Second Annual JCCC Science and Math Poster Symposium

Registration deadline is Friday, March 23, by 5 p.m.


Friday, April 27
JCCC’s Collaboration (CoLab) Center OCB 100
9 am – 2:45 p.m


The day of the Symposium:

  • Posters will be presented in sessions. We expect to have 4 sessions:
    • 9-10:15 a.m.
    • 10:30-11:45 a.m.
    • 12-1:15 p.m.

      The number of sessions or times may change depending on the number of participants. After registration has closed, participants will be contacted as to which session they will be presenting in.
  • Students should plan to stay near their poster and discuss their research or project with attendees and judges. If a poster is from an entire class, at least one class member should plan to stay near the poster.
  • There will be a check-in table near the door of the CoLab. Participants should plan to check-in at least 15 minutes prior to the start of the session, and will receive a nametag and location assignment for their poster.
  • Posters will be assigned a location that corresponds to a number in the program. Students should not change locations.
  • A judge or judges will give feedback on each poster. Judges will be identified with nametags.
  • A JCCC photographer will be taking photos for JCCC use.
  • JCCC Video Services will be available to film a 1-3 minute video that will be included in a digital archive of the event. Filming a video is optional.
  • Student may take their poster materials at the end of their session.
  • Feedback from judges and award certificates will be available at the end of the session.

JCCC students will present their research or projects in a conference-style poster session.

  • Research or projects may be from individuals, small groups, or entire classes.
  • Student projects or research may have been completed as any of the following:
    • an assignment within a science or math course at JCCC,
    • an honors project,
    • independent research or study.
  • Student work must have occurred under the supervision or guidance of a current JCCC faculty member between Summer 2017 and Spring 2018.

Judging and Awards:

  • A judge will visit each poster and ask a few questions about the research or project.
  • The judges are experts in their fields.
  • The judges will provide feedback on each poster using criteria in a rubric (PDF).
  • A certificate and ribbon (superior, excellent, and outstanding) will be awarded to each participant. Feedback from the rubric will also be given to each participant.
  • One poster from each session will be recognized with a special award.

After the Symposium:

  • A digital archive called ScholarSpace @ JCCC will be maintained. It will include each abstract, a picture of the poster and a video presentation (if the participant chose to do a video).
  • There will be an opportunity for students to provide feedback regarding the event.
