We had a contact with the head of a bio-medical engineering department  
at VCU- he came and spoke to our team and shared all kinds of great
recent innovations and ideas for exploration- they learned a lot no
matter what- we have one student with a super sci- fi mind who
including last year wants to do something super abstract- the team
voted on his idea over something more concrete and doable- and I
think that is all good- and it is their assignment- and their
decision- has anyone else struggled with the choosing of more sci- fi
topics that end up very difficult to prove would be possible?
thought a couple students had some concrete projects that were very
applicable and would make an immediate difference- but it got nixed by
the larger group (less exciting)- I know it's all them- just feels
like a second season of extremely abstract- harder to do.....I have
asked a lot of questions.. I guess I am really asking if anyone else
is struggling and should i even care? we have a dominant one with
imagination that answers questions very authoritatively and don't want
to come across as discouraging him as I ask questions? Thanks- LD
