Two of this year's recipients were involved in SSPC's third annual Poster Sessions presentations in February at SSPC 2017 featuring Greencoat, in Tampa, Florida. The showcase allows college and graduate students, as well as recent grads, the opportunity to show current or previous research and make themselves known to their future peers.
Among the SSPC scholarship recipients who shared their research at this year’s Poster Sessions were Nguyen (“Finite Element Study on a Structural Steel Detail Susceptible to Hot-Dip Galvanizing Cracking”) and Silbert (“An Investigation of Improving Metal Adhesion of Cationic, UV-Curable, Bio-based Epoxy Coatings”).
