Student Research Expo
The College of Science is hosting the 12 Annual Student Research Exposition on Friday, Oct. 21, 2016 on the 3rd floor of the Mines Building.
Participating undergraduate and graduate students will be available to answers questions from the judging panel and the general public about their research posters. All are invited to drop by and experience this student focused event from 2:30 p.m. to 5 p.m. We hope to see you there!
"We think this program showcases exactly what is great about studying science at the University of Idaho," says Mark Nielsen, Interim Dean for the College of Science. "Because we're not a huge school, students have more significant contact with our faculty here, and even undergraduates have opportunities to work with our faculty on groundbreaking research. But it's because we are a research university that there is groundbreaking to be experienced – our faculty is truly world class."
