University Honors College 2013 Undergraduate Research Fair Mar 27, 2013, 11:30 am - 2:00 pm

Please plan to join us for the University Honors College 2013 Undergraduate Research Fair on Wednesday March 27th.

The fair will be held in the William Pitt Union from 11:30am-2pm and will include BASW Senior and Bachelor of Philosophy candidate Stephanie Pinsky, who is completing her Honors Thesis under the guidance of faculty advisors Dr. Helen Petracchi & Dr. Sarah Goodkind and committee member Dr. John Wallace.

The 23rd Annual Undergraduate Research Fair runs as a “poster session.”  This is a kind of open house where participants display posters describing their research.  Presenters use any format and any additional materials necessary to convey their ideas.  No formal talk to a large group is involved.  Instead, the “audience” walks from table to table reading posters and discussing points of curiosity with the presenters.  Students who participate have found that in preparing a visual descriptive presentation of their work they further clarify their own thinking about that work.  In addition, the discussion that can develop with the “audience” as well as with other participants can be equally stimulating.
