Kannapolis resident completes research project
Daniel Page of Kannapolis, a member of the class of 2018 majoring in civil engineering at Worcester Polytechnic Institute, was a member of a student team that recently completed an intense, hands-on research project in Bangkok.
The project was titled “Mitigating Flooding in Khlong Toei.” In their project outline, the students wrote, “In Bangkok, Thailand, torrential downpours during monsoon season lead to flooding in the Khlong Toei slum, which prompts many health and sanitation concerns. We identified the key infrastructural contributors to flooding and created a collection of geographical maps based on our interviews, observations and measurements in order to convey to external stakeholders the susceptibility of certain areas within the slum. ”
All institute undergraduates are required to complete a research-driven, professional-level project that applies science and technology to address an important societal need or issue.
