Local student to present research at Capitol
Thursday, March 7, 2013
Samantha Kempker, a Missouri University of Science and Technology student and Jefferson City native, will present her research at the annual Undergraduate Research Day at the state Capitol today.
Kempker is one of 11 undergraduates from the university who will exhibit their latest research projects to state legislators. Undergraduate Research Day welcomes undergraduates from all four campuses in the University of Missouri system and the day’s purpose is to inform Missouri’s lawmakers about research that is occurring at Missouri’s universities. Students have been working on their research projects under the direction of faculty mentors.
Kempker’s project is “Evaluating the Acceptability of GAMMA (Greeks Advocating Mature Management of Alcohol) Among Greek-Affiliated Students,” directed by Dr. Amber Henslee, assistant professor of psychological science.
