    As the school years comes to a close, first class cadets across campus are gearing up for one last presentation during the Coast Guard Academy 2018 Cadet Research Symposium.

    The annual symposium, held a few weeks before graduation, gives the first year cadets a rare opportunity to showcase their academic prowess and scholarly work before a diverse audience of peers, faculty, staff, sponsors, and supporters.

    Team and individual research, analysis and design efforts culminate at the event in the form of student presentations throughout campus. Most importantly, the Cadet Research Symposium promotes scholarship across all academic disciplines, highlights the Coast Guard Academy as an intellectual resource, and encourages the development of critical thinking and communication skills of all cadets.

    “For their capstone problems, the Coast Guard Academy cadets differ from the other service academy students because they are given Coast Guard centric problems,” said Cmdr. Ryan Hamel, an instructor in the ORCA program. “The cadets are solving problems that relate to the Coast Guard and can help the Coast Guard.”

    Capstone projects were developed to replicate the real work experiences cadets will face when they enter the Coast Guard after graduation. The capstone project teaches students the skills and concepts needed to succeed as a project manager. Each student is responsible for a particular aspect of the overall project and takes turns in the lead role.
