About the Symposium
The Science Symposium at St. Olaf College offers a time to focus on areas where emerging science and social issues converge, and to celebrate the research accomplishments of our natural science and mathematics students. The first Science Symposium was held in 1999 and has been generously funded each year by the Paul and Mildred Hardy Distinguished Professorship in the Sciences. The St. Olaf community and visitors are invited to presentations by notable speakers who will share their current research and their reflections on its implications for society. A poster session — during which students present their research — and small group meetings with the invited speakers offer an opportunity to see the world through the lens of science.
