A Successful Year For BEEAM!

We would like to take a moment to express our deepest admiration and thanks to our 2019-2020 BEEAM Cohort.

The 2019-2020 BEEAM Cohort has consisted of Avery (Rose) Nolan, Maria Montalvo-Ramirez, Max Abraham Thomsen, and Amena Nushrat. As they worked diligently, supporting vital work taking place in four of our MIT labs, we have had the pleasure of watching these students learn and excel in all tasks placed before them with remarkable ability. Now that the year is coming to an end, key advancements in the fields of mechanical and biological engineering can easily be attributed to these young minds with the support of their dedicated lab mentors, faculty, and our BEEAM Director, Dr. Caley Allen.

Though we are sad to see some of our members move on, we are pleased to announce that students will be taking their next step into the world of STEM at fine institutions such as NYU and Georgia Tech. We also have some members that will be continuing on with us into the 2020-2021 year and continuing their work in the labs.

It was announced a few weeks ago that BEEAM would be hosting an End-of-Year event to allow our interns to present their work and findings to the larger group of labs and program supporters. The event went off without a hitch! We appreciate the 45+ attendees that joined us and really have enjoyed the positive outpouring of feedback about all that these remarkable interns have achieved!

If you would like to watch the presentations (which were broadcast on CCTV and in collaboration with the Museum of Science in Cambridge) a link can be found here: https://www.cctvcambridge.org/node/713550

As we embark on our next great adventure with our BEEAM 2020-2021 cohort, we look back fondly and, again, thank the interns that have made the last year such a success! We wish them all the best!

Kind Regards,

The BEEAM Team
