What is FRSES?
FRSES is a student-run symposium that provides an opportunity for Front Range students doing research in ecology to showcase their work and network in a friendly and supportive peer environment. Highlights of the event include a keynote address by an engaging invited speaker, a full day of poster and oral presentation sessions, an awards banquet to recognize exceptional student work, and a social gathering to celebrate the success of our participating students. The FRSES also features a lively lunchtime panel discussion related to the annual theme.
Why should I participate in FRSES?
Submitting an abstract to FRSES and presenting your research, in either a poster or oral presentation, is a great way to practice communicating science. This is a skill that students seldom get to work on so FRSES provides a valuable opportunity. Research can be presented in all stages of its development, from proposed research to completed research. The feedback gained from faculty judges is intended to help to improve your research design or your communication skills.
