The Miami community and the public enjoyed the poster sessions and oral sessions held at Shriver Center throughout the day.
Miami's Undergraduate Research Forum showcases the creative and scholarly activities of undergraduates who engaged in research over the course of the academic year. During the interactive posters sessions both student researchers and mentors celebrate and promote undergraduate engagment in learning and scholarly achievement. The event is free and open to the public. Visitors can walk by and discuss with student scholars how each unique project was conceived and developed and hear directly from students their perception of the impact these rich mind/hands-on research experiences.
On April 10, 2013 over 430 students were involved in three interactive poster sessions. Over 30 undergraduate presenters offered information about their work to an audience, speaking about the process involved in formulating a research question, deciphering results, and planning for future investigations. Oral presentations ranged in topic from a project conducted by Danyelle M. Barton and Evan J. Swhear, "Examining the effects of music on tests scores" to a report from Kevin K. Hawkins on the "Role of selection in Carica papaya genomic evolution". This event highlights the extraordinatory efforts of Miami undergraduate students in a supportive, collaborative atmosphere.
