The University of Arkansas at Little Rock will hold its annual Student Research and Creative Works Expo from 1 to 4 p.m. April 21 in the Jack Stephens Center.
The Expo features the latest research, innovation, creative projects, and student diversity at UA Little Rock. Undergraduate and graduate students from all majors and departments are welcome to present.
“We have taken steps to make sure everyone is welcome,” Dr. Michael Moore, director of undergraduate research and mentoring, said. “We have really tried to think outside of our own houses. It’s truly for everybody, not one select person or area.”
Students will present from 1 to 4 p.m., with judging happening from 1 to 3 p.m.
In collaboration with the UA Little Rock Department of Communications, McNair Scholars Program, and the UA Little Rock Graduate School, the Undergraduate Research and Creative Works Committee will host a two-day “Build a Better Poster” workshop series Tuesday, March 28, and Thursday, March 30, from noon to 1:30 p.m. in room 509 in the Ottenheimer Library. The first workshop will focus on how to condense research into the confines of a poster; and the second will focus on how best to present a poster to an audience.
“We want to help encourage people to participate and bring their ideas and give them some more training instead of having them do it on their own,” Moore said. “It’s really critical to provide students with the opportunity to take pride in their work, and then allow for their friends, family, and colleagues to celebrate it.”
Students with the most impressive research will be judged and awarded by the Undergraduate Research and Creative Works Committee. Not only is there skill development incentive for participating in this event, there is financial incentive as well.
The Expo is free and open to the public, allowing members of the Little Rock or campus community to attend the presentations.
