The first session involved 29 student researchers giving rapid fire presentations summarizing their research on 1 slide and talking for 3 minutes to present. The second session was a talk by Dr. Jesse Wainright and Dr. Thomas Zawodzinski on large scale energy storage technical approaches. The last session was a brainstorming session for all participants in smaller breakout rooms to discuss the future of BEES.
