In anticipation of the Annual Student Research Symposium, which is this coming Friday, May 8th ....
Jannett Dinsmore, BS Organismal Biology, Sp '09 presented her research at the 80th Annual Meeting of the Entomological Society of America Eastern Branch, which was held in Harrisburg, PA on March 20-23. If you missed her presentation at the Entomology meetings, she will reprise it (= re-hang it) at the Student Research Symposium this Friday.
Jannett was the only undergraduate student to present (and her poster was as good as any other). Jannett is in the far right.
In addition to all the talks and poster sessions, there was an associated outreach event where local insect enthusiasts set up tables in the hotel/museum lobby for people to see.
(Jannett is holding a giant cockroach" .... and nobody went "Eeeyewwww!" -- so refreshing).
Lots of pinned specimens, live bumblebees, insect themed kitch, etc.
(LIVE bees?! -- do they all pay the same registration fee, or is there a larval discount?)
For all those students out there looking for an additional course to take this Fall, Dr. Haselton's Entomology course this starting to fill up! Hurry and sign up NOW!
Finally, be sure to come to the Student Research Symposium, this Friday, May 8th from 5:00 to 7:30pm in the Library Quiet Reading Room (across from the checkout counter).
Thirteen Biology students (including Jannett) are presenting there -- come support their efforts! See you there!
Have a great summer.
