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). New this year: 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.
Online poster registration now open Friday, April 17 – Wednesday, May 13. Go to Student Information and Registration.
