Photos by Damon Tighe

Hundreds of exhibitors and visitors crowd the Visitor Information Center and lobby in Bldg. 10 for one of the rites of summer — the annual presentation of work completed by NIH's cadre of summer science interns. More than 400 students, from high school to medical school, participated in the 10th annual Poster Day on Aug. 3, sponsored by the Office of Education. They hailed from 31 states, D.C., Puerto Rico and Canada.
