Fifth annual Research Days held in April
Binghamton University celebrated research, scholarship and creative activity with a series of events during its fifth annual Research Days, April 12-15. The event featured two campus-wide student poster sessions and events including an arts festival and workshops for faculty and students, as well as a keynote address.
Materials scientist Ainissa Ramirez, a science evangelist and former Yale faculty member, spoke on April 12 in the UU-Mandela Room. She’s the co-author of Newton’s Football: The Science Behind America’s Game (Random House) and author of Save Our Science: How to Inspire a New Generation of Scientists (TED Books). Her talk, titled “Making Friends With Failure,” highlighted the role of failure in the process of discovery across the disciplines.
