Summer is a unique season at CESTA. Our space in Wallenberg Hall is enlivened by a diverse cohort of undergraduate researchers, who spend the bulk of this “break” learning, experimenting, documenting, and ultimately, growing in community. At the outset, our interns discuss what they hope to get out of this experience and how to best synthesize their efforts and their learning. In lieu of research posters, students created condensed research stories for their projects, producing a narrative and visual lookbook of the CESTA summer program.
This CESTA Summer Research Anthology is an artifact of this summer’s cohort while gesturing to our community’s past and future. Multi-year projects are nearing conclusion and others are just beginning. On behalf of Brian, Erik, and the entire CESTA community—enjoy the stories in this collection and find more about these and other projects online at cesta.stanford.edu.
