Oct. 13: SPUR information and poster session
A SPUR information and poster session will be held from 4 to 6 p.m. on Tuesday, Oct. 13 in the Glass Pavilion. Every summer, the WSE students selected to participate in SPUR (the APL/WSE Summer Program in Undergraduate Research) work with mentors at the Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory on APL-sponsored projects, conducting paid research as SPUR Scholars.
Those who attend the Oct. 13 kickoff event can view posters about the research conducted by last summer’s SPUR Scholars and students can speak about the program with former participants and representatives from APL. Two of last year’s SPUR Scholars also will give presentations about their experiences.
Applications for the summer of 2016 are now being accepted. Register here for the poster and information event.
