Judges sought for undergraduate research exhibition

UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa. — Faculty, emeriti faculty, staff, post-doc, and doctoral student volunteers who are experienced researchers are needed to serve as judges for the April 18 Undergraduate Exhibition at University Park.

Those interested in judging can complete the online judge volunteer form. The Office of Undergraduate Education will follow up and confirm by email.

The 2017 exhibition featured more than 250 posters and 350 student presenters, with judges playing a vital role in the success of the event and helping to further the culture of inquiry at Penn State.

Exhibition organizers are seeking volunteer judges in six broad areas of presentations: arts and humanities; engineering; health and life sciences; physical sciences; social and behavioral sciences; and course-based projects (all disciplines).

This year’s exhibition will also feature five-minute performance and oral presentations, in addition to traditional research posters. Judges are needed for all disciplines and formats.

Undergraduate students are still able to apply for slots in the exhibition at https://undergradresearch.psu.edu/exhibition/index.cfm. The deadline is April 1.
