is controlled by the moon, which “takes everyone on the same ride”. It then talks about how two people break away from this normal cycle and dream about a different life, day and night, unrestrained. Intro: Waves can be applied to society today and breaking away from societal and cultural norms.

Building the Coursestars Brand

Melena Braggs, Illinois Mathematics and Science Academy

9:30 AM - 10:00 AM

The main purpose of this project was to build the brand of Course Stars, a small tutoring business based in Illinois. This brand building was done through Facebook and Instagram, and the project lasted from November 2019 to March 2020. In that time, the analytics from Facebook and Instagram were tracked and analyzed. While there was a slight increase in the amount of interactions from the sites combined, there’s still few followers on Instagram. Marketing on social media is generally helpful, but in this project it did not make a large difference.

Civicly Envolved Intership: Working on the Candidate Profile Screen

Patrick Hultquist '21, Illinois Mathematics and Science Academy

9:30 AM - 10:00 AM

Going into any situation, I think I’m always a little overconfident. This was no exception. I had previously made an (unimpressive) app, had talked to people before, and knew how to work with a team; so this would be all the same, right?

I thought going into this that I would probably do something around 80%working and 20% learning. The very first day I realized how wrong I was. I learned that in this internship, I was going to, well, learn.

SAFESTART: Simplifying Technology for Seniors

Melissa Myint, Illinois Mathematics and Science Academy

9:30 AM - 10:00 AM

Our project is nonprofit and aims to help seniors understand how to use technology in their daily lives by creating videos that are simple and easy to follow.As in this day and age seniors are afraid to use their smart devices other than the basic call function which can prevent seniors from receiving the benefits associated with the use of apps that could track their medication, allow them to video call, and etc. These seniors are therefore being left out from the increasing digital society. In order to accomplish this goal, we are creating instructional videos on the uses of technology.

SAFESTART: Simplifying Technology for Seniors

Savannah Pagan, Illinois Mathematics and Science Academy

9:30 AM - 10:00 AM

Within our project, my partner and I aimed to fulfill the goal of simplifying technology usage for senior citizens. Seniors are often left behind in terms of technology, often because no one has taken the time to sit down with them and explain how to utilize their devices. There is a need to be technologically fit in today’s society, and by educating older generations on these topics, we can move them forward into this technological age.
