The annual campus-wide URECA research symposium celebrating undergraduate research will be held on Wednesday, April 30, from 10 am to 4 pm at the Student Activities Center, Ballroom A. The event is co-sponsored by the Howard Hughes Medical Institute and the Center for Science and Mathematics Education at Stony Brook University.
As the only university-wide research symposium, this event provides a way for faculty and students to see what is going on in their own and other departments. The success of URECA’s Research Celebration relies on the efforts of faculty who provide time, resources and encouragement to participate. A central event is a large all-day poster session where students present their work to faculty, each other and visitors. The departments of English, History and Psychology hold concurrent symposia featuring oral presentations; the College of Engineering and Applied Sciences holds a Senior Design Conference featuring talks from selected teams in each of the engineering departments.
The Celebration was first launched shortly after the University became one of 10 universities selected nationwide to receive the RAIRE grant (Recognition of Achievement in Integrating Research and Education) from the National Science Foundation.
