Physics REU to Participate in K-State Joint Research Experience for Undergraduates Poster Session July 31
The public is invited to learn about current research activities done by Physics REU participants as well as other K-State REU groups at a research poster session from 9 a.m. to noon Thursday, July 31, in the K/S Ballroom on the second floor of the K-State Student Union with other REU students on campus.
This poster session will focus on research completed by undergraduate students in physics as well as other group posters relating to sustainable bioenergy, sustainable energy, climate change, chemistry, biosecurity, ecology and evolutionary biology, and geography.
Roughly 50 poster presentations will be made by students who have participated in the Laser-matter Interactions at the Atomic and Nanoscales: Physics Research Experiences for Undergraduates as well as the Summer Academy in Sustainable BioEnergy Research Experiences for Undergraduates; the Earth, Wind, and Fire: Sustainable Energy for the 21st Century Research Experiences for Undergraduates; the Climate Change and Mitigation Research Experiences for Undergraduates program; the Chemistry Bioserurity Research Experiences for Undergraduates; Undergraduate Research and Mentoring in Ecological Genomics . Each of these programs has provided research experiences for undergraduates in summer 2014.
These visiting undergraduates from across the United States have worked with faculty and graduate students from physics, agricultural economics, agronomy, biological and agricultural engineering, biology, biochemistry, chemical engineering, chemistry, geography, grain science and industry, and sociology. Funding for the summer research programs has been provided by the National Science Foundation. Poster awards, sponsored by Phillips 66, will be presented at noon for the best posters.
