ANNUAL EVENT PROVIDES OPPORTUNITY FOR STUDENTS TO
CONDUCT RESEARCH, DRAW CONCLUSIONS, PRESENT INFORMATION

Students at Penn State New Kensington will have the opportunity to present their research in a public forum at the tenth annual Research and Creative Exposition, Tuesday, April 17 and Thursday April 19, in the campus Athletics Center.

Formerly called the Undergraduate Research Fair, the exposition provides students, under the guidance of a faculty adviser, with the opportunity to choose a topic, conduct research, draw conclusions and present their information in a public setting. The competition is divided into two categories: posters and oral presentations.

The poster category is designed to convey the project's significance to scholars in the field and potential significance to the general public. The student's written research is translated into a poster and the poster presentations will take place on April 17. Participants are judged on content, display and oral defense of their project.
The oral presentation category is designed to take written research and present it in an engaging 10-minute presentation. The oral presentations will take place on April 19.

Presenters are judged on written materials, topic significance, objectives, methods, responsible knowledge, invention, preparation and delivery.
