At Symposium, Students Present Research with Far-Reaching Effects Archives

Each fall, Bowdoin’s president hosts a science symposium to show off the range of student research conducted over the past summer.

On Friday afternoon in Morrell Gymnasium, more than 100 students set up posters or other presentations illustrating their work. They chatted up interested passers-by, including parents and other relatives visiting Bowdoin for Family Weekend.

Many of these students were supported by summer fellowships, most of which are offered through Bowdoin. The majority of the student fellows live and work on campus in close collaboration with a faculty member.

Last year, President Clayton Rose expanded the symposium to include student research in not just the STEM fields, but the social sciences and humanities as well.
