Undergraduate Symposium in Sciences Features Student Research

Poster presentations of student research presented by the School of Mathematics and Sciences and the Institute for Green and Sustainable Science.
Students in the School of Mathematics and Sciences and Institute for Green and Sustainable Science presented their research in a poster presentation on December 2, 2011. Research projects ranged from a study of White-Tailed Ptarmigan in Glacier National Forest to an analysis of hydrogen evolution from ammonia borane and sodium borohydride.   Students in the School of Mathematics and Sciences learn science by doing science. In this photo, Paige Stamper (in the green sweater) presents information about her internships at Sherry Laboratories.   During the fall semester, they had opportunities to not only conduct publication-worthy research, but also to showcase their talents for the campus community. "These opportunities set them apart from other sciences students, and it is important that we support their academic endeavors," said Dr. Loren Bertocci, dean of the School of Mathematics and Sciences.       In this photo, Dr. Carl Lecher (left) and Tom Sublett discuss his presention on hydrogen evolution.   Student presenters and their publications were:   MATT BLACK: Beaver Canal Geomorphology and Relationship to Beaver-cut Stumps AMY BUENO: Internship at Covance: The Acrylamide Method GRACE DIBLE: Exploring Sub-lethal Effects of Endocrine Disruptors on Morphology and Behavior in Aquatic Organisms LAUREN GUNDERSON: Novel Bench-top Ligand-free Heck Reactions in Water SAM JORDAN: Move, Adapt, or Die: White-tailed Ptarmigan Changes in Distribution, Habitat Preference, and Number in Glacier National Park, Montana KYLE MCFERRAN: Does Honeysuckle Removal Affect Soil Microflora? TIFFANY SCHENDEL: Does Male Color Affect Female Sexual Behavior in Beta Fish? ANDREW SCHROEDER: Habitat Fragmentation Changes and the Influence on Diversity of Song Sparrow Behavioral Aggression NICK SOMMERS: Beaver Food Preference Based on Buffet-style Feeding Trials PAIGE STAMPER: Internship in Chemistry at Sherry Laboratories TOM SUBLETT: Quantitative Analysis of Hydrogen Evolution from Ammonia Borane and Sodium Borohydride AMBER SUITERS: Beaver Lodge Thermal Dynamics JEREMY VATES: Modeling Hydrogen Atom Sequestration in Siloxane Cages JACK WRIGHT: The Effects of Invasive Garlic Mustard on Microclimate JACK WRIGHT, SAM JORDAN, & MATT BLACK: Optimal Foraging in Birds
