Augustine and Pattison joined more than 50 undergraduates representing 22 colleges and universities in Pennsylvania in displaying their research posters and explaining their projects in the East Wing Rotunda of the State Capitol building. All undergraduates were recognized on the House floor. Augustine and Pattison had the chance to discuss their posters with the representative and senator from their home districts as well as Rep. Michael Schlossberg from Allentown.
