Building Excellence in Science & Technology (BEST Early), Berrien Regional Education Service Agency (Berrien RESA), Andrews University Department of Chemistry & Biochemistry, and the Benton Spirit Community Newspaper are hosting the 2013 BEST Early Research Symposium on Friday, April 26, 2013 on the campus of Andrews University.

The symposium, which begins at noon, will showcase Berrien RESA’s Berrien County Mathematics & Science Center (BCMSC) students as they formally present research, engage in discussions about their experience, and demonstrate college-level lab techniques.

This event represents a capstone project for the BEST Early Research Program and provides a public showcase that emphasizes the research achievements of BCMSC seniors.

For over ten years the BEST Early Research Program has been engaging high school students in high-level scientific research and discovery that allows them to become excited about science and to pursue scientific careers. In addition to the possibility of students making scientific breakthroughs, the program acts as an ‘incubator of innovators’ by building the local research and development workforce.

Everyone is encouraged to attend. It will be a great opportunity to meet and talk directly with some of the County’s brightest students. Please RSVP your attendance as soon as possible by contacting Desmond H Murray, at 269-757-1641 or at
