Seven biology, physics and mathematics students were selected to do a wide-range of different research in the United States and abroad.
Two physics students will continue research this summer, adding four solar-powered golf carts to Georgia College’s current fleet of two. In addition, they hope to make the current model more environmentally-friendly and use “aerodynamics” to reduce the time it takes to charge the battery.
Austin Sanders credits his degree in physics for giving him additional distinction and helping him land his new job at an engineering company in the metro Atlanta area. But it’s not the only degree he’s earned, nor is Saturday his only commencement.
