SF State’s best and brightest inventors and researchers are in the spotlight, winning the campus student research contest and soon advancing to the California State University-wide competition. This year three students from the College of Liberal & Creative Arts are featured.

Winners from the College of Liberal & Creative Arts are:

  • Trevor Myers’ product design project, "Improving the Eye-Drop Experience," addresses research that has shown medication errors and poor ergonomics to be problems with eye-droppers and their packaging. Myers is a Master of Arts candidate in Industrial Arts.
  • Joshua Freimark analyzes how to deal with bugs invading historical collections​ in his project, "Use of Integrated Pest Management in the Small to Midsize Museum of the 21st Century.” Freimark is a Master of Arts candidate in Museum Studies.
  • Eduardo Gonzalez’s research project, “Contextualizing Conflicts: Anti-AKP Protests in Modern Turkey,” examines social movements in democratizing countries, with a focus on Turkey. Gonzalez is an undergraduate majoring in International Relations and Political Science.

The Graduate Research and Creative Works Showcase takes place April 30 from 3 to 5pm in the Main Gym. The CSU-wide competition takes place May 1 and 2 at California State University, Bernardino.
