We are pleased to present the submissions from our project undergraduate and graduate level students. The projects span a variety of topics and disciplines. We believe that effective science communication is more important now than it ever has been. We challenged our students to embrace #BetterPoster principles in creating their presentations.
Here are the guidelines that were given to the students:
Students were strongly encouraged to present a physical #BetterPoster style poster during the conference to compete for travel awards and network with our external advisory board members. A template was provided.
First, Second, and Third Place winners were selected in both undergraduate and graduate categories. The winners were announced the morning of Tuesday, May 17, 2022 during the All-Hands Annual Meeting. All students who submitted presentations receive a certificate of completion, and the winners receive travel awards to present their work at relevant regional and national conferences.
