During the summer of 2010 we had three students from local community colleges joining our research as part of the NSF funded SRCCS (Summer Research for Community College Students) program. Virginia, Jared, and Rocco did some great research during the summer. Find out more below!

2010 SRCCS Talks, Final Papers, Posters and Photos


Participants in the SRCCS program give a short presentation after three weeks introducing their research projects and discussing the research plans for the summer. Here are the talks given during the 2010 SRCCS program:


SRCCS participants write final reports summarizing their research during the summer. Here are the reports from 2010:

Superconducting Radio Frequency Cavity Design and Testing, Virginia Martelli, Tompkins Cortland Community College, Dryden, NY

Design and Fabrication of High Temperature Nb3Sn Sample Producing Furnace, Rocco Cammarere, Mohawk Valley Community College, Utica, NY

Optical Inspection of Niobium SRF Cavities, Jared Sagendorf, Schenectady County Community College, Schenectady, NY


Good communication skills are essential for successful carriers in science, technology, and nearly all other fields. To practice these, SRCCS participants give presentations and discuss the exciting results of their summer research during a final poster session at the end of the summer. Here are the final posters from the 2010 SRCCS program:
