ACS Undergraduate Research Poster Session
Sunday, April 11, 2010
Morning and Afternoon Sessions
The symposium provides an excellent
opportunity for undergraduate chemistry students to present the results of
their research. The symposium includes a
morning undergraduate research poster session, a luncheon and talk by Dr. Neil
D. Jespersen, ACS Director, District I, followed by the afternoon undergraduate
research poster session. Dr. Jespersen will
present a seminar entitled “Making the Most of Being a Student ACS member”. The financial benefits of being an ACS
student member are tangible – reduced meeting registration fees, special
student rates on journals and courses, and discounted prices with selected
companies. ACS student membership also
has a wealth of less tangible, but more important, benefits. This interactive session highlights ways to
benefit both financially and professionally.
Participants explore how they can develop their professional network,
explore career options, and position themselves for successful careers.
