Group Projects

Group projects are one of the most rewarding parts of the winter and summer courses. Participants split into project teams and put together a publication quality research project using complex systems tools learned during the week. On the final day of each week, groups present their projects. We consistently receive positive feedback about the projects.

Credit

Arrangements to receive credit for NECSI courses at a home institution should be made in advance. To do so, contact us at programs@necsi.edu.
