Student Project Showcase

In the interest of safeguarding the health of our students and faculty/staff members by limiting the potential of spreading COVID-19 within our community, the 
2020 Student Project Showcase is postponed to Fall 2020.

Join us to see an array of projects in Biology, Chemistry, Computer Science, Engineering, Geosciences, Geography, Math, Physics, and Psychology.
