Every Wednesday from June 17th – July 22nd there is an opportunity to hear the students who are conducting research present their topics.

Pack a lunch and come and listen! All are welcome to attend these events held in via Zoom! There will be 3-4 topics covered each week. The sessions are from Noon-1 p.m. (although a few weeks we may run a little longer).
