Centralia College will hold its fifth annual Capstone Presentation Day Friday, June 9, in the new Trans Alta Commons building. Oral presentations will be given in room 122 from 12-1:30 p.m. followed by a poster display session in the banquet room from 1:30 to 3:30 p.m.
The community is invited to view the presentations and projects, meet the students, hear talks on a variety of topics, and celebrate academic excellence. Light refreshments will be served. Admission is free.
There are expected to be 24 student projects presented at the event, which showcases a student’s culminating project. It is meant to incorporate their learning with a practical application.
This year’s projects include:
- An automated aluminum can crusher
- Radiocarbon dating and tree ring analysis
- Posters and newsletters about children’s health issues
- Using muscle sensors to improve motion in robotics prosthetics
- Electronic data collection for chemical reactions
- A moisture alarm for home appliances
For the third year, the Centralia College Foundation provided up to $10,000 for students to complete Capstone Projects across all disciplines. The money was awarded through an application process.
In addition to the capstone presentations, Centralia College is hosting an Arts Festival to showcase music, theater, and art displays the entire week. A reception will be held in the Washington Hall lobby at 1 p.m. Friday. Be sure to visit both events!
