Karen E. Wetterhahn Science Symposium

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

All Dartmouth undergraduates conducting scientific research are invited to present a poster at the symposium. All students who plan to present a poster must complete the online registration form, including those 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).
