By Bev Makhani, Undergraduate Education

undergraduate-researchPULLMAN, Wash. – Noel Schulz, engineering professor and WSU first lady, will deliver the keynote speech opening the Summer Undergraduate Research Symposium at 9 a.m. Tuesday, Aug. 2, in Smith CUE 203. Undergraduates from universities across the nation will present posters at the free, public symposium 10 a.m.-1 p.m. in the Smith CUE atrium at Washington State University.

More than 70 displays will answer questions such as: How does Grandpa remember the little details necessary to plan a movie night out with Grandma? What’s the impact on rivers and aquatic creatures when biojet fuel is produced from wood products? What are the nutrient needs of microorganisms whose job is to keep farm soil stable?

The showcase is hosted by the Office of Undergraduate Research, part of WSU Undergraduate Education. The office coordinates student services across 12 research projects led by WSU faculty in Pullman, Vancouver and Spokane.
