ASU Student Research Projects on Display Nov. 23
Angelo State University graduate and undergraduate students will present the results of 53 different research projects during the ninth annual Student Research Showcase on Tuesday, Nov. 23, in the ASU Houston Harte University Center, 1910 Rosemont Drive.
The showcase will run from noon to 2 p.m. Nov. 23 in the University Center’s C.J. Davidson Conference Center and is open free to the public. It will feature poster displays of the 53 research projects conducted by students under the supervision of faculty mentors. The students will also be available to discuss their projects with campus members and community visitors. Refreshments will be served.
In all, more than 70 graduate and undergraduate students participated in the projects under the direction of more than 30 faculty members representing four of ASU’s academic colleges. The annual event highlights the breadth and complexity of ASU student research, and the 53 projects are the most ever entered in the showcase. Twenty-nine of the projects were completed by graduate students and 24 by undergraduates.
The projects represent research from the academic departments of Agriculture, Biology, Chemistry and Biochemistry, English, Kinesiology, Mathematics, Physical Therapy, Physics and Teacher Education.
The Student Research Showcase is sponsored by ASU’s College of Graduate Studies and Office of Sponsored Projects. It recognizes students’ contributions to the universal body of knowledge through their research and creative activities. It also provides student interaction with community members who are interested in research activities on campus.
