PATHWAYS TO SCIENCE SUMMIT EVENT
The Pathways to Science program celebrated the achievements of its mentors and mentees at the final Summit Event on Saturday, May 11. Participants, who had been matched with mentors or mentees in Fall 2012, presented the results of the research they had performed together over the last six months in a poster session hosted at PPPL.
Students presented research in topics including holography, botany, taxonomy, biology, and fluid dynamics. The Best Poster Award was presented to Varna Kodoth for her research: The Effects of Ultraviolet Light on E.Coli.
The Summit Event also marked the beginning of a collaboration with ARISE, a mentoring program which will absorb the PPPL Pathways to Science Program in the upcoming year. We look forward to continuing to provide research experiences to students through our collaboration with the ARISE program!
