The Community Team of the Graduate Student Government would like to thank the presenters who volunteered for the Next Generation Scholars event! Also... a special shout out to Gary Johnson (Community Team Chair) and Tricia Olinger for their efforts organizing the NGS event!
Our presenters interacted with close to 80 Frankfort high-school students and shared their research interests and experiences, inspiring them to pursue higher-education pathways. This event not only served as an opportunity for graduate students to practice sharing their research with a non-technical audience, but also for these high-school students to get a first-hand look at the breadth of research and facilities Purdue has to offer.
We look forward to hosting this event again next year and strongly encourage any graduate students interested to join in this enriching experience, helping foster our next generation of scholars!
