Proudly presented by:
School of Science and Technology, Office of Research and Sponsored Programs, and the Center for Environmental Inquiry

4:00-6:30 pm Tuesday, April 30, 2019
SSU Student Center Ballroom

The Science Symposium showcases the scholarship, research, and achievements of undergraduate students from the School of Science and Technology, the Center for Environmental Inquiry, and those receiving funding from the WATERS Collaborative and the Stephen Norwich Memorial Fund. Students present posters with the results of their research and speak to attendees about their experiences. The Symposium is open to whole campus as well as the public and community members.

We encourage faculty to recruit students to present at the Symposium or to consider incorporating attendance into their class assignments. Participating in the Symposium is a great way for students to become actively involved in the science community. Prizes will be awarded for outstanding research presentations.
