I love working with our first-year students in the Great Problems Seminars. Helping students with their first big WPI project is enormously fun, and I learn something new all the time. These courses not only give our students a head start on their major projects, they also can provide a passion and a career path. Watching that develop is one of the most rewarding experiences I have had as a teacher.
