Student Projects Shine at Fall Research Symposium

November 09, 2016

Poster sessions held in Fayfield Hall and the weCreate Center highlight creativity, diligent work, and sound research.

Students from Shattuck-St. Mary’s BioScience, Engineering, and The Major Centers of Excellence and the Honors Program showcased their impressive work to faculty members and peers during the Fall Student Research Symposium on Wednesday, November 9.

Participating students transformed Fayfield Hall and the weCreate Center into a gallery of compelling, innovative project presentations, fielding questions and suggestions from visiting SSM community members. 

Each Honors Program, BioScience, and The Major student prepared a Symposium poster that outlined a particular area of focus, the research they have conducted so far, and the key questions they hope to pursue and answer through additional research. Topics ranged from color theory and the origins of the Universe to the detailed study of neuroscience, and innovative ways to address arthritis and degenerative disc disease.

Students also had the opportunity to hone their presentation skills during a practice poster session on Tuesday, sharing their projects with faculty and staff members during periods 6, 7, and 8.

Meanwhile, Engineering students held an open house in Fayfield 102 where they showcased their work through presentations and hands-on demonstrations. We look forward to seeing how these ambitious, thoughtful, and rigorous projects progress throughout the school year.
