Summer Undergraduate Research Successes

Aaron Mangel presents at summer research poster session 2011-0729 Sean Fredericksen presents at summer research poster session 2011-0729

College students represent the fastest-growing segment of the smartphone market. Is it possible to harness the power of these devices to improve classroom collaboration? Rising seniors Aaron Mangel (left) and Sean Fredricksen (right) spent the summer developing an Android-based student response system and exploring how this technology may change the way professors teach. Their summer experience culminated in a presentation at the College of Natural Sciences' Summer Poster Session. They are continuing their work this semester and plan to deploy their app for testing in Math and Piano classrooms this spring. You can see their poster in the hall near the faculty offices.

Keisha (Harthoorn) Fortney extended her 2010 summer research on Virtual Puppetry into an honors project. She presented her work at the Immersive Education Initiative Summit in Boston, Massachusetts, and had an abstract published in HCI International by Springer Press.
