Summer joint REU poster session awards

By Keith Rutlin

The joint REU poster session was Aug. 1 in Fiedler Atrium.

According to Mary Rezac and Ron Madl, co-directors for the K-State Center for Sustainable Energy, the level of research accomplishment achieved this past summer was impressive in all posters that were displayed. The outstanding quality of the posters and presentations given at the poster session made selection of the poster awards all the more challenging.
