This is A-State Connections on KASU.  I’m Johnathan Reaves. This is the weekly segment called “A-State Connections and Create@State: Making Connections That Count”.   The annual STEM Posters at the Arkansas Capitol takes place in Little Rock on February 20.  The event allows undergraduate students from colleges and universities across the state to participate in showing off their research on posters to the public, especially to state lawmakers.  Arkansas State University will be sending students to this event.
