UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa. — The public is invited to view the approximately 180 entries for the annual Undergraduate Exhibition for Research, Inquiry, and Creative Activity from noon April 14 to 5 p.m. April 16.

This year’s virtual exhibition will be held on the online platform Symposium and will feature students from many academic fields. Their work will be communicated through research posters, presentations and performances. Students will also be presenting nonresearch posters through the engagement experiences portion of the exhibition. Entries will be available to view in a searchable format during the exhibition timeframe and can be found here.

The 2020 and 2021 Undergraduate Exhibitions were moved to virtual platforms due to the COVID-19 pandemic. In prior years, Penn State students gathered in the HUB-Robeson Center for an evening of camaraderie and faculty judging.

Though the event is virtual again this year, faculty judges will still be scoring each entry. Prizes are awarded for each presentation type and different academic disciplines, and University Libraries also will present the John Sr. and Kimlyn Patishnock Undergraduate Research Award: Excellence in Information Literacy.

The Undergraduate Exhibition is coordinated by Penn State Undergraduate Education, the academic administrative unit that provides leadership and coordination for University-wide programs and initiatives in support of undergraduate teaching and learning at Penn State.
