Closing ceremony invitation:

Invitation to the closing ceremony of Project SMART Summer Institute-2018
It is amazing how fast the time flies - we are already into the third week of Project SMART (Science and Mathematics Achievement through Research Training – Summer Institute-2018, and it’s already time to plan for the final day when the students showcase what they have learnt during the four weeks here at UNH. This is the 27th year of the program, which has strived to attract a highly diverse group of participants from far and wide for an unforgettable experience of learning science and developing life-long friendships in the beautiful setting of UNH. With further focus on increasing the diversity of students participating in the program; this year’s first is students from the Navajo Nation, Utah and, India and Thailand; in addition to repeat attendance by students from Alaska on one side and Greece, Jordan and China on the other. Of course, there are students from NH, ME, MA and CT, PA, CA, NY, etc.; more than 50% of the participants are women.
The closing ceremony of Project SMART-2018 is scheduled for Friday, July 27 from 11:00 AM to 2:00 PM in the atrium of Morse Hall. It is an opportunity for the participants to give a glimpse of what they have learned, and what they think of the program. All students will be presenting posters in a scientific conference style session involving a very diverse group of topics. You will be amazed at what they have accomplished during the brief stay at UNH. The program offered experience in two modules (Biotechnology and Nanotechnology, and Marine and Environmental Science), with a glimpse of Space Science module via a balloon launch. Many parents and teachers of students from New England and some other US and foreign locations will be there along with the staff of Project SMART.
Please let me know if you need any further information about the program.
Attached are brief program details for Friday the 27th of July. Light refreshments will be served. Parking will be in C-Lot or H-Lot.
Thank you and we look forward to seeing you on the 27th of July
