A couple come to mind. A pro-bono project for Black Mothers Breast Feeding Association in Detroit MI -- it was a website to schedule educational meetings and participants would surveys, the survey results were used to apply for grants and federal funding.

The other project performed failure analysis on complex switch rings on communication satellites, to determine what, if any, "switch" configurations could be directed to spare TWTA's (Travelling Wave Tube Amplifiers) when a main TWTA failed. These switch rings are so complicated it's impossible for a human to figure out (and this was before the days of AI, hahaha.) What was cool about this project was that I achieved something not even the PhD's could figure out. So, overall, the communication satellite's lifetime in orbit was extended as a result of my analysis software which led to better switch ring designs.
