The annual Summer Research Poster Session is on Friday, Sept. 7, in the new Science Center. Join us for an opportunity recognize student achievement and experience the state-of-the-art 250,000-square-foot facility, which is home to the Departments of Biology, Biochemistry and Biophysics, Chemistry, Computer Science, Physics and Astronomy, Neuroscience and Psychology. While there, cast your vote for your favorite research project, take a tour of the facility, and enjoy appetizers, hand-piped cannoli from Meriano’s Bake Shoppe and one of many science-themed treats. All are welcomed and encouraged to attend.
Every summer, dozens of Amherst College students engage in research in the physical sciences, natural sciences, social sciences and humanities. From laboratories to archives to the field, students can spend six or more weeks extending their classroom research, working on their senior theses or assisting in faculty experiments. The Summer Research Poster Session is an opportunity for student researchers to share works in progress, summer research stories, thesis ideas and experimental results.
