May 22nd - May 25th: 2012 IGERT Video and Poster Competition

Interested in interdisciplinary science education? Check out an
innovative platform for online science competitions. Inspire your
students; share the link!
Go to:

We invite you and your students to take part in NSF's 2012 Online
Video and Poster Competition where 180 graduate students from 114
different NSF funded IGERT interdisciplinary Ph.D programs
communicate about their cutting edge, interdisciplinary research.
They will share 3-minute videos and posters and discuss them with
visitors who come to the site. See what can a lizard's tail can tell
us about robotic vehicle engineering. Is there a link between sleep
disorders and neuro-degenerative diseases like Alzheimer's? Can a
bone layer on our teeth tell us about how our ancestors adapted to
climate change? Find out the answers to these questions and many

The competition will be live from May 22nd - May 25th. You are
invited to post comments and offer feedback to the presenters and to
vote for your favorite presentations by "liking" them on facebook.
There will be one public choice award given to acknowledge the
importance of disseminating science to the general public. Other
awards will be chosen by volunteer faculty judges and the
community of graduate students, alumni, faculty and staff.

Visit the site and pass the link
to others through your collegial networks:
