Attend Research Days to see what other students have to show

From Monday, April 24, 2017 through Wednesday, April 26, 2017, the Office of Research and Sponsored Programs (ORSP) will be hosting its annual Research Days event, which will be held in the Science, Technology and Mathematics (STEM) Building.

Come out and support fellow students and faculty as they present their research to a panel of judges. The three-day-long event will start out that Monday with a competition where presenters will have to present in front of a panel of judges for three minutes on their thesis of their research. 

On Tuesday, students, faculty and other attendees will be able to listen to the keynote speaker, Hannah Donovan, speak on real-world tips and how to design for content. Donovan is a design and product leader who currently works at Twitter. 

Following the keynote speaker are faculty presentations starting at 11 a.m the rest of the day.

On Wednesday, April 26, 2017 is when students present their research to attendees and fellow classmates.

Also, the winner of the Undergraduate Student Research Award will be given out to a student who has excelled in research and or creative work. The presenters of the three-minute thesis competition will also be notified of who has received first place, runner up and people's choice award of 2017 from Monday's competition. 

The deadline to be a student presenter at Research Days already past, but that does not mean students cannot head over to STEM to view the work other students and faculty members have done. Good luck to the presenters, and do not forget to have fun!
