Research presentations by students in Hartnell College Digital Bridge Academy

May 15th, 2009

Students in Hartnell College’s Digital Bridge Academy will present the results of their research on drug abuse, child abuse, and job opportunity at a public presentation on Thursday, May 21, at 6 p.m., on the main stage in the Performing Arts Facility. The research projects are based on student surveys of area residents.

The Digital Bridge Academy is an award-winning intensive program designed to help students achieve maximum results. Using a cohort-based system, students in the Academy typically double their grade point average and successfully complete twice as many courses per semester as similar students studying on their own. This is Hartnell’s first year of offering the Bridge program, which was developed at Cabrillo College and has won funding from the National Science Foundation and the Hewlett Foundation.

The presentation of research projects is the culmination of a semester-long journey. The free public event is anticipated to last from 6 until 7:30 p.m.

For more information on this event at Hartnell’s main campus at 411 Central Avenue in Salinas, please call political science instructor Larry Adams at 831-755-6778 or ladams@hartnell.edu.
