TriBeta is an honor society for students, particularly undergraduates, dedicated to improving the understanding and appreciation of biological study and extending boundaries of human knowledge through scientific research. Membership in Gamma Zeta is based upon academic excellence in the field of biology. The 4th Annual Science Fair is also supported by SD EPSCoR, which has provided funding for presentation supplies and awards for top projects in each category.
