For the first time in a decade, two University of North Georgia (UNG) students will present their research to the U.S. Congress in a virtual event April 27-28.

UNG senior Suzy Steel and junior Rebecca Corley will participate in the Council on Undergraduate Research's (CUR) Posters on the Hill 2021. The two women pursuing degrees in physics were among 60 students selected for the annual event.

"In any given year, only 10% or less of submitted posters are selected," said Dr. Anastasia Lin, assistant vice president of research and engagement. She said the last time UNG students presented at Posters on the Hill was 2011.

Steel said it is especially rewarding since UNG is considered a small institution.

"The Council of Undergraduate Research and others have recognized the importance of our research and how it can impact science," said the 22-year-old from Alpharetta, Georgia.

Corley and Steel's research focuses on collisions between electrons and different nuclei. The two study the collisions and the particle debris field through computer simulations.
