UW to Celebrate Undergraduate Research
April 24, 2009 — Undergraduate students will participate in the 10th Annual Wyoming Undergraduate Research Day Saturday, May 2, from 1-6 p.m. at the University of Wyoming.
Last year around 230 students presented their research, and this year an even richer display of undergraduate curiosity and creativity is expected. Abstracts of all presentations will be published, and the day will conclude with a dinner honoring the presenters and their families.
Concurrent oral presentations will be held in the Classroom Building beginning at 1 p.m. and concluding at 5:30 p.m. Poster presentations will take place in the Wyoming Union Family Room from 4:30-6:30 p.m. A complete schedule can be found at http://epscor-wise.uwyo.edu/ and Click on "Wyoming Undergraduate Research Day 2009."
UW and Wyoming's community colleges provide many opportunities for undergraduates to participate in independent research projects across many disciplines. Undergraduate Research Day recognizes and celebrates the accomplishments of undergraduate student researchers. The topics will include research in agriculture, business, education, engineering, health sciences, biological and physical sciences, mathematical sciences, social sciences, and the arts and humanities.
Each oral presentation will be 15 minutes long with a five-minute question/answer session following.
Families and friends, UW, community college and high school students and faculty and the public are invited to attend the presentations.
Presenters are expected to attend other presentations throughout the afternoon and should be prepared to stay from 1-5:30 p.m.
