OUS 2017 winning Expo team.
April 25, 2017 : Southern Campus team takes home prizes again at Student Research, Creative Activity Expo
For the second year in a row, Ohio University Southern students were awarded first place in the Regional Higher Education presentations at the Student Research and Creative Activity Expo in Athens on April 6. The group also won second place in the nursing category.
This multi-discipline, collaborative group included students and faculty from the nursing, art and computer science and technology programs. The group researched various topics including Multiple Sclerosis, Cystic Fibrosis and Calcified Placenta and used their results and campus technology, including a 3-D printer, to create a website.
The 3-D printer and collaborative project were a result of a vision that started more than two years ago. Faculty and staff members representing the departments of art, nursing, computer technology and electronic media came together to apply for an Ohio University 1804 Fund award to bring this capability to the Southern Campus.
Associate Professor Beth Delaney said, “I’m really amazed by how professional the projects looked and how well they were presented.”
Nursing student and President of the Student Nursing Association Katie Frasher was one of the team members. Frasher said that the 3-D printing project and Expo experience were phenomenal.
“I thoroughly enjoyed collaborating with other disciplines outside of my nursing cohort,” Frasher said. “I was able to learn about the talents, specialties and skills of the CTCH and Art students and it was so great to be able to watch their creativity come to life.”
“At first, I wasn't completely sure what to expect with this project, but with much determination our group was able to make it come together. The outcome was even better than any of us expected. We all put so much hard work into this project, the opportunity to present at the main campus in Athens was unforgettable. I am so grateful for the experiences and friendships that came along with being a part of this project,” Frasher added.
