The Princeton Environmental Institute hosted its 5th Annual Discovery Day on Thursday, May 4th. Discovery Day is a multidisciplinary poster session celebrating undergraduate senior thesis research on environmental issues. Sixty-five (65) students from 16 academic departments showcased their work, which was mentored by 47 faculty advisers.

Discovery Day is a culminating event for students participating in the Program in Environmental Studies and for students receiving research support from PEI. It is an opportunity for students to display and discuss their senior thesis research methodologies and results, to showcase environmental studies projects, to exchange perspectives, and to propose solutions to the world's most pressing environmental challenges. This year, the projects were categorized into several focal themes: climate and energy, energy technology and policy, oceans and the Arctic environment, water and health, biodiversity and land, urban sustainability, and culture and the environment.
