Undergraduate students are invited to participate in the Fourteenth Annual Wyoming Undergraduate Research Day which will take place in Laramie on Saturday, May 2, 2015. 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 350 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.
Presentation Groups - All individuals in the group are required to complete the information form, but only one abstract is required for the entire group.
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.
Families and friends, UW / Community College / High School faculty and students, and the public are invited to attend the presentations.
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.
Research Day is sponsored by the UW Offices of Research and Economic Development, Student Affairs, and Academic Affairs; and also by the College of Arts and Sciences, the College of Agriculture, College of Engineering and Applied Science, the College of Health Sciences, Wyoming INBRE, UW Honors Program, the McNair Scholars Program, Wyoming EPSCoR, and the Wyoming NASA Space Grant Consortium.
