Project ideas

Project ideas are meant to help inspire student thinking about their own project. Students are in the driver seat of their research and are free to use any or none of the ideas shared by their mentors.

Data Visualization for Hurricane Trends

There is a lot of interest in estimating how hurricanes are going to change in the future, and what trends have been like in the past. This project would involve reading some of the current research on hurricane trends and creating simple, legible visuals or infographics to help make that information more accessible to the general public.

Climate Change Risk Assessment for a City or Town

Most research on climate change tends to draw conclusions about changes expected for a large region, but planning and resiliency typically occurs at a much more local level. This project would consider the risks for a particular area and consider solutions that similar regions are adopting.
