Scholars and Fellows Have a Big Showing at Student Research Week 2012

The 15th annual Student Research WeekStudent Research Week 2012 concluded last week with a record number of graduate and undergraduate participants. The week-long celebration of student research is coordinated by the Graduate Student Council (GSC) and provides opportunities for students to present, either orally or in poster form, the research they have conducted as students at Texas A&M. Student Research Week helps foster a culture of research by setting a high standard for student research, advertising the opportunities for inquiry at Texas A&M, and inviting the university community to participate in this exciting endeavor.

The theme for Student Research Week was “Embracing Your Inner Nerd,” emphasizing the passion for work, desire to share knowledge, and drive to change the world that makes student researchers unique.
