Undergraduate Research at the Capitol

| 0 Comments | 0 TrackBacks
Undergraduate Research at the Capitol is a semi-annual event that
highlights the research contributions of undergraduate students at Pennsylvania colleges and universities to our state legislators. The next event will be held on Tuesday, October 5, 2010, at the State Capitol in Harrisburg. Penn State is invited to send four posters (each poster may involve up to three student presenters). The Office of Undergraduate Education will coordinate Penn State's participation in the event.

Information about Pennsylvania's Undergraduate Research at the Capitol may be found at
 www.lorl.us/URC-PA<http://www.lorl.us/URC-PA>.

Students must be available to attend the event and are responsible for their own transportation to Harrisburg. Student participants should be prepared to talk about their research to legislators and other visitors, and those who are Pennsylvania residents are asked to meet with their state legislators on the day of the event. Faculty advisers and other college representatives are welcome to attend.

*Please share this opportunity with your faculty and undergraduate students and forward to Sally Butts (sbg108@psu.edu
<mailto:sbg108@psu.edu>) by Friday, September 10, the names of students who are interested in presenting a poster at the event, the title of the poster and a brief abstract, and the name of the faculty project adviser. More than one poster from a college or campus may be included.

Posters will be selected for participation by the Office of
Undergraduate Education. Posters not included in the October event will be considered for participation in the spring (usually late March or early April), should the authors wish. Undergraduate Education will coordinate the submission of abstracts and cover the poster entry fees.

Abstracts are due to the organizers by Friday, September 17.*

Questions may be directed to me at mbc5@psu.edu<mailto:mbc5@psu.edu>  or 814-863-1864.
