Frederick Bianchi: The project experience manifests itself in many different ways with students. In particular, it's the first time in their academic experience that they're working exclusively on a project in a group atmosphere over an extended period of time. That has a transforming effect on students. When you put two people together, three people together, four people together, you have a much larger domain and experience to draw upon. When that happens, a certain chemistry begins with the students and that transformation is what effects students the most. They go on in their careers and in their lives and they use that information, they use that experience, and occasionally they reflect to where it all began and how important it was.
