Faribault, MN - The yearlong BioScience research projects came to fruition Monday evening in the weCreate Center at the BioScience Research Symposium as the COE students presented their findings. Eight seniors gave presentations on topics ranging from health care in rural Nicaragua, to neuroprosthesis for restoration of function following spinal cord injury, to neuronal regeneration in Parkinson’s disease. Dozens of people packed the weCreate Performance Studio to learn about the issues that SSM students explored. Prior to the senior presentations, sophomores and juniors had a chance to explain their projects on a smaller scale at the poster session. Students and parents walked around to the different posters as the BioScience students explained their research and findings. The eight seniors who will graduate on May 30, have aspirations to continue on to college and pursue the medical field. For more photos of the event, visit the SSM Flickr page.
Six seniors and one Postgraduate student worked on constructing a fire pit as part of their senior leadership project. Mr. Bergdahl oversaw students dig a hole, lay the brickwork, and carve out a nice spot just West of Whipple Hall to relax by the fire. Broydon Stufko PG, who worked on the project for the last two years, describes what it was like building the pit.
In the beginning, the fire pit was nothing more than a dream; merely smoke in the wind. We never dreamed that it would become a reality. A team was assembled, consisting of Andrew Farny ’13, Hollis Malkowski ’13 and me, under the wise guidance of Mr. Bergdahl. The world came to know us as The Brotherhood. We spent the early days of the project holed up in a small room every Saturday and Sunday, huddled over a drawing board as we hammered out the details of the project. This process lasted all winter, with nary a fire to keep us warm. We feared for our lives, but knew the sacrifice was for the betterment of the Shattuck experience. We knew our destiny in life, and that destiny was to go forth and give the world a fire pit. The four of us ventured off into the massive unknown of Faribault, in search of bricks and mortar. The journey was long and dangerous, but in the end it was worth it. We found a supplier of bricks, and even a place that would forge us a metal ring to keep the heat from destroying our bricks. Everything was coming together perfectly, the end was in sight. But then tragedy struck; the worst storm in recent history. The snow fell heavy and long, and held on until nearly the end of May. By this time, we couldn’t build, couldn’t even dig the base hole. The team crumbled, each of us going our separate ways, to pursue a new goal in life. But I couldn’t shake the feeling that we needed to wrap up what we had started. As it just so happened, my path led me back to Shattuck, giving me a second chance to take on the monumental task of building the greatest fire pit this campus has ever seen. A new group was put together, determined to make the pit come to fruition. It was led by me and Mr. Bergdahl, with Zoe Berlinquette ’14, Damian Clarke ’14, Devin Garg ’14, Sean Harrison ’14, SangJun Lee ’14, Broydon Stufko ’14, and Sara Wicks ’14 as the new recruits. It took hours of backbreaking work, our fingers bloodied to the core, and finally, the fire pit became a reality. It took two years of work, thinking of nothing but the end goal, and now it’s real. I can leave in peace.
