Wheatley Research Symposium Shines a Spotlight on Student Work!

Earlier this evening, Wheatley’s 5th Annual Research Symposium was held in our lobby (for the poster sessions) and a Room 450 (for the senior research presentations). The breadth and scope of the topics covered a large range of science and social science research topics. As always, hearing our students explain their work was quite rewarding!

A highlight of the evening was the presentation of the research of members of the Class of 2016!

We are thankful to have such wonderfully motivated students along with the faculty to support their efforts. Particular thanks to our Science Research Coordinator, Ms. Alexis Blondrage, for her work with these students and her coordination of the evening. Additionally, thanks to Mr. Andrew Ardito for his work with students in the Social Science research domains.
