The Fortin Foundation Bass Connections Showcase is an annual event for student team members to share their research highlights with the community. This year, amidst the COVID-19 pandemic, teams have drawn on virtual means to communicate which challenges they tackled, how they approached their work and what they learned. Students collaborated online to produce websites, videos, digital presentations, podcasts, lightning talks, profiles and posters.

We salute the 2019-2020 project teams, and we invite you to explore some of their highlights in our special section, the Fortin Foundation Virtual Showcase. Here are just a few examples of what teams worked on this year:
