On March 31, 2014, the
College of Natural Sciences and Mathematics held IUP’s ninth annual
Women in Science, Mathematics, and Technology Program, which showcased the
work of female IUP students and faculty.
Prior to a poster session and an awards ceremony, 23 high
school students from the area, including students from Indiana, Marion-Center,
Homer-Center, West Shamokin, and United school districts, participated in a tour
of selected research laboratories before
attending the poster session and awards ceremony. Several student research posters were selected by a panel of judges for awards.
During the awards
ceremony, Estefania Alba-Rodriguez, a Biochemistry major with a minor in Mathematics,
was recognized as recipient of the 2013–2014 Patricia Hilliard-Robertson Memorial
Congratulations to all
students who presented their work at the 2014 WMST program!
