SAT Summer Program Projects – Why are they so important?
Cogito students engage in individual SAT summer program projects during their 4-week experience. These projects begin with students being paired with a professor, businessperson, lab, top school, lawyer, and more. They aim to generate positive social good and leave an impact on the world around them. Through this partnership, students design their own independent project toward creating a meaningful social impact. At the end of the program, students are required to present their individual projects and share their experiences with the rest of the students.
Last year students in the entrepreneurship group designed reusable bags to send to Cuba aiming to decrease plastic pollution. Through financial aid and donations from US companies, students provided reusable bags to Cubans. Above all, their goal was to deliver these reusable bags to as many people as possible.
Berklee student, Jessica Nathania, mentored the music group last year. On top of mastering music skills, students attended the Berklee recording studios in where they were able to record their own song.
Students in the architecture group visited several architecture firms in the Boston area. Additionally, they visited the Boston Design Center and saw luxury product lines of fabric, furniture, antiques and bath design. Furthermore, they learned how architects work with different providers and towards the end of the program they built their own portfolio.
Stephanie Williams, student of Arts in Law and Diplomacy from Tuft University mentored the law group. Students analyzed several law cases and compared the differences in law regulations between the United States and their own country. Overall, the primary focus of this project was the study of the legal system and court visits.
The SAT Summer Program projects are not only a great learning experience for our students, they also serve as important extracurricular activities to include in the Common Application. Admission officers are going to be particularly interested in seeing how students have been involved in leadership positions. They look for dedicated students who put energy and effort to their activities. Cogito SAT program projects are great opportunities to develop leadership skills and prove how important it is to work towards social change.
