2011 SRCCS Talks, Final Papers, Posters and Photos

During the summer of 2011 we had four students from local community colleges joining our research as part of the NSF funded SRCCS (Summer Research for Community College Students) program. Nadia, Tim, Jordan and Justin did some great research during the summer. Find out more below!


Participants in the SRCCS program give a short presentation after three weeks introducing their research projects and discussing the research plans for the summer. Here are the talks given during the 2011 SRCCS program:


SRCCS participants write final reports summarizing their research during the summer. Here are the reports from 2011:

Automating the Optical Inspection System, Nadia Shevchuk, Tompkins Cortland Community College, Dryden, NY

Automatic Bake-Out Assembly, Tim Ramos, Mohawk Valley Community College, Utica, NY

Development of RF Cavity Testing Software, Jordan Shields, Department of Engineering Science, Hudson Valley Community College, Troy, NY

Critical Temperature Measurement Setup, Justin Riley, Corning Community College, Corning, NY

Good communication skills are essential for successful carriers in science, technology, and nearly all other fields. To practice these, SRCCS participants give presentations and discuss the exciting results of their summer research during a final poster session at the end of the summer. Here are the final posters from the 2010 SRCCS program:
