The one-day event gave qualifying undergraduate students from different universities across the State of Georgia the opportunity to showcase faculty-mentored research posters before legislators as well as students and faculty of other schools.

Under the mentorship of Dr. Rami Haddad, GS participated in two posters out of 41 total posters presented. Wesley O’Quinn, a senior electrical engineering student presented his research in the area of improving the diagnosis of Pneumonia, while Andrew Kalaani and Justin McCorkle, both junior electrical engineering students presented their research in the area of Brain-Computer-Interface using electroencephalogram (EEG).
