Students participating in the North Dakota Governor’s Schools program will showcase their work on the last day, Friday, July 10.
The program, which started June 7, is offered to North Dakota sophomores and juniors who are academic high achievers. The students live on campus and work with NDSU faculty members in architecture and landscape architecture, engineering, English studies, information technology, experimental science, mathematics or visual arts. They also participate in co-curricular activities, such as ethics and fine arts classes, and service projects.
“This year’s class of 92 students is the largest in Governor’s School history,” said Jeff Boyer, director of North Dakota Governor’s Schools. “I’m impressed by the talent of the students and what they have been able to accomplish in five weeks.”
Students studying science and engineering disciplines will present their research through poster sessions from 1:30 to 3 p.m. in the Memorial Union Prairie and Rose rooms. They will cover more than 20 topics, including language development in children, prevention and treatment of Alzheimer’s disease and 3-D printing.
The work of visual arts students will be an exhibit in the Memorial Union Gallery from 2 to 4:30 p.m. Students studying English, information technology, math and architecture and landscape architecture will display their work at 3 p.m. in the Memorial Union Hidatsa room.
The closing ceremony is scheduled for 5 p.m. in the Memorial Union Ballroom. During the ceremony, students will reflect upon their experiences and receive completion certificates.
North Dakota Governor’s School has been held at NDSU since 1990.
As a student-focused, land-grant, research university, we serve our citizens.
