UW-Eau Claire's Heather Hintz took second place and won a $150 cash prize for her work in the ninth annual Wisconsin Science & Techonology Symposium held earlier this month at the University of Wisconsin-Oshkosh.
Hintz won for her student poster titled “Pi-expanded coumarins with switchable propeller geometries.” Hintz worked under the mentorship of UW-Eau Claire's Dr. Bart Dahl.
The symposium included more than 50 unique student poster presentations on a variety of topics. The presentations included student work from across the UW System.
A panel of more than 30 judges reviewed the posters for intellectual merit, research methods, quality of the students’ presentations and significance or potential impact of the project.
