DIS Students Present with Copenhagen’s Research Institutions

This spring semester, the Science Research Practicum was set in motion for the first time, giving ten students the opportunity to pair with Copenhagen-based research institutions to conduct research.

Each student worked 15-20 hours per week with a supervisor to develop research that will contribute to larger ongoing projects at the institution they worked with.

To recognize these students and unveil their work, a Science Research Practicum Poster Symposium was held at DIS last Thursday, May 8.

Students and their supervisors presented their research projects with posters, while DIS staff, faculty, and friends engaged them with questions. Science & Health Program Coordinator and developer of the Science Research Practicum, Stephanie Clemente, made a brief speech to welcome everyone to the practicum’s first symposium, congratulate all the students on a job well done this semester, and thank the supervisors for facilitating such a successful research opportunity for DIS students.

At the conclusion of the symposium, students involved in the practicum had the chance to talk with each other about their research and exchange knowledge.

Congratulations to the following Science Research Practicum students for their hard work and diligence this semester!
