Each year, students who have completed research projects have the opportunity to present their projects at the BMCC Student Poster Presentation, which is held in March. Students doing research in any discipline and under any of the research programs at BMCC (honors, S-STEM, C-STEP, LS-AMP) are invited to participate; students receive a certificate for their participation and are recognized individually at the end of the event.
Here are some of the participating student research projects from March 2009:
Maannyah Patel used the tools of statistics from MAT 150 to analyze a mountain bike company's profits and losses. She is currently a mathematics major, and Dr. Alla Morgulis was her mentor for this project.
Arsalan Malik used trigonometry from MAT 206 to build a model of a complex modern building which he designed himself. After completing his degree in liberal arts at BMCC, he plans to transfer to a four-year program in structural engineering. Dr. Claire Wladis was his mentor for this project.
