Description

The symposium is a student-run event, designed to provide graduate and undergraduate students with a valuable opportunity to present their research in a professional and supportive environment in which they can receive feedback from industry, government, and academic experts who attend.

Attendees will have the opportunity to hear keynote addresses from both Jon Burpee, superintendent at Tule Springs Fossil Beds National Monument; and Dick Reid, Newmont Mining Corporation.

Throughout the day, students will present their research through oral and poster presentations, followed by an afternoon award ceremony recognizing them for their research and academic achievements.

The day will conclude with a reception complete with food, beverages, and a silent auction to help support next year’s event.

The event will culminate on April 30 with a student-led field trip to Ash Meadows National Wildlife Refuge.
