5th Annual Student RSCA Conference

Thank you to all of the students who presented at the conference! 

On March 3, 2017 these projects were recognized as the best oral presentation in their respective session. Each student or project lead will receive a $100 cash award. The projects are eligible to be nominated to the 31st Annual California State University Student Research Competition to be held at Cal Poly San Luis Obispo on April 28-29. In the event that students cannot attend the CSU system-wide competition, the runner-up project will be selected to represent that category.
