The Research Challenge was an interesting addition to the everyday tasks – it allowed you the flexibility to explore any area that stoked your interest but under the guidance of a professional well-versed with data and always enthusiastic to lend a helping hand. Research can be daunting, especially today, owing to the multitude of resources available at one’s fingertips at a moment’s notice. However, the systematically designed process, with regular check-ins with a mentor at every stage, ensured that the task was broken down into doable, bite-sized chunks and allowed for greater extensivity as well as intensivity. More than anything else, though, it was a great avenue to work with your colleagues, pour over something that was a cause of mutual interest, establish friendships and overall create a competitive but festive environment amongst teams. From brainstorming ideas to the final presentation before the panel, it was a thrilling learning experience all the way through.
