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. Event attendees, including fellow students, faculty, and university administrators, are treated to an extensive display of undergraduate environmental research taking place at Princeton, and take part in celebrating achievements of the graduating seniors.
In 2013, over 80 students from 19 academic departments exhibited posters on focal themes including: environmental policy and practices; climate and energy; earth systems; biodiversity and conservation; environmental history and humanities; and water, disease, and human health.
For the 2013-2014 academic year, Discovery Day will take place on Friday, May 9, 2014 from 11:30 a.m. until 1:30 p.m. at the Carl Fields Center. For more information or questions regarding the event, please contact the ENV Undergraduate Administrator, Angela Petsis.
