This Avenues of Scientific Discovery conference will be a day filled with hands-on workshops to introduce you to different careers in the life sciences. We encourage you to connect with as many people as possible at this conference. There will be many opportunities to meet students from NDSU who share your interest in these careers. We also encourage you to get to know the graduate students in the workshops you really enjoyed, they are a wealth of knowledge about the subject. Trust us, these graduate students want to know that you are interested in their topic and/or field of study!
