The fascinating topics integrated into Duke’s Bass Connections span from aspects of daily life– such as a project called “How to Ask Questions”– to the fundamentals of life itself, such as a team working to integrate ethics into artificial intelligence. The value of these programs is indisputable, as one DukeEngage Alumni can personally attest. Tommy Klug (’18) participated in the Bass Connections project team Cookstoves and Air Pollution in Madagascar: Finding Winning Solutions for Human Health and Biodiversity. His passion for the project inspired him to continue his research, utilizing the DukeEngage opportunity to design an independent project to further his understanding with the area and engagement with the community.
