Engineering Community Development Bios and Water Filter in Belize (Digital Story)
Ryder Babik, Walker Brand, Charlie Connellan, Bennett Hermann, Matt Lubas, Stephen McCaffery, Natalie Smith, Kennedy Wynn-Gibson
My team and I of Engineering Community Development will be building a Bio-Sand Water Filtration system at a local elementary school in a Mennotite community through a local contacts with an organization called Basecamp Belize. This trip over Feb Break, we will be looking at maintence of a prior built filter, discussing the challenges of the build/ communication, and scouting out future projects in Belize- like a solar sterilization unit. We hope to partner our colloquium with other groups presenting on challenges/ experiences in Belize.

From Country to Campus: Covering Third-Year Housing through Digital Storytelling (Digital Story)
Katherine Paxton, Kiki Spiezio, Caroline Sanders, Brandon Walsh, and several people who have already graduated
This project, From Country to Campus: Third-Year Housing Shifts W&L's Storied Social Scene, was reported, produced and designed by 14 students who enrolled in a course taught for the first time in fall 2015 at Washington and Lee University in Lexington, Va. The course, Multimedia Storytelling Design, attracted journalism, history, politics and English majors who wondered how The New York Times and The Guardian put together their Pulitzer Prize-winning interactive stories, Snow Fall: The Avalanche at Tunnel Creek and NSA Files Decoded: What the Revelations Mean for You. Students went "behind the curtain" and learned basic web design and programming skills through HTML, CSS and JavaScript, and used other digital tools to imagine, design and create powerful, compelling interactive features with audio, video, graphics—and words—that are on the cutting edge of journalism and mass communications

From Dirt to Display Case: Archaeology of the Athenian Agora (Digital Story)
Mason Grist
I was a member of the excavations at the Agora of Classical Athens this summer; I learned a lot about Classical Greece, especially the Agora, during my work. The presentation will be an expanded version of a 30-minute presentation I have prepared for the Classics Department to be given September 22. Specifically, I will discuss the use of technology in the field today and how uncovering artifacts helps us in the greater goal of uncovering and understanding the space where some of the greatest statesmen in history once stood.

Get Out There (Digital Story)
Harry Lustig
I will be showing a video "digital story" of various travel and study abroad experiences with spoken voice overs from personal travel journals. The overall message is to have a positive outlook and to "get out there." I hope that this video will inspire others to get outdoors and reap its many benefits.
