Judges reviewed a total of 24 complex-systems presentations and chose seven winners at April's Student Project Symposium. Choosing the top three in each category was not an easy task! Thank you to all who participated to make this event a success, and a special thanks to Kirsten Wright for her hard work in organizing and promoting the event. Congratulations to our winners!
