The third year of BUEE wrapped up on August 11, when students presented their final projects, and celebrated a summer of research.  Our six on-site students were joined by Lily Fillwalk, our first remote participant, who presented her work exploring the microbial diversity of green roof infrastructure in NYC.  Awards for the best research poster and the ‘People’s Choice Award’ were won by Caroline Troy and Lauryn Tham, both from the Gosnell/Zarnoch group – congrats to all!

04/20/2021 – BUEE is back!

We’ve just received word that BUEE will take place in Summer 2021 – many thanks for CUNY administration for making this possible.  This year, we’ll welcome students from California, Indiana, Maryland, New Jersey, New York and Puerto Rico, all of whom received deferred admission to the 2020 program.  While the program will be tweaked given ongoing concerns about COVID-19, this year’s students will again be conducting research on the ecology and environment of urban NYC – new discoveries await!

Congratulations to our first cohort of BUEE students!

BUEE Science Day closed with a bang on August 8, when our 2018 summer program students presented the results of their research to faculty, students, and our community partners.  BUEE students will return to their home institutions after a truly impressive summer of research – make us proud!
