One Picture: PEI's First Discovery Day

On Friday, May 11, PEI and the Grand Challenges Program hosted Discovery Day, the first annual poster session celebrating undergraduate senior thesis research on a variety of environmental issues. PEI and the Grand Challenges Program sponsor several competitive senior thesis funds to which undergraduates may apply for support of travel, research and supplies for field research on an environmental topic in the U.S. and abroad. Discovery Day was a culminating event for over 55 students from 14 different departments showcasing their work supported by 33 faculty advisors. It is an opportunity for students to display and discuss their senior thesis research methodologies and results, to exchange perspectives, and to consider practical, achievable solutions to some of the world’s most pressing environmental challenges.
