This student symposium features 11 contributed student talks, 14 student posters, plus the finals of an intercollegiate challenge and several exhibits by student groups who have worked on MnSGC projects in the past year. Presentations for in-person attendees will be in Hagfors Center at Augsburg University. Remote attendees can watch oral presentations on Zoom, with posters being shown in breakout rooms.

The contributed talks are spread over three sessions – one starting at 9:10 a.m., one starting at 11:10 a.m., and one starting at 1:30 p.m. Posters will be spread over two sessions: an intern poster session starting at 10:20 a.m. and a general poster session starting at 2:40 p.m. Each poster session will be preceded by a viewing of 1-minute promo videos by the poster presenters.

The (in-person-only) intercollegiate challenge and exhibits will run from 12:00 p.m. to 1:20 p.m.

We are also pleased to offer a keynote talk at 3:30 p.m. about NASA’s Juno mission to Jupiter.

Students who received NASA Center Internships in the summer of 2023, and students who did MnSGC centrally funded in-state internships, will exhibit at the intern poster session in the morning.
