2022 Spring Undergraduate Research Festival

Want to learn from fellow students and hear what they are researching?  Then visit the 2022 Undergraduate Research Festival where over 100 students will be presenting their research! Taking place on Thursday, April 7, 2022, at Pomerene TDAI Ideation Zone in 3 sessions, the festival is a great presentation opportunity for students.

This will allow students to gain experience communicating their research in front of a new and diverse audience with a variety of academic backgrounds, as well as create a poster to spark conversations with Festival attendees. This Festival is open to all disciplines and the research presented does not need to be completed to present. Attendees will have an opportunity to learn from the presentation and broaden their knowledge of different topics.

Each session, 9:30-11:30AM, 12-2PM, and 3-5PM, will be structured with the first hour including poster presentations and the second hour being oral slide presentations.
