Most of the presentation titles were nearly unreadable to the layman, but one didn’t have to read the posters to get the sense that some serious science – mixed with a dash of nervousness – was in the air.

More than 100 undergraduate students from institutions of higher education across South Dakota and the nation gathered at a symposium, held Friday at the Best Western Ramokota Hotel in Pierre, to demonstrate their findings from a summer’s worth of research.

Michael West, the head of the materials and metallurgical engineering department at the South Dakota School of Mines and Technology, said this symposium is the first event of its kind for South Dakota.
