The University of Kentucky Office of Undergraduate Research and the Society for the Promotion of Undergraduate Research (SPUR) hosted the Showcase from 3-6 p.m. Wednesday, April 29, in the Student Center Grand Ballroom. Each year, the Showcase brings together undergraduates from all disciplines, their faculty mentors, and members of the community to learn about the various types of research being done by undergraduate students at UK.
This occasion provides these students the opportunity to demonstrate and discuss their specific projects and the professional advancements the projects helped achieve. It not only provides a great learning experience for the participants, but for the attendees as well, who gain more knowledge about the world around them, as well as the depth of undergraduate involvement in research at UK.
Approximately 200 undergraduate students will present projects, including 190 poster presentations, eight oral presentations and two table displays. Each participant has submitted an abstract of his or her work, and a bound abstract book of all who participate has been published and will be available at the Showcase.
