Last week ten undergraduate students wrapped up their fall work term with SNOLAB by participating in the Student Talk Competition, where they presented on topics ranging from radon assays to an analysis of the operations team at SNOLAB.
The SNOLAB Student Talk competition is not only an opportunity for students to share what they worked on during their work terms but also to practice important presentation skills and gain experience sharing their science with peers and colleagues.
“It is wonderful to see all the work students accomplish in only 4 months”, said head judge, Dr. Christine Kraus, “They all did very well in the presentations and answering challenging questions. It is so important for students to develop these skills – no matter where their paths will lead them”
A special congratulations to the winners of this term’s competition who stood out for their clear, well-delivered talks and excellent responses to audience questions.
First place: Jerry Lu, 3rd year, studying Mechatronics Engineering at the University of Waterloo
Second place: Peter Qin, 3rd year, studying Physics at the University of Toronto
Third place: Jeffrey Glasier, 3rd year, studying Physics and Astronomy at the University of Waterloo
Honourable Mention: Keegan Paleshi, 2nd year, studying Physics at Laurentian University
Congratulations to all of the students who participated in the Student Talk Competition! We wish you all the best with the next steps in your education and hope to see some of you back here in another term or perhaps in another stage of your careers.
