Annual Student Research Conference
The 2021 version of the Annual Student Research Conference (SRC) featured “lightening talks” presented by students on our School of Science YouTube Channel and judged by faculty during the week of April 19th. Twenty-six student groups presented their research. Four winners were selected to present live on April 23rd and to receive the Dean’s award of Excellence in Undergraduate Research (including $500 each in prize money).
