We invite you and your students to take part in NSF's 2012 Online Video and Poster Competition where 180 graduate students from 114 different NSF funded IGERT interdisciplinary Ph.D programs communicate about their cutting edge, interdisciplinary research. They will share 3-minute videos and posters and discuss them with visitors who come to the site. See what can a lizard’s tail can tell us about robotic vehicle engineering. Is there a link between sleep disorders and neuro-degenerative diseases like Alzheimer’s? Can a bone layer on our teeth tell us about how our ancestors adapted to climate change? Find out the answers to these questions and many more!

The competition will be live from May 22nd - May 25th. You are invited to post comments and offer feedback to the presenters and to vote for your favorite presentations by "liking" them on facebook. There will be one public choice award given to acknowledge the importance of disseminating science to the general public. Other awards will be chosen by volunteer faculty judges and the community of graduate students, alumni, faculty and staff.
