Hi Liz - hope all well! Would love a chance to connect with you more about your comments above. We are building out a program to help bridge educators and employers, and we would so appreciate your perspective. Let me know what may be best way to reach you to connect!

Thanks Shane for the great suggestion - just added the link :)

Re: post-submission + students...that is definitely something I would love to keep testing. For individual students, I would love for there to be some form of interaction with the projects (rather than just passive intake of the information) - whether it is having students actually complete the project, share it and submit it online; creating virtual teams (like this one at OpenIDEO!), or engaging directly with the employers to ask questions, sign up to visit the company for a career day, browse internships, etc. My hope is that by ultimately creating a 2-sided platform, we can open up a lot of eye-opening opportunities (both on- and off-line) for students that would otherwise be very difficult to create!
