Fall 2020 Student Research Virtual Symposium

On November 13th and 14th, 2020 the Wyoming Research Scholars Program held it's first ever Virtual Symposium. For this online conference, WRSP undergraduate fellows uploaded their presentations on their current STEM research and research interests in advance and then answered questions from conference attendees via zoom. The event provided an opportunity for Research Scholars to share their work in a safe, convenient, and engaging setting.
