Annual Biology Poster Sessions Announced

Annual Biology Poster Sessions Announced

May 23, 2017 – As a culmination of the 11th grade spring Biology research project, students have created conference-style posters of their field ecology investigations. The project culminates with the juniors presenting their posters and findings during their final exam blocks. Here are the specific details of the poster presentations:

Location:

  • STREAM Lower Learning Commons

Dates and Times:

  • May 31, 8:30 AM – 2:30 PM (F, G, and E Blocks)
  • June 1, 8:30 AM – Noon (A and B Blocks)
  • June 2, 8:30 AM – Noon (C and D Blocks)

Please Note: During their Biology exam block, students will “attend” their posters, discuss their work, and answer questions.

Among this year’s investigations: the effect of gender (female or hermaphrodite) on the size of wild strawberry flowers; the efficacy of proscribed fire in preventing Douglas fir encroachment on a Puget prairie; Differing pollinator flight distance between two flowering plant species…and much much more.

All in the SAAS community are welcome to attend.  You can drop by any time, and stay as long or as briefly as you wish.

Fun fact: One visitor to last year’s poster session was so impressed with one of the investigations that he borrowed the students’ poster to take to a professional conference.
