One of the highest pleasures for an academic teacher is to be surprised by an extraordinary student’s project or homework. Something that greatly exceeds expectations. I’ve reoriented my courses in a way to make such surprises frequent.
The second project in my Data Visualisation classes was related to interactive graphics. The task was to create an interactive graphics/app/tool that summarizes scripts from a selected movie or series.

Here are the top 6 visualizations created by my students. Mostly with R.
