6th Annual Research Symposium Highlights Wide Array of Student Research!

Last week, Wheatley’s 6th 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 research topics.

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.
