WSU Summer Undergraduate Research Featured at Virtual Symposia

Pullman, Wash.—Washington State University will feature the mentored research of nearly 60 undergraduates from 36 universities at three virtual symposia on Friday, July 30, Aug. 3, and Aug. 6. Each event runs from 10:30 a.m.-noon each day. The public is invited to the no-cost presentations.

“The Office of Undergraduate Research has had the opportunity to assist research programs from a number of STEM disciplines this summer as they hosted students on campus and virtually for around 10 weeks,” said Colin Mannex, associate director.

“The students may come from institutions across the nation plus WSU, but they shared a common experience by working with WSU’s outstanding faculty researchers and their teams on a variety of important projects.

“We look forward to hearing individual students explain the work they did and the results they found during their time at WSU.”
