CCURI Participants Descend on Campus
What's going on at Vol State today? Twenty-four community colleges from seventeen states converge at Vol State campus CCURI's Spring Colloquium. CCURI (Community College Undergraduate Research Initiative) is a program funded by the National Science Foundation that supports research programs in community colleges.
Bassam Halabiya is a United States National Guardsman and undergrad at Edmonds Community College in Seattle, Washington. His project analyzes the synchronization patterns of a complex pendulum. "I think I'm the only one here with a physics presentation," he laughs. A lot of the presenters focus on environmental factors such as wildlife patterns or fisheries, though there may be some dinosaur research in there if you look. The poster presentations will be set up in the Pickel Field House until 4pm.
