This event allows undergraduate and graduate STEM students the opportunity to showcase their explorations and research findings in a formal and scientific setting to their family and peers.

This celebration and award honors Dr. Heather Bullen, a tenured analytical chemist who joined NKU in 2004, and passed away in 2012. She had an infectious smile and positive attitude that affected all who interacted with her. Her legacy lives on in her family, friends, students, and colleagues. A scholarship was set up in her name to reward first generation college students majoring in STEM, for their leadership and academic efforts at NKU.
