Undergraduate Symposium in Sciences Features Student Research - 12/2/2011

Students in the School of Mathematics and Sciences and Institute for Green and Sustainable Science presented their research in a poster presentation on December 2, 2011. Research projects ranged from a study of White-Tailed Ptarmigan in Glacier National Forest to an analysis of hydrogen evolution from ammonia borane and sodium borohydride.

During the fall semester, they had opportunities to not only conduct publication-worthy research, but also to showcase their talents for the campus community. "These opportunities set them apart from other sciences students, and it is important that we support their academic endeavors," said Dr. Loren Bertocci, dean of the School of Mathematics and Sciences.
