Wake up and get ready for the day.
Danny’s interdisciplinary team focused on reevaluating and improving the climate change resiliency and chemical safety program of their sponsor, the Massachusetts Office of Technical Assistance and Technology (OTA). Through interviews, surveys, and site visits, the team presented OTA with solutions to increase the effectiveness of their program and create safer workplaces for all.
Through his IQP, Danny was able to collaborate with people he wouldn’t have met otherwise, and says the project work has given him valuable insight into what he can expect from the working world after graduation. He’s also improved his time management, organizational, and leadership skills over the course of the project.
The impact the team’s work had on the sponsor was made clear, something that meant a lot to Danny, and he believes will serve as a motivator in future ventures, both academically and professionally.
