Annual S.T.E.M. Research Symposium

Every spring, S.T.E.M. students and faculty are invited to highlight their research at the Annual Barry S.T.E.M. Research Symposium. This research symposium is aimed at engaging the Barry community in learning about and sharing in the excitement of ongoing discoveries and research within the Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (S.T.E.M.), Humanities and Social Sciences. Undergraduate students present posters related to their past and current research in biology, chemistry, computer science, health science, humanities, information technology, mathematics, social sciences, psychology, and physics.

In 2016, S.T.E.M. Symposium was enriched with S.T.E.A.M. Art Contest. The addition of the Arts is aimed at encouraging students (and faculty) to look at and approach S.T.E.M. through different perspectives and to develop their artistic side. Additionally, this approach aims to make S.T.E.M. more appealing and accessible to those outside of S.T.E.M.

If you are a high school student or teacher in the Miami-Dade or Broward area interested in attending the symposium, please contact the Symposium Director, Dr. Zuzana Zajickova at
