Students across campus will present their science related research results on Wednesday, April 30 in the Student Center Ballroom from 4-7 p.m. The Seawolf Science Symposium is a forum for students to present their work to peers, alumni, family, faculty, and members of the community.
The event includes oral presentations from 4 to 5:30 p.m. by first-year students in "A Watershed Year" Freshman Year Experience (Science 120) and poster presentations from 5:30 to 7 p.m. by students in the School of Science & Technology and the WATERS Collaborative, an academic-management collaboration with the Sonoma County Water Agency.
The program is capped with an awards ceremony for best poster. Refreshments are provided.
First-hand research experiences are a mark of academic excellence at SSU. The symposium celebrates the outstanding scholarship and research conducted by students this year.
Symposium participants have studied a wide-range of interesting topics including: water pollutants in local streams, insect abundance and diversity, energy efficiency, exercise physiology, Weill Hall acoustics, and sensor network development. Many of the projects are funded by contracts, grants, and donors.
The SSU Science Symposium is funded by the Sonoma County Water Agency through the WATERS Collaborative and the School of Science & Technology.
