UW-Green Bay students to showcase research at March 12 state Capitol event
Sixteen UW-Green Bay students will represent the University during the 11th annual Posters in the Rotunda undergraduate research celebration Wednesday, March 12 at the state Capitol in Madison.
The students will be among about 150 UW System undergraduates, many with their faculty advisers, who will fill the Capitol Rotunda to share their original research with legislators and other state leaders. The main event runs from 10 a.m.-3 p.m., and will be preceded by a brief 9:30 a.m. welcome from new UW System President Ray Cross. Also speaking at the welcome will be representatives from Wisconsin Manufacturers & Commerce and the Wisconsin Technology Council, which are sponsors of the event.
“This research helps connect students to real-world problems,” Cross said. “The creativity and curiosity that propel the students’ academic research also help prepare these undergraduates for the workforce, or for pursuing graduate-level work. Ultimately, these experiences will lead to exciting, innovative careers that benefit the larger community.”
