DENIN announces grad student symposium

Aug. 5, 2015--The Delaware Environmental Institute (DENIN) will host its first research symposium for graduate students on Thursday, Oct. 8.

The symposium will take place from 3-7 p.m. in the Harker Interdisciplinary Science and Engineering Laboratory and will include both oral presentations and a poster session. Cash prizes will be awarded to the top presenters in each category.

“We wanted to give graduate students in environmental fields an opportunity to get out of their labs, connect with students from other disciplines, and learn more about each other’s work,” said DENIN Director Don Sparks.

He noted that the symposium also provides an opportunity for students to polish their presentations and posters for the many professional meetings held during the fall semester.
