Kenyon Summer Science Scholars Program

Kenyon College Summer Science Scholars, 2015


Poster site managed by Daniel Barich

Undergraduates at Kenyon conduct research projects in the summer, in collaboration with a faculty mentor. Each student presents a poster on their work at a public exhibition. For further information on research with undergraduates at Kenyon, contact the faculty mentors below.
