Our class represents only a portion of the larger Periclean Scholars program at Elon University. Classes before and after us are working in areas all around the world including Ghana, Namibia, Mexico and Sri Lanka. Although our projects differ, the goals and motivations are the same. As part of a Pan-Periclean effort, the organization puts forth monthly newsletters and each class produces videos about the places they are working and what they are doing.

India Video
Winter Term 2010

This is a brief overview video of the Elon University 2010 Winter Term trip to Kerala, India. Katie O'Brien, a member of the 2012s, is responsible for the footage and compilation of this video. As part of the class, students taught hands on science projects to secondary school students and had some time to explore and visit well known places. After the trip, Katie went up to Pune and Mumbai with a few other students to visit potential partners for Periclean Scholars 2012 that focus on rural health care. (The music in this clip is from 3 Idiots, a movie students saw in theaters while they were there.)

Elevator Speech 2009
2009 Elevator Speech

Each year, the Periclean Classes are asked to write and produce an "Elevator Speech." This is essentially a 30 second clip that describes who we are and what we are working on. The purpose is to have something prepared to quickly inform someone about the program. To view our 2009 Elevator Speech, please click on the link to the left.

This is the Elevator Speech our class put together for 2010.
