Undergraduates exhibit research in Capitol
March 14, 2014
About 150 of the University of Wisconsin System’s best and brightest undergraduate students will fill the Capitol Rotunda this week to share their original research findings with legislators, state leaders, UW alumni, and supporters.
The eleventh annual “Posters in the Rotunda” event takes place from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Wednesday, March 12. State leaders will join undergraduate students and faculty advisers from UW campuses across the state for a day of events highlighting the positive impacts of university research in Wisconsin. “This research helps connect students to real-world problems,” said UW System President Ray Cross.
“The creativity and curiosity that propel the students’ academic research also help prepare these undergraduates for the workforce, or for pursuing graduate-level work. Ultimately, these experiences will lead to exciting, innovative careers that benefit the larger community,” Cross said.
