Student research shines at annual state Capitol event
Sixteen UW-Green Bay undergraduates shared their research on everything from physics precision to college success and data security March 12, participating in the 11th annual UW System Posters in the Rotunda event at the state Capitol in Madison.
The event offers students the opportunity to tell their legislators about their studies, sharing important research on a variety of topics. It’s an experience that gives them a leg up in terms of both academics and future career success, students say — no matter what their path may be.
“I think there’s a lot of great things about this opportunity,” said sophomore Ben Lindberg. “I think presenting, trying to share what you’ve learned and trying to communicate that effectively to people is a great skill to learn. I think it’s great practice both for future academic pursuits and in my career.”
