LSAMP poster session to showcase student research

November 29, 2010

Young scholars enrolled in the colleges of Science, Technology, Engineering and Agriculture  will display scientific posters at the LSAMP Fall 2010 Research Poster Session and closing program on Thursday (Dec. 2). The event will take place at 5-7 p.m. in Room 118, Purdue Memorial Union. 

For 13 weeks, 12 undergraduate student scholars in the Louis Stokes Alliance for Minority Participation research program have worked under the guidance of Purdue’s faculty mentors and their research team. The students have received an introduction to academic research, and they will present results of their explorations during the poster session. 

The LSAMP research program aims to enhance students’ commitment to higher education and to increase the diversity and quality of the STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) workforce.

The program is funded by the National Science Foundation and administered at Purdue by the Discovery Learning Research Center and the Office of the Provost. More is at www.purdue.edu/lsamp including information about applications for the summer 2011 research program.
