NHTI Department of Natural Sciences: Senior Capstone Project Presentations
April 27 @ 4:00 pm - 7:00 pm
We would like to invite you to our Senior Capstone Project Presentations on Tuesday April 27 from 4-7 pm via Zoom. The students will each be giving a 10–minute presentation about their capstone research project, followed by a short Q&A.
When you join the meeting, you will first be placed in a “waiting room” to avoid interrupting a presentation in progress. If you come while someone is presenting, just hang out and we will admit you when they are finished.
Below you will see approximate times for each student so you can plan your attendance. Plan to arrive about 10-15 minutes early so you do not miss your student if we run ahead of schedule.
We ask that the audience keeps themselves on mute while presentations are in progress. During the Question and Answer session at the end of each presentation, we will use the raise hand feature found on the participants tab on the bottom. When you are called on to ask a question, please unmute yourself.
During this event, you can see the type of research projects that NHTI students are undertaking to further their interest in science and to help assist some of our community partners. We hope their work will inspire you to collaborate with us on a project.
