Festival of Science
The annual Festival of Science (FOS) was held on Friday April 23rd in Eben Holden. At this year's event Biochemistry majors joined their peers from the sciences to share their research via oral or poster presentations.
The Festival of Science has been celebrated at St. Lawrence University since 1996 and is a platform for students to showcase the original research projects they have worked on in collaboration with a faculty mentor. The FOS also provides an opportunity for students to gain experience communicating their work in a format similar to that of professional research conferences. The event is sponsored by the Office of Academic Affairs and is organized by the Festival of Science committee comprised of faculty from Biology; Chemistry; Environmental Studies; Geology; Mathematics, Computer Science and Statistics; Physics; Psychology and the Science library.
