CEL Capstone Showcase Winners, Spring 2022

Capstone Showcase Spring 2022

These students came to CEL last year asking to start their project already. They began renovating the greenhouse in the Math building to grow their vegetables and learn about healthy eating. The idea grew and evolved into wanting to alleviate food desserts: a beautifully transformed SEPTA trolley car into a micro-greenhouse that would allow commuters to grab a bag of produce and enjoy their surroundings while commuting everyday. I love the passion and enthusiasm these students have had the entire semester and hope that they continue to make their idea a reality. | GREENLINE GREENHOUSE

The Sands Award

Awarded in honor of former Head of School Dr. Priscilla Sands, this honor is given to the student or student team whose project embodies all four entrepreneurial pillars: Resiliency, Opportunity Seeking, Resourcefulness, and Creativity. In addition, this prize considers commitment and execution. It is awarded to a student or student team that truly went above and beyond expectations. Like the resiliency prize, this would ideally be awarded to a student team that plans to continue their work beyond the Capstone program.

Mindset Awards

These students embodied the resilience, resourcefulness, and adaptability that define an entrepreneurial problem solver.

This student or student team embraced challenges and exhibited a relentless commitment to their goals.

Awarded to the student or student team that identified the most interesting opportunity of all Capstone projects. This prize is intended for a student or student team that seeks to both solve problems and to make a broad, real-world impact with their solution.

Awarded to the student or student team that went “beyond the classroom” in pursuit of their Capstone project. These students sought resources and knowledge that weren’t readily available. They worked with external mentors, and utilized tools and technologies in a unique and inventive fashion.

Awarded to the student or student team that approached their Capstone project with the most creativity.

Awarded to the student team that expertly delegated tasks, effectively communicated as a group, and treated one another with respect.
