For the students who traveled from across the state and nation to participate in Texas A&M’s Summer Research Experiences for Undergraduates (REU), the annual Undergraduate Research Poster Session is the program’s pinnacle. It’s here that they get to showcase the results of their research projects and bask in the culmination of two months of grueling lab work and analysis, not to mention all the trial and error in between.
The poster session is not only a well-deserved celebration of their success, it’s also one final benchmark for these young scientists; they get to personally discuss the results of their research projects with their peers and other faculty besides their designated mentors. It boils down to huge opportunity to really show how much they’ve learned over the summer and do a little networking to boot
See what the poster session is all about.
