December 1, 2017 - Congrats on Award-Winning Poster!

Maggie Pearce, a senior OSUTeach major in Biological Science, received first place in a poster presentation at the National Association of Biology Teachers conference in St. Louis in November. Maggie's poster was titled "Transgenerational Responses of Freshwater Snails to Fish Predators", which reflected her research with Dr. Barney Luttbeg in the Department of Integrative Biology. This research was a component of a class taught by Dr. Julie Angle in the College of Education, Health, and Aviation, where students conduct research with a science mentor and translate the research into an inquiry-based lesson for a science classroom. Congrats on your hard work and accomplishment, Maggie!
