Undergraduate research can be one of the most important experiences during their time on campus. The Office of Undergraduate Research Summer Symposium gives students an outlet to present the research they’ve taken on during the summer and learn from their peers about other research across campus. Not only does this give them an outlet to practice communicating their science, but this also opens the door for future ideas and collaboration. Two students presented at the symposium this year who were hosted by BAE.
