Research and creativity go hand-in-hand among Penn State Brandywine honors students. Five honors scholars presented the findings of their undergraduate research at the Eastern Colleges Conference of Sigma Xi (The Scientific Research Society) on Friday, May 1, at Saint Joseph’s University and proved research is not just necessary, but fun.

The conference annually highlights undergraduate and graduate research in the sciences, engineering, technology and social sciences.
