Renée Crown University Honors Students to Present Capstone Projects May 2
A group of 122 seniors in the Renée Crown University Honors Program will present their capstone projects on Wednesday, May 2, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. in the Hall of Languages.
The presentation panels will run concurrently in 11 rooms throughout the building, except during lunch (noon-1 p.m.), and are free and open to the University community.
Capstone projects are the culmination of three to four semesters of independent research, professional and creative work by students from across the schools and colleges of the University. Working with a faculty advisor, the students design, research and complete a significant project in their major field of study.
Among the topics that students are presenting on this year are mass communications and cultivation theory; Better, a digital mental health and wellness magazine; Meštrović’s “Moses” and public Holocaust remembrance; project management education; blockchain and supply chain; branding and web design for preschools; the low mandible maneuver and its effects on aerodynamic and acoustic measures; the role of social media in the 2014 Ukrainian revolution; and the history, politics and memory of My Lai, 1968-2018. The projects range from work developed in scientific labs; to creative projects including magazines, screenplays and films; to architectural theses; to research and analysis representing a wide range of disciplines and methodologies..
Formats for the 15-20 minute presentations will include slide shows, websites, illustrations, films, readings and performance. Many of the students will also present or publish the results of their undergraduate research work at national and international conferences or in publications.
