Independent Research Presentations Fall ’10

The presentations were held on December 8, 2010 in SC-P117. Talks went on from 10:40 a.m. until 12:30 p.m. They were followed by a poster session, held from 12:30 to 1:30 p.m. Freshmen and sophomores majors (with the exception of 3-4 students) were notable for their absence. The presentations by the 18 students were outstanding. Congratulations to all participants.
