Culmination of Chemistry's 2017 Summer Research Program
After training together, participating in group presentations, and working full time on research projects for ten weeks, the chemistry summer research students and their faculty mentors are a close-knit group. On July 27, 2017, the 35 summer research students in chemistry presented posters about their projects to the department and other curious people who wandered into the area near the entrance to Burling Library. Before the department poster session, the group of students and faculty posed for the photograph below in T-shirts designed by the students. Then they celebrated the end of the research period by having lunch together at a local restaurant.
Some of these students will also take part in a poster session during Grinnell College's Family Weekend on September 23, 2017, and some will travel to an Undergraduate Research Symposium in physical sciences hosted by the Midstates Consortium for Mathematics and Science in November.
