We are announcing the first Bronx Science Consortium Poster Session for student scientific research presentations. All high school, undergraduate, master's and PhD students working in conjunction with any Bronx Science Consortium partner institution (Albert Einstein College of Medicine, Bronx Zoo/WCS, Fordham University, Montefiore Hospital, and the New York Botanical Garden) are eligible to present their science research. Invited STEM disciplines include, but are not limited to, Biology, Biomedical Science, Chemistry, Computer Science, Mathematics, Physics, and Psychology. Posters previously used for recent undergraduate or graduate symposia or conferences, or regional or national conferences, are welcome, as well as newly created posters. Some additional interpretation in the way of a handout or abstract written for a lay audience is recommended as this will occur on free day at the Bronx Zoo. Professors, mentors, colleagues, friends and family are welcome to attend.
