Multiple sessions, organized by each department, were held across campus including an Idea-to-Incubator business competition; theatre students presenting their scene work; freshman focus panels and the original research efforts of Long-Vanderburg Scholars.

银河app平台网址的工作为多种猛禽的铅来源提供了更好的理解, including non-scavenger species," said Chesko. “这很令人兴奋,因为米利金给了我机会在区域和国家会议上发言,并提高公众对人类活动对野生动物影响的认识."

Uriah Walker, a senior chemistry major from Lansing, Ill.,她解释了她是如何使用3D打印来教化学本科生微流体. 微流体学是一门在微米级的小通道中操纵流体的科学.

According to Walker, 由于制备微流体器件的困难,微流体学在本科阶段通常不教授. During her presentation, 沃克谈到了她如何使用3D打印机和计算机辅助设计来制作这些设备.

“有机会在校园里使用3D打印机是不可思议的," said Walker. “我知道,当我进入研究生院的时候,我可以把这些经验用在未来."

In reference to Celebrations of Scholarship, Jeff Aper noted, “我认为从某些方面来说,这是一年的巅峰,来自整个大学和不同学科的人们有机会真正展示学生们的工作质量."
