Discovery Day is organized as an annual poster show each May for students participating in the Program in Environmental Studies and for students receiving senior thesis field research support from PEI and the Grand Challenges Program. The event provides students with an opportunity to display and discuss their thesis research methodologies and results, to exchange perspectives, and to propose solutions to the world's most pressing environmental challenges. This year's event was hosted on Friday, May 9th, 2014 at the Carl Fields Center. Visit PEI's Discovery Day for more information on the program.
