On August 11th, eighteen NEWRnet interns returned to Vermont for the NEWRnet Undergraduate Research Symposium. NEWRnet interns spent the past 10 weeks studying topics related to water quality and agent based modeling in three EPSCoR states: Delaware, Vermont, and Rhode Island. Interns presented their summer research in two formats: the 2-minute talk served as an introduction to their research, and the research poster allowed for more time to learn about individual projects, methods, and findings.
The 2015 symposium included presentations by NEWRnet faculty, Dr. Shreeram Inamdar, and graduate students Catherine Winters and Douglas Rowland from the University of Delaware. We were honored to welcome Dr. Sidney A. McNairy, Jr. from the NEWRnet External Advisory Committee and former member of the Senior Executive Service of the National Institutes of Health, Bethesda, MD. Dr. McNairy gave the Keynote Address, inspiring students to excel during the remainder of college and into their professional careers.
