SSERVI takes great pride in the annual student poster competition held each year at the NASA Exploration Science Forum.
The Student Poster Competition provides motivation, encouragement, and most of all, recognition to the most promising scientists of the future. The contest is always very competitive with high-quality submissions.
Selection criteria include the originality of the research and its impact to science and exploration, the merit of the experiment design and rigor of results, the visual quality and clarity of the poster layout—including accessibility to the non-expert, and effectiveness in communicating the topic during the lightning talk. Winners receive a $1000 travel grant. Selections were made by votes of a committee of scientists and SSERVI management.
The 2021 NESF/ELS Student Poster Competition winners were:
Katerina Slavicinska for the poster: Analyzing the Polycyclic Aromatic Hydrocarbon Inventory of Carbonaceous Chondrites via High-Resolution Two-Step Laser Mass Spectrometry
Dany Waller for the poster: Investigation of Magnetic Fields Associated with Various Lunar Swirls Observed in the Far-Ultraviolet
1st Place Tie:
Faris Almatouq for the poster: Utilizing Hexagonal Boron Nitride and Graphene Field Effect Transistors for Neutron Dosimetry
Kristoffer Sjolund for the poster: Hybrid Dust Mitigation Brush Utilizing EDS and UV Technologies
Congratulations to these winners and to everyone who participated in the competition. We look forward to seeing additional innovative student research in the next Student Poster Competition!
