WSUV Research Showcase schedule, April 9

To earn the 50 points extra credit for this, your group must personally present your research from 8:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. on this day, April 9 (you can work in shifts; displays must be removed by 6 p.m.) and each person will write a short yet thoughtful summary of that experience on the class Google group (about 500 words). You are expected to dress professionally and be prepared to answer questions and discuss the work. I also highly recommend that you participate in the other related campus activities, including attending the keynote speech by Dr. Bonnie Dunbar, former Astronaut and President and CEO of The Museum of Flight in Seattle, from 7 to 8:15 p.m.

I'll be coming by a some point to check out how everything is going. Best of luck!
