For their senior projects this year, members of the class of 2022 took on a wide array of independent projects with faculty advisors, including reexamining health care inequities within prison settings, building an electric go-kart, mapping the physics of a pirouette, and creating a cookbook with sustainable recipes.
Seniors presented their work in May in the SHAC atrium for fellow students, faculty, and staff. Projects ran the gamut from an electric go-kart built by Arthur Donohue ’22 with a max speed of 28 mph to the digitalization of CA’s archives by Yewon Kang ’22 and Melanie Tapia ’22, whose mixed-media “Concord Academy Digital Archive” comprised archival photographs and narratives of how CA has changed over its 100 year history.
With a mix of formats and approaches, participants had many ways to engage with the seniors’ work. Emmy McCormack ’22 designed a trivia game to go alongside the sex education curriculum she designed, while Quinn Harnden ’22 and Sam Weitzman-Kurker ’22 invited participation to explore their findings from studying ADHD in Massachusetts schools and Narn Rojvachiranonda ’22 demonstrated a redesign of Boston’s MBTA transit maps.
