Students Present Summer Research

On Saturday, October 17, Caltech students will present the results of their research during SURF Seminar Day. This past summer, students embarked on 10-week research projects under the guidance of faculty mentors as part of the annual Summer Undergraduate Research Fellowship (SURF) program.

This summer, 318 Caltech students participated in the SURF program. Of those, 215 will present this Saturday. Projects cover a diverse range of topics, from zebra-fish development to spacecraft design.

Oral presentations will take place from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m., followed by poster presentations and a reception from 3:45 p.m. to 5:15 p.m., along the San Pasqual Mall. The full schedule of presenters, times, locations, and abstracts is available at
