The third annual symposium for the presentation of Peninsula College Honors Program Capstone Projects will take place Tuesday, June 5, from 1:00 pm to 3:00 pm in Keegan Hall, room M-125. Students will present their original capstone research with a reception following the presentations. Students are dedicating this year’s symposium to the memory of Hodge Wasson, a Peninsula College Honors graduate who passed away this year.
The Peninsula College Honors Program is a unique educational program for highly motivated students who seek to be engaged in an intensive learning process. A key component of the Honors Program is a culminating capstone project. Honors students work independently on their capstone projects throughout the second year of the program, guided by faculty mentors. Capstone projects may involve original research, service learning, artistic expressions, international experiences, or some combination. The symposium is an opportunity for students to share their scholarship with the broader community. It is also an excellent opportunity for students interested in pursuing Honors at Peninsula College to learn about the kinds of capstone projects being completed, and to talk with students finishing their Honors Degree.
The Honors students are Christian Brown, whose project is titled “Moments and Centers of Mass: A Missing Chapter;” S.J. Goh, whose project is titled, “The Power of Lock-In: Empowering Customers to Make Informed Choices about Technology;” Monica Kim, whose project is titled, “Joyce Creek Hydroelectric Feasibility Study;” Lisa Sedgwick, whose project is titled, “The Functional Role of Red Alder in Nitrogen Dispersion;” Gabriel Stark, whose project is titled, “An Overview of PMS and an Inquiry of Society's Role in its Development;” Pua Sweeney, whose project is titled, “Treating Atopic Dermatitis/Atopic Eczema;” and Seren Weber, whose project is titled, “Accidental Hybridization of Lupine in Large-scale Restoration and the Potential for Directed Evolution.”
Join us to be inspired by these individuals and their excellent work in completing the Honors Program at Peninsula College. A reception will follow the presentations.
This event is free and open to the public.
