Nebraska’s first-ever Student Research Days Slam will be held April 13 in the Wick Alumni Center, Pascale Great Hall.
Lunch is served at 11:30 a.m., and the competition will follow from noon to 1 p.m. The event is free and open to the campus community, however, space is limited, so attendees will need to register.
This campuswide contest aims to share university research across the divides of discipline and expertise and to promote the integration of all disciplines, challenging graduate and undergraduate students to communicate their work in short, dynamic and engaging presentations. A winner will be decided by the audience.
Finalists and their areas of study are:
Fiona Callahan, insect science
Chinemerem Ogbu, biochemistry
Crystal Uminski, biology
Winifred Waters, chemistry
Bowen Yang, food science and technology
The Student Research Days Slam builds on the success of other Slam events on campus. The University of Nebraska-Lincoln Science Slam, hosted each spring since 2016 by the Nebraska Materials Research Science and Engineering Center (MRSEC), was the first event of its kind in the United States.
