The University of Montana will celebrate the 10th anniversary of its annual high school health science symposium, which will be held from 9:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. Tuesday, May 20, in Gallagher Business Building Room 123.
Co-hosted by UM’s Center for Environmental Health Sciences and the Department of Chemistry, this annual event showcases research conducted by high school students participating in the indoor air quality program, Clean Air and Healthy Homes.
The symposium will feature oral and poster presentations by students from schools throughout Montana, Idaho and Alaska. As part of the CEHS Science Education Partnership Award, the program provides technology and training to students, encouraging them to collaboratively research real-world air pollution problems such as the health effects of radon, carbon monoxide and particulate matter.
The Montana Department of Environmental Quality and the National Institutes of Health’s Office of Research Infrastructure Programs provide major funding for the symposium.
