Regional Research Symposium

Starting in 1993, the REU Sites in the region get together for a joint research symposium at the end of the summer research period. In 2010, 120 students from REU and other summer undergraduate research programs at the University of Michigan, University of Notre Dame, and Hope College gathered at Hope's campus for this 17th annual event. In addition to an afternoon poster session, two parallel morning sessions of students talks begins the day's activities. In this clip, a group of 25 students from the University of Michigan's International REU Site in Beijing China, located jointly at Peking and Tsinghua Universities, joined their colleagues in Holland, MI, for a joint simulcast session. The students who are being projected on the screen were listening and speaking from Beijing, while the video was being recorded in Holland, MI.
