The 5th Annual Leeward Community College Undergraduate Student Research Symposium was held on August 14, 2018. Led by Dr. Kabi Neupane and Dr. Helmut Kae, fourteen Leeward CC students and one UH West Oahu student worked on a variety of research projects throughout the Summer of 2018 and presented their work with a potluck style lunch celebration. A special thanks was made to INBRE and The Innovation Funds for their financial support.
