Poster Session: 7 October 2016
“Back to Bates: Homecoming and Family Weekend” will take place at Bates on 2 October to 4 October. This year we are highlighting a POSTER SESSION ON STUDENT RESEARCH to inform parents and families about the sophistication of student research at Bates. You must register by Friday, September 23rd! No exceptions! REGISTRATION IS NOW CLOSED.
This year the session will take place on Friday afternoon, 7 October from 4:15 to 5:30 p.m. in the Perry Atrium of Pettengill Hall. The Poster Session enables many students and faculty mentors to participate, and represents the breadth of student research and service-learning activities across the departments and programs of the curriculum. The session provides an opportunity for families to learn more about student research in an informal, arena-style setting in which visitors can come and go, examine posters exhibited, or engage students and faculty in conversation, all at their own pace. It is designed to be informative, informal, and fun for all involved.
Students who have received funding from the Dean of the Faculty’s Office are required to participate, unless they are studying off campus in the fall. All other students IN ALL DISCIPLINES who have just completed summer research, curriculum development, or community-engaged projects are urged to participate.
Students may work individually or in groups, preparing posters describing research or service-learning projects with text, diagrams, maps, photographs, computer-generated images, photocopies, or other graphic material. Posters will be mounted on easels in the Perry Atrium, so they MUST be display-ready and self-contained! Participating students are required to be present for the 75-minute session to talk informally with guests and answer questions about their research; faculty mentors are encouraged to attend, too.
