RICHLAND, Wash. – Washington State University Tri-Cities students will present semester and course research and art projects as part of the Undergraduate Research Symposium and Art Exhibition Dec. 9 and Dec. 11-13.
Sessions will take place from noon – 1 p.m. each day in Consolidated Information Center (CIC) 120, with the exception of Wednesday’s session, which takes place from noon – 1 p.m. in the CIC Art Gallery.
“Students have the opportunity to publicly present course and research projects that not only provide hands-on opportunities to explore topics within their field, but also projects that bridge into community partnerships to solve real-world problems,” said Allison Matthews, clinical associate professor of psychology and coordinator for the symposium.
Some of the academic areas highlighted during the symposium include: the sciences, digital technology and culture, fine arts, history, mathematics and psychology.
Some of the projects featured during the symposium include:
- The exploration of American roots, including topics such as immigration, migration and ethnic identity
- Nutrient limitation of microbial and algal biofilms in Cascade streams
- Drawing and paintings that depict a variety of themes, including topics of expressing the evolution of humanity, nostalgia for the past or hope and/or fear for the future; and spirituality, mythology, or emotional state
