Student Team Research Posters

All FRI students present their research posters at campus events. Each cohort presents two posters, representing two projects, the first developed in the fall freshman Research Methods Seminar, and the second representing their results from the research they proposed in the spring freshman course and then conducted in the fall sophomore course. These posters are presented at a public session at the annual FRI Research Day in December. At that event, each student team has an opportunity to talk with faculty and other students  about their research results.
