During the four-day conference, over 1,800 students from over 350 colleges and universities participate in poster and oral presentations in twelve STEM disciplines. All undergraduate student presentations are judged by panels of experts, and those receiving the highest scores in each STEM discipline will receive an award during the closing banquet.
