BYU College of Physical, Mathematical Sciences plans research conference March 20

Brigham Young University’s College of Physical and Mathematical Sciences will hold its 2010 Spring Research Conference Saturday, March 20, providing students and the public with a unique opportunity to share scientific information.

Now in its 24th year, the conference will feature research presentations from more than 350 students — more than half of them undergraduates — in a variety of academic disciplines. The conference’s general session will begin at 10 a.m. in 1102 Jesse Knight Building, followed by several technical sessions running from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m.

Over the past decade, with the help of external research funds and many generous donors, the college has been able to fund research projects that pair students with a faculty mentor, allowing them to work one-on-one to conduct scientific and mathematical research and gain first-hand experience, according to Lynn Patten of the college staff.

"These unique opportunities provide students with a fuller, more comprehensive scientific education. As a result, BYU students are more prepared to move on to graduate school or take a job in industry," Patten said.

While the conference is a chance for the college to showcase the work being performed in the college, it also provides an opportunity for the students to gain valuable experience presenting and explaining their research to an outside audience.
