Baylor University Hosts Eighth Annual Science and Engineering Symposium Showcasing Diverse College-Level Studies

Baylor University recently hosted its eighth annual Science and Engineering Symposium, which featured more than 70 posters showcasing a diverse range of college-level studies. The event highlighted projects exploring topics such as gene expression and behavioral assays in the model organism C. elegans, host-symbiont interactions in the environment, embedded systems for robotics, sustainable practices on campus, and applications of machine learning in various science and engineering disciplines. Additionally, work from Middle School science classes and extracurricular programs was also displayed.

The primary mission of Baylor Research is to train students to think like scientists, with four main research areas. These include the Molecular Biology and Development Genetics Lab led by Dr. Antonio Herrera, the Engineering Research Lab led by Dr. Louie Elliott, the Environmental Lab led by Dr. Ben Holt, and the Sustainability Research Lab led by Nastassja Hagan.

Science Department Chair Jesse Young expressed excitement about the research presented at the symposium, noting that many young scientists had been investigating their topics for multiple years and had produced results typically seen at universities. The event showcased the hard work and dedication of students like David Wang ’24, Emily Beardsley ’25, Jack Champion ’24, and Edie Henderson ’25.
