Student Research Fellowship Program—Final Presentations

Ferris Box Flame_2012Student Research Fellowship Program—Final Presentations

Please join us next Wednesday (August 20 at 2PM) to see the final presentations from our 12 Student Research Fellows. Among these 12 students are two of our Honor students: Chelsea Craig and Jacob Longenecker. Each fellow will give a brief 7-8 minute presentation on the progress they made this summer working with Faculty from around the University. Although time will be tight during the sessions – we will have plenty of time to discuss the projects over snacks at the reception following the event (4PM in the SCI 126 lobby).  Please feel free to contact me ( or x2544) if you have any questions.
