New Quest award to honor excellence in science research

A new award will recognize the two best science research projects presented by students at Quest. Each Sigma Xi and Office of Research and Sponsored Program Scientific Research Award will include a $100 prize.

The criteria judges will look for projects that include a reasonable research question based on a review of the literature, a research design appropriate to the question, rigor in the study protocol (e.g., controls, valid and reliable measurements, etc.), appropriate analyses, recognition of the study’s implications and limitations, and the quality of the presentation at Quest—organization, communication and clarity.

For more information, contact Dr. Kestas Bendinskas of the chemistry department at
