News Tenth Annual Capstone Fair at Marlboro College Graduate Center, July 12
BRATTLEBORO, VT -- (June 23, 2008) -- The Marlboro College Graduate Center invites the public to its Tenth Annual Capstone Project Fair on Saturday, July 12 from 12:00 noon to 3:00 p.m.
Director of academic programs, Kevin Bell, says these projects demonstrate how graduates fuse the knowledge they have gained across the breadth of their studies at the Graduate Center and then apply it in a new and creative fashion.
"For many, capstone projects are actual, working developments that will be applied by the student's employer or will be used to launch a new business by the student," says Bell.
Graduates from the class of 2008 have produced a wide array of projects. There is an online quality management course for EMS professionals, who are spread out over 9,304 square miles. A plan to develop an interactive cooking web site with easy to learn, remember and use features, including the viewing and printing of recipes searchable by ingredient. Then there is Art Trail, a newly created art portal and online educational space that strengthens and brings together community and arts, as well as sustains artists and teachers.
Visitors are encouraged to talk with the students about their projects and to critique them, providing the future graduates with objective, supportive feedback that will lead to further refinements.
The Capstone Project Fair is free of charge and will take place at Marlboro College Graduate Center, 28 Vernon Street, Brattleboro, between 12:00 and 3:00 p.m. Refreshments will be served.
