More risk taking by undergrads? Research projects are good and many engineering programs now offer some sort of undergraduate research experience. Communal showering doesn't qualify as being put in an unfamiliar situation (you have to read the article). Getting a summer internship might. Outcomes other than grades: an online portfolio is a great idea as is participation in design courses or competitions.
Or how about this? Evolution and existentialism are paradoxical chums in the union of science and humanity that I often advocate. Instead of risk taking what we might need is more disobedience. (You may think tl;dr.)
A union of science and the humanities is not a pipe dream. Nabakov was a very highly regarded lepidopterist.

Results of a study show that great companies follow three rules.
- Better before cheaper. All things being equal, improve your product instead of dropping its price.
- Revenue before cost. All things being equal, put your labors toward increasing revenue rather than finding ways to cut cost.
- There are no other rules.

Batteries, batteries, batteries. No, I won't let it go. Consider the potential of a graphene supercapacitor.

|Boiled sheep head. It's what's for dinner - in Iceland, at least. Let me spoil (pardon the pun) the story for you. The subject of the story prefers the head so fermented he can "drink the eye out of the eye socket."|
