The purpose of Undergraduate Research Day in Texas is to showcase the experiences of undergraduate students engaged in research for Texas legislators and the public. The program will highlight how research conducted by undergraduate students positively impacts Texas -- and Texans -- with the theme Transforming Texas Through Undergraduate Research. Students will present posters about their work at the State Capitol and meet with legislators and their staffs. A tentative schedule for the day's events and a list of participants can be found by following the navigation links to the left.
Due to limited poster space at the Capitol, each general academic institution in Texas may designate up to two participants. Poster representative selection will be at the discretion of each institution.
Up to two abstracts will be accepted from each participating Texas general academic institution. Event organizers will provide participation confirmation no later than January 10, 2011.
