ggplot2 is a plotting package for R that makes it simple to create complex plots from data stored in a data frame. It provides a programmatic interface for specifying what variables to plot, how they are displayed, and general visual properties. Therefore, researchers only need minimal changes if the underlying data change or if they decide to change from a bar plot to a scatterplot. This helps in creating publication quality plots with minimal amounts of adjustments and tweaking.
In this workshop, participants will learn:
- What the components of a ggplot are
- How to create scatterplots, boxplots, and barplots
- How to change the aesthetics (ex. colour, transparency) of a plot
- How to create multiple plots at once
*Participants should have basic familiarity with R. If you are completely new to R, please be sure to attend the Introduction to R workshop on June 22, 2021.

About Jack Langerman
Jack was a proud Middlebury graduate and an extraordinary human being who seized every day he had to the fullest, living more in his 24 years than most do in 80. He never left a moment unused, an opportunity unpursued, or a friendship unmade. He was a Full Participant in Life, perpetually propelled by a pure joy that makes it difficult to recall a day that he would have described as “unhappy” – to Jack the most interesting person was whomever he was talking to; his favorite place wherever he was standing.
Jack applied a high level of character and commitment to all of his endeavors. When he set his mind to something he was all in, and by sheer force of will made himself a better student, a better athlete and a better person. Throughout, his natural warmth, good humor and broad, signature smile made it look easy, even when it wasn’t.
Jack deeply loved and was enormously influenced by the many communities of which he was lucky enough to be a part during his far-too-short life, and Middlebury featured prominently among those. These communities played an outsized role in molding Jack into the exceptional young man he became, and it is our honor, our privilege and our obligation to give as much back to them as they gave to him – and then some. With that as our guiding principle our hope is that Jack’s legacy will endure in part by ensuring that the institutions, organizations, people and places that shaped Jack continue to shape others just as profoundly. Students who apply for this internship should have a passion for sports, for Middlebury, and for life – Jack would have expected nothing less.
This internship is funded with a CCI award of $3,000.00. If you are offered and accept this internship, please be aware that your funding for this position is provided by CCI, and therefore you will be required to complete funded internship paperwork. Typically, seniors are not eligible for funding for CCI sponsored internships, but occasional exceptions are made.

In short, they are revolutionizing and democratizing the intersection of technology and fitness. The company just placed in the top 10 of University startups in Amazon’s Web Services 2020 competition.
About the Role: While your internship would be unpaid, the knowledge and experience you would gain from reporting directly to the CEO, CTO, CMO, and Creative Director daily of a company that’s on the cusp of receiving angel funding in the second quarter, would set you apart when applying for jobs upon graduating from Middlebury.

Their mission statement is to democratize fitness and health; to mitigate and eliminate unnecessary injuries in the weight room, to supplement and improve the occupational therapy/recovery process following an injury. Here is a video behind what they are doing:
What they are looking for
The team is looking for a creative mind willing to stretch out of their own comfort zones. The company is entirely “outside the box” and so the way they’re developing a product is in the same vein.
Technical Skills Needed:
- Adobe Suite (particularly premiere, illustrator and photoshop)
- Someone who can draw technically and be able to incorporate and manipulate those drawings in adobe illustrator
- Videography skills (shooting and editing)
- Marketing skills (social media and branding)
If you have anything you think you can offer the team, REACH OUT.
