Showcasing Science Talent

Over 150 students working in the labs of 40 faculty members displayed 64 posters and one truck at the Ninth Annual College of Science Research Day held May 3 at Duncan Hall. Students and faculty were on hand to discuss their work with visitors including alumni and industry representatives. Most of the students were undergraduates majoring in biology, chemistry, computer science, geology, mathematics, meteorology and climate sciences and physics and astronomy. Associate Professor Craig Clements and his students also demonstrated their new mobile atmospheric profiling system, a truck pulling a compact trailer loaded with the latest tech tools including lidar and sodar, which use light and sound waves to track winds generated by wildfires.
