SARASOTA, Fla. (March 28, 2019) – USF Sarasota-Manatee students are making final preparations ahead of next week’s “Student Showcase for Projects, Research and Innovation” at USFSM’s Selby Auditorium, 8350 N. Tamiami Trail.
The all-day program, scheduled for Friday, April 5, offers students an opportunity to present their research and projects, learn from peers and network with faculty and community representatives. Open to undergraduate and graduate students from any USFSM college, the annual event features dozens of poster and oral presentations, often accompanied by PowerPoint displays.
“The showcase has really become a favorite event on campus,” said Jenna Luque, PhD, an instructor of communication sciences and disorders in the College of Science & Mathematics. “It’s a wonderful opportunity for students to demonstrate their knowledge of a particular subject, and, in many cases, the students have spent months preparing for this day. The diversity of topics and depth of research is truly impressive.”
Topics vary widely and range from biology, economics and psychology to arts-based research. Each project requires a faculty mentor.
