Research Day Honors UW Undergraduate Students
April 13, 2011 — More than 300 students will present their research findings during the annual Wyoming Undergraduate Research Day from noon-5:30 p.m. Saturday, April 30, at the University of Wyoming.
Concurrent oral presentations will be held from noon-5 p.m. in the Classroom Building and poster presentations will take place from 3:30-5:30 p.m. in the Wyoming Union Family Room.
"The University of Wyoming and Wyoming's community colleges provide many opportunities for undergraduates to participate in independent research projects across many disciplines," says Bill Gern, UW vice president for research and economic development. "Undergraduate Research Day recognizes and celebrates the accomplishments of undergraduate student researchers."
Research topics will include agriculture, business, education, engineering, health sciences, biological and physical sciences, mathematical sciences, social sciences and arts and humanities.
Students, faculty, families, friends and the public are invited to attend the presentations. Presenters are expected to attend other presentations throughout the afternoon.
The UW Libraries provides a repository for electronic copies of the student presentations, and makes them available electronically through the UW Libraries Digital Initiative at http://digital.uwyo.edu/.
