Event description

Description

On April 6-7, 2018, the Kansas Academy of Science will be celebrating the 150th (Sesquicentennial) Annual Meeting of the Kansas Academy of Science at the site of the first meeting of the Kansas Academy of Science, Washburn University (then Lincoln College) in Topeka, Kansas. This meeting will be a joint meeting with the Kansas Entomological Society; a younger society, but also one with a longstanding presence in Kansas that will be celebrating its 94th annual meeting. This two-day meeting provides an excellent opportunity for scientists of many disciplines and at all levels, especially including undergraduates, to share scientific discoveries with one another formally in both poster and oral presentations, as well as informally during our field trips and social time.

There will be two keynote speakers, Dr. Scott Hawley from Stowers Institute for Medical Research on Friday evening, and Dr. Rebecca Schmidt-Jeffris from Clemson University on Saturday afternoon. In addition, to our Friday keynote speaker and banquet on Friday evening we will have a brief presentation discussing the history of science in Kansas. The Saturday session will include oral and poster presentations, with special sessions on entomology and behavior along with the 19th Annual KAS Paleontology Symposium.
