Noah Baudoin, a member of Pi Kappa Phi Fraternity, represented Northwestern State University at the 92nd annual meeting of the Louisiana Academy of Sciences on Saturday, March 10, 2018.
A junior biology/resource management major, Baudoin is a research scholarship recipient for the NASA-JOVE (Joint Venture) program through the College of Science and Technology. Recipients are awarded a stipend and college credit to be involved in undergraduate research while completing a degree in a STEM field.
Baudoin, fellow NSU students, and Dr. Chris Lyles, director of NSU’s JOVE program and an alumnus of Pi Kappa Phi, presented a research project at the conference. They delivered an oral presentation and a poster outlining the results of their research, titled, ‘The Degradation of Acetaminophen Under Aerobic Conditions.’
The Louisiana Academy of Sciences fosters discussion among peer groups of scientists, according to its website. “The annual conference is a supportive environment in which students will have an opportunity to hone their presentation skills, make connections with other scientists in their field, and become informed about study and research opportunities within the State.”
