Science Day 2012 presenters/attendees said they valued “the mixing of the large range of different interests at a single event,” "the opportunity to present to faculty-priceless,” and "the collaborative and community feel.” One participant even said, "VKC Science Day is one of the best things at Vanderbilt.”
