Student Projects

You are here


As part of the Milstein Program curriculum, students have the opportunity to work in teams on community-engaged projects in collaboration with one or more community partners. Some examples of projects are:

  • creating an app and database to help a local non-profit streamline their furniture redistribution program for low-income families
  • creating a virtual reality/augmented reality self-guided tour of the “first stop” on the underground railroad in the New Garden woods in Greensboro, NC, in collaboration with Guilford College and the Quaker Archives
  • collecting and refurbishing computers and other tech equipment to send to a school in Haiti
  • creating video tutorials on various tech topics for the students in Haiti
  • researching areas of interest such as education and environmentalism in Ithaca and the greater Tompkins area to inform future Milstein program projects
  • developing a wearable for sight-impaired / blind individuals that detects objects in their path using the same technology that powers self-driving cars
  • creating a translator and website to make academic resources like research papers available to socioecomically disadvantaged students or those with language barriers
