ABERDEEN, S.D. – The public is welcome to attend Northern State University’s second annual Undergraduate Research Forum, set for 9 a.m.-12:30 p.m. Thursday, Jan. 17, at Williams Library.
NSU undergraduate students from various disciplines – from biology to elementary education - will present research through oral and poster presentations. Oral presentations will begin at 9 a.m. in the library’s Round Room and poster presentations will begin at 11 a.m. in the library gallery.
Student researchers will present results of their studies in the region, such as DNA extraction from an ancient bison bone from a northeastern South Dakota dig; a study of macro invertebrate life and pollutants in Moccasin Creek; and an examination of the many ways NSU has changed since its beginnings.
The forum offers a rare chance for the public to discover and discuss original research done in this area, said Dr. Alyssa Kiesow, assistant professor of biology and interim coordinator of undergraduate research.
