ACU hosts 6th annual undergrad research festival

Posted March 19, 2014

The public is welcome to attend the 6th annual ACU Undergraduate Research Festival, scheduled for Tuesday, April 1, in the Hunter Welcome Center from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. More than 160 students from more than 20 departments will give presentations, making this ACU's largest undergraduate research festival to date.

"Research that isn't shared with others has little value, so having an opportunity for our students to communicate the findings from research they've been conducting all year is quite important," says Dr. Autumn Sutherlin, director of undergraduate research and associate professor of chemistry/biochemistry. "Our festival allows others to see the exciting things going on in research here on a wide variety of topics."

The festival awards prizes in two categories. The first is Outstanding Presentation Awards in the following categories:

  • Arts and Humanities oral presentation
  • Social Science oral presentation
  • Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) oral presentation
  • Arts, Humanities or Social Science poster presentation
  • Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) poster presentation

Each of these awards is accompanied by a $100 cash prize.
