Giving all teams 3 extra weeks

The Bioinformatics project is officially extended by 3 weeks due to a slightly delayed start.

However, a lot of people have reached out from other pathways to request more time to work on their projects. We can’t say no when students are passionate about their work!

All pathways will get an extra 3 weeks where they have continued access to resources and weekly Q&A session with industry mentors.

Participation is of course optional. Only those who wish to work for more time on the projects, stay on. Student leads are not required to stay on. So, the tricky part is the recording of your achievements in this post virtual-internship period. Where there is a will, there is a way! We will figure it out!

Thanks Debaleena, tagging @UX-Leads-Summer2020 to bring their attention to this post

Thank you!! How will this work if someone isdoing both the June and July sessions? I would like to double-check and make sure that the option for an extra 3 weeks is being given to both June and July internships. Thank you in advance. :slight_smile:

Yes, the extra 3 weeks are being added to June and July. Participation is optional. Certificates will be issued to students who have finished the required 5 weeks.

There is overlap between the optional weeks of June and beginning weeks of July. It is the only way we can fit in the 2 sessions in summer.

Also, June folks can coast through the collaboration channel setup etc. Which gives you more time to continue working on your June projects while the new folks get settled down.
