As one of the many events of Gaelebration (the 150th Anniversary of Saint Mary's College), the School of Science profiled the 2012 Summer Research Program and the work of 15 student researchers in the Atrium of Brousseau Hall on Saturday afternoon, October 6. The dean and department chairs reviewed and voted on the posters that demonstrated the research projects. First Place (the Joseph P. McKenna Science Medal) was awarded to Nathalie Lambrecht; Eliot Jackson and Vincent O'Brien tied for Second Place; while Anthony Villafranca took home the Third Place award.
The students conducted their research during a ten-week period over the summer; and although the research is intensively academic, the students also enjoyed several social events. The dean and chairs would like to take this opportunity to acknowledge the hard work of each student, congratulate the winners, and thank the faculty mentors for their active participation in the student research projects.
