The Illinois Mathematics and Science Academy (IMSA) Student Inquiry and Research (SIR) students will showcase their work at 7:45 a.m. on Wednesday, April 25, at Fermilab. The program provides students with real-world experiences. Every year, IMSA presents IMSAloquium, which is a showcase for the research projects students worked on during their time in the program. These abstracts, posters and oral presentations are the highlight of the year spent at Fermilab. During the school year, students three days a month with their mentors.

This year, 19 students participated. Usually, every student has their own mentor. Anyone interested in being a mentor can contact Carol Angarola.
