Karen E. Wetterhahn Science Symposium

Each May Dartmouth College celebrates scientific research with a symposium named for the late Karen E. Wetterhahn, Professor of Chemistry and co-founder of the Women In Science Project (WISP) at Dartmouth. The symposium was established in 1992 and includes a keynote address by a distinguished scientist, followed by an undergraduate research poster session.

All Dartmouth undergraduates conducting scientific research can present a poster at the symposium. All students who plan to present a poster must complete the online registration form, including students who are co-presenting.  Students presenting senior honors thesis research may also participate in the Christopher G. Reed Science Competition, sponsored by Sigma Xi (the scientific research society). Any student participating in the poster session is eligible to compete in the Library Research Award for the Sciences, sponsored by Dartmouth College Library and the Friends of the Dartmouth College Library.

The 2017 Wetterhahn Symposium coincides with the year long Thayer School of Engineering's 150th Anniversary Celebration (see schedule of events).
