The fifth-annual symposium for the presentation of Peninsula College Honors Program Capstone Projects is set for 3:30-5 p.m. Thursday, June 11, when students will present their original capstone research via Zoom.
Honors students include Logan Matlock (project: “Breaking out of the Binary”), Byeol Park (project: “Same Root of Two Different Trees: Political Science and Family”), Saki Kame (project is a lesson plan where classes from different nations are in dialogue through the online environment), Radha Sophie Newsom (project: “Eating the Planet to Save the Planet (and Ourselves)”), and Spencer Sinding (“Air Bee and Bee”).
The Peninsula College Honors Program is “a unique educational program for highly motivated students who seek to be engaged in an intensive learning process,” PC officials said.
A key component of the Honors Program, they said, is a culminating capstone project. Honors students work independently on their capstone projects throughout the second year of the program, guided by faculty mentors.
Capstone projects may involve original research, service learning, artistic expressions, international experiences or some combination.
The symposium is an opportunity for students to share their scholarship with the broader community.
