Any undergraduate (any class year) with science research experience over the past year is invited to create a poster and participate in the symposium. Many students will present research-in-progress, in contrast to a completed project (senior thesis students are the exception).
Poster presentations are a common feature of many scientific meetings. Preparing a scientific poster will provide you with an opportunity to communicate your research in this format and add to your skill set, particularly if you intend to continue on in the sciences. Be sure to add this experience to your resume.
Undergraduate researchers need to register with their poster title and other required information which will be printed in a symposium brochure.
