The seventh annual inter-Science of Learning conference (iSLC) was hosted in Pittsburgh, PA with the theme of “Navigating the Future of the Science of Learning.”  This conference offered students a comfortable place to present their research to their peers—instilling professionalism, networking, and intellectual discourse from an inter-disciplinary perspective.  It served as an excellent opportunity to build one’s expertise disseminating at conferences.  This year was my second year attending the conference and I was thrilled Gina De Naples, who is a first year Bridges Scholar, was able to join as well making it her first conference experience!
