BYU Student Research Conference shows scientific skills March 19

The Brigham Young University College of Physical and Mathematical Sciences will hold its 25th Annual Student Research Conference Saturday, March 19, beginning at 8 a.m. in 1102 Jesse Knight Building. The showcase session will begin at 10 a.m. in 1102 JKB. Parking is free, and the public is invited to attend.  

Featuring the work of more than 350 students, the Student Research Conference gives both undergraduate and graduate students a unique opportunity to present the findings of their original research to an audience comprised of faculty, staff, family, friends and community members.

“This is a wonderful chance to showcase the great work being performed here at BYU,” said Scott Sommerfeldt, CPMS dean. “It also represents a terrific opportunity for the students to gain valuable experience presenting and explaining their research to an audience, further preparing them for their future endeavors.”

The conference offers a showcase session featuring some of this year’s most interesting and engaging work. The CPMS funds hundreds of undergraduate students to work with a faculty mentor. This allows them to participate first hand in important scientific and mathematical research, giving them a more comprehensive scientific education.

“We’re proud of our commitment to undergraduate research and the great experiences it provides for our students,” Sommerfeldt said. “These young scientists and mathematicians are conducting important, cutting-edge research that may someday change the world. We look forward to sharing a glimpse of that with the community at this year’s Student Research Conference.”
