High School Students’ Research Projects to be On Display July 26 at UNC

The public is invited to view research projects by a group of high school science students enrolled in the University of Northern Colorado's annual Frontiers of Science Institute.

The student scholars' work will be on display from 10 a.m.-noon and 1:30-3:30 p.m. Thursday, July 26, in the ballrooms at the University Center, intersection of 10th Avenue and 20th Street. Free parking is available in A lot, north of the UC.

Projects that students worked on during the six-week intensive institute included studying the physiological and psychological effects of Aquaciser rehabilitation on cancer survivors following treatment, researching the modification of the 9-anilinoacridine structure in the fight against childhood leukemia, looking at specific compounds in the venom of the sidewinder rattlesnake to be used as an anti-coagulant and assessing the competitive strength of two closely related grasses providing valuable information on performance of clonal vs. non-clonal species to develop natural weed control strategies and optimal yields for economically important crops.
