Vermont EPSCoR Holds its 10th Annual Student Research Symposium

The Vermont EPSCoR CWDD team held its 10th Annual Student Research Symposium on March 20, 2018 at the University of Vermont’s Davis Center. The symposium provided an opportunity for high school teams and undergraduate students to present BREE-funded research to a wide audience.

The symposium featured a total of 60 high school teachers and students as well as 28 undergraduate interns who presented BREE research performed in 2017 and 2018. The audience included students from Vermont, Massachusetts, South Carolina, and Puerto Rico.

The night examined not only environmental resilience but also personal resilience, as the attendees acknowledged the recent damage done by Hurricane Maria in Puerto Rico and the aftermath caused by that natural disaster.
