Undergraduate Research at the Capitol

Call for undergraduates to submit their research for potential presentation at the state capitol in October.

Undergraduate Research at the Capitol is a semi-annual event that highlights the research contributions of undergraduate students at Pennsylvania colleges and universities to our state legislators. The next event will be held on Tuesday, October 5, 2010, at the State Capitol in Harrisburg. Penn State is invited to send four posters (each poster may involve up to three student presenters). The Office of Undergraduate Education will coordinate Penn State's participation in the event.

Information about Pennsylvania's Undergraduate Research at the Capitol may be found at http://www.pasen.gov/URCPA/. Students must be available to attend the event and are responsible for their own transportation to Harrisburg. Student participants should be prepared to talk about their research to legislators and other visitors, and those who are Pennsylvania residents are asked to meet with their state legislators on the day of the event. Faculty advisers and other college representatives are welcome to attend.

Posters not included in the October event will be considered for participation in the spring (usually late March or early April), should the authors wish. Undergraduate Education will coordinate the submission of abstracts and cover the poster entry fees.

Abstracts are due to the organizers by Friday, September 17.
