CONCORD — On Thursday, April 25, 2019, NHTI, Concord’s Community College invites the public to its inaugural Exhibition of Student Work. This free exhibit – which the college plans to make an annual event – will showcase the work of its students in a broad range of academic disciplines including engineering technology, manufacturing, mathematics, the humanities, natural science and health care (dental and nursing).
The event will kick-off Thursday morning at 9 am with a panel discussion on NHPR’s “The Exchange,” hosted by Laura Knoy. The topic is “Beyond Affordability: The Added Value of a Community College Education.”
The Exhibition itself will run from 5 to 7 pm in NHTI’s Grappone Hall. There will be over 60 exhibits, including both poster presentations and actual physical objects and demonstrations. In many cases, the students themselves will be on hand to describe their work. Light refreshments will be available.
The Exhibition of Student Work supplements the “Senior Capstone Presentations” held by many of the school’s individual academic programs at this time of year. Though these are also open to the public, they are not widely advertised and they are scattered over several weeks from April 23 through May 10. The new Exhibition brings a range of programs together at one time and place, giving the public the opportunity to witness the full scope of NHTI’s academic activities. (A list of individual capstone presentations will be available at the Exhibition, for those who may wish to explore one particular program in more detail.)
