Research, Intellectual Curiosity Take Center Stage at Symposium

April 26, 2017

Eight seniors present their findings at the 2017 BioScience and The Major Research Symposium.

As the culminating event for up to three years of extensive research, eight Shattuck-St. Mary’s seniors presented their findings at the 2017 BioScience and The Major Research Symposium held on Monday, April 24 in Newhall Auditorium.

During each 10-minute presentation, presenting students shared their research findings, described their interest in the chosen topic, revealed whether their hypothesis was correct, and ultimately identified what they enjoyed, struggled with, and learned through their work.
