The Department of Integrated Science and Technology will hold the 21st Annual ISAT Symposium on April 21st in the ISAT/CS and EnGeo Buildings. At the event, senior ISAT majors will present the findings from their respective capstone projects, which they completed over the course of their final year with guidance from faculty in the department. As part of the capstone, students use the skills gained from their classes to tackle real-world problems. The projects cover a wide range of topics from food waste on the JMU campus to methods for incentivizing governments to pursue solar energy.

The majority of presentations will take place in various classrooms throughout the day while some students will display their research in the main hallway of the ISAT/CS Building. Students in the Bachelor of Science in ISAT will present first at the symposium, followed by presenters in the Geographic Science and Intelligence Analysis programs. The event lasts from 8:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m.
