Undergraduate Research and Arts Forum This Friday, April 10
Ranging from agriculture and animal science to business to humanities and performing arts, more than 750 MSU undergraduate students, from 14 colleges, will present their research at the annual University Undergraduate Research and Arts Forum from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Friday, April 10, 2015, at the MSU Union.
The event is free and open to the public.
More than 530 MSU undergraduate student research projects will be presented on a wide variety of topics including: the impact of social media; the difference between male and female brains; investigating the contradiction between autism and vaccines; the effects of room acoustics on singers with different levels of vocal training; and using technology to fight poverty, just to name a few.
The annual UURAF, co-sponsored by the Office of the Associate Provost for Undergraduate Education and the Honors College, provides MSU undergraduate students with an opportunity to showcase their scholarship and creative activity with faculty, peers and external audiences. Students can choose how they present their work, in the form of a poster, oral presentation or performance.
Monetary prizes are awarded to recognize exemplary achievement. One first-place award ($100) will be given in each section. First-place award recipients are eligible to submit their work for the grand-prize awards. Two grand prizes ($500 each) will be awarded to one program from the science and engineering categories and one program from the humanities, social sciences and communication arts and sciences categories.
