Twenty-four undergraduates involved in six original research projects
were recognized for their achievements during the awards ceremony of the
Interdisciplinary Science and Engineering Symposium (ISE) held last week
at the as part of the campus-wide Undergraduate Research Conference at
The students were selected from a field of more than 180 undergraduates
who presented their research in poster presentations during the afternoon.
The ISE event was part of a weeklong conference showcasing the extensive
research efforts undertaken by UNH undergraduates. Each group received
a $500 award.
