Washburn Transformational Experience (WTE)

Day of Transformation


The Day of Transformation is a chance for students to present their completed WTE project to the public (students, faculty, guests).  You have accomplished an amazing thing.  Share it with others and inspire them!!!  Invite your friends and family!!!

The Day of Transformation is about two (2) weeks before the end of the Fall and Spring semesters.

Students from any of the four (4) WTE areas are welcome to present at the Day of Transformation.

All presentations at the Day of Transformation will be poster presentations.  Due to space limitations, oral presentation are not possible.  I am sure your faculty mentor can provide you with an example of a poster from which you can work.  If you would like, contact Dr. Mike Russell, WTE Director, for poster examples.

Student presenters and their faculty mentors will be provided a free lunch prior to the poster presentations.  Following that, we ask students to present their posters for a period of 1.5 hours.
