Southern Regional Honors Conference
HPU Honors Scholars visited Asheville, NC, March 30th – April 1st, where Riccardo De Cataldo, Brittany Gentilhomme, and Hannah Grau presented at the Southern Regional Honors Council Conference. The annual conference provides opportunities for undergraduates in honors programs and colleges to present their scholarly research. Riccardo (pictured below at left) presented on his use of a 3D printer to build models of electron waves (orbitals), which can aid in student understanding of these models. Brittany (below at center) spoke about her exploration of the honors experience in public education and college, which arose from a project she completed in strategic communication, creative writing, and literature. Hannah (below at right) exhibited her use of plaster, laser cutting, and 3D printing to translate the human bust into an art form. All three students gave fantastic presentations!
