First Undergraduate Planetary Science Research Conference

Most of us in the Aptamer stream are probably biology majors and
do not think about planetary science. Here is an opportunity to explore
a different field.

The First Undergraduate Planetary Science Research Conference will be
held on Sunday, March 6, 2011 from 9:00 am to 5:00pm, in association
with the 2011 Lunar and Planetary Science Conference (LPSC), The
Woodlands, TX.

The Conference includes:

Panels on “How to Choose the Grad School Right for You,” “Alternative
Careers in Science,” and “Women in Planetary Science;”
Poster sessions where students will present their posters to other
students and to the scientific community;
“Meeting Mentors” will pair students with a scientist for part of the
LPSC meeting, so students can learn how to engage at a scientific
Opportunity to meet other undergraduate researchers, graduate
students, and scientists.

Undergraduate students currently conducting research in planetary
sciences, astrobiology, and lunar sciences are eligible.

To apply, please go to:
Applications are due: Close of Business, February, 1, 2011

Priority will be given to students of diverse backgrounds. Students
are encouraged to attend LPSC and the travel support includes
