The event was a huge success. All mentees listed above presented their research in a poster format to over 40 people. We invited three judges to vote on the quality of each poster. These judges were the department chair Prof. Rich Carter (Department Chair), Margaret Haak (Senior Instructor II), and the Dean’s Distinguished Lecturer Prof. Karen Wooley (Texas A&M). Each poster was judged based on three main categories: a) Figures, b) Design, and c) Presentation. Each judge assigned a score from 1 (lowest) – 10 (highest) for each category – and the sum of these scores determined the winners. All three judges praised the undergraduate participants for the high quality of research and presentation.
