Zooplankton In Adirondack Streams And Venom On The Web Among 32 Topics At First Clarkson Undergraduate Research Symposium
Topics like "the hidden lives of zooplankton in Adirondack streams" and "looking for an antidote to venom on the Web" will be in the spotlight on Saturday, as Clarkson University undergraduate students present the results of their research and projects at the University's first annual Symposium on Undergraduate Research Experience (SURE).
Fifty students will present the results of 32 research projects orally or through poster presentations. The topics include "The Hidden Lives of Zooplankton in Adirondack Streams: Lanscape Level Factors, " "Looking for an Antidote to Venom on the Web: How to Deal with Anti-Websites using Crisis Management," and "Light Emitting Powers for Electroluminescent Display Technology."
The subjects presented by the students are from undergraduate projects, research, internships and co-ops carried out during the summer or fall ’98 semesters. Twenty-two faculty members mentored the undergrad scholars in their work.
Organizers say that the symposium was established as a forum for undergraduate students to present the results of their scholarly experiences. The program's goal is to recognize and encourage students who are actively participating in various research and projects. They also hope that SURE will help to fulfill the “Vision of Clarkson Education” by enhancing excellence in oral and written communication.
The event takes place on Saturday, April 17, in the CAMP building's Robert A. Plane Atrium and adjoining lecture halls from 9:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. The public is invited to attend.
