Why ALL USC Aiken Students Should Do SEED Projects
by Dr. Henry Gurr
- The students, in contributing to this major university event, gained unique and valuable "real world" experiences including:
- Project research and testing in circumstances where the outcome has uncertainty and surprise.
- First hand experience in planning, design, and construction with real materials, a first for many of our students.
- Extensive oral presentation of ideas to the public and responding to questions.
- Understanding that it is imperative for their future as a professional that they should engage in public service and to see contribution is easy, fun, and rewarding once you get started.
- Realize that they should help other young people just has they have been helped.
- Seeing just how enthusiastic and inquisitive younger people are.
- This promotes enthusiasm and increased desire for learning in our own USCA students. Thus, I believe that USCA students' contribution in events like SEED is an exceedingly important and even necessary part of their overall education and should be more widely promoted. Student's own evaluations of their SEED participation are available on request.
