Several of our UPE students, Landon Petzoldt and Matt Beiswenger, presented during Honors Day going above and beyond their already heavy course loads. They spent many months researching and creating these projects to present them at North Central’s Honors Day as a part of the Rall Symposium.
Landon’s project researched and developed a tool in virtual reality to measuring driver performance and eye gaze. His goal for this project was to create an open source tool that was a custom driving simulator for educational research, with the intent to reduce the gap between research interest and available technology.
With students and teachers in mind, Matt’s project focused on a dynamic code analysis program that could help teachers provide more timely feed back for students. Utilizing his software teachers could bulk download student assignments and run them through test cases much quicker than they do now by hand.
