More Information About Undergraduate Research Day
Undergraduate students are invited to participate in the Twelfth Annual Wyoming Undergraduate Research Day which will take place in Laramie on Saturday, April 30th, 2011. Wyoming’s celebration of undergraduate research is open to all students who have completed an independent research or creative project in any discipline at Wyoming community colleges, UW/Casper College and the University of Wyoming. Last year approximately 300 students presented their research, and this year we anticipate an even richer display of undergraduate curiosity and creativity. Abstracts of all presentations will be published.
The University of Wyoming and Wyoming’s community colleges provide many opportunities for undergraduates to participate in independent research projects across many disciplines. The purpose of Undergraduate Research Day is to recognize and to celebrate the accomplishments of undergraduate student researchers. The topics will include research in the areas of agriculture, business, education, engineering, health sciences, biological and physical sciences, mathematical sciences, social sciences, and the arts and humanities.
Each oral presentation is to be 15 minutes long with a five-minute question/answer session following.
Students are also required to provide an electronic copy of their presentation or poster to the EPSCoR Office within two weeks after Research Day. The UW Libraries will provide a repository for electronic copies of the student presentations, and will make them available electronically through the UW Libraries Digital Initiative at here.
Presenters are expected to attend other presentations throughout the afternoon. Oral presentations will run in the Classroom Building from 12:00 p.m. - 4:00 p.m. and the poster session will be held in the Family Room at the Wyoming Union from 3:30 p.m. - 5:30 p.m. All presenters should be prepared to stay from 12:00 p.m. to 5:30 p.m.
