Undergrad Research Symposium

Half of science is communication.  The results of your experiments don't mean much if you never tell anyone about them.  Scientists share their results through articles in scientific journals, talk to various audiences, and poster sessions at scientific conferences.

The undergraduates at KBS celebrated the end of their field season with a poster session.  Each undergrad made a poster about their project and then explained them to visitors as they filtered through the room.  Both Aaron and Allie's posters came out beautifully.  Allie's poster explained how certain things about a female's song may communicate her fighting condition to female rivals.  Aaron's poster showed how female house wrens can use their egg color to tell males they are in good condition.
