Join us for an immersive and interactive experience at BU’s Experiential Learning Expo! The Expo, presented by Boston University’s Undergraduate Affairs, will showcase dozens of student projects undertaken in conjunction with the Cross-College Challenge, the Learning Assistant Program, and BU Spark! Program Highlights: Cross-College Challenge Showcase Located on floor 1 The BU Cross-College Challenge (XCC) is the Hub’s signature interdisciplinary project-based, 4-credit elective course open to juniors and seniors from all of BU’s undergraduate schools and colleges. The XCC engages students in team projects that address a real-world problem or an enduring human question. During this event, student teams will present their final projects as part of the following Cross-College Challenge courses: HUB XC 420 A1 Unheard Voices: Deconstructing the Dominant Narratives by Inclusion HUB XC 433 A1 Thinking through Puppets HUB XC 433 B1 Marketing and Social Equity in the Cannabis Industry HUB XC 433 C1 Photography for Youth Activism HUB XC 433 D1 Bike to BU Additional XCC teams will present as part of BU Spark! Demo Day. Learning Assistant Program Poster Session Located on floor 1 Students completing their first semester as Learning Assistants will showcase their final projects redesigning a small aspect of the course in which they taught. Projects combine the pedagogical theory learned throughout the semester with the in-class, experiential practice of teaching. BU Spark! Demo Day Located on floor 2 Spark! Demo Day is an opportunity for students participating in Spark! supported courses and programs to showcase their work to members of the BU community and with our partners from industry and civil society who engage with Spark! as project sponsors, instructors, and mentors. Guests will have the opportunity to hear student presentations, visit project demo stations during breakout sessions, and vote on their favorite projects.
