York University’s fifth annual Undergraduate Research Fair & Art Walk takes place on Wednesday, March 1, in the Scott Library Collaboratory.
Jointly sponsored by York University Libraries and the Office of the Vice-President Research and Innovation, the multidisciplinary fair celebrates the work of undergraduate student researchers and provides them with the opportunity to share their work by presenting a poster session. The juried research fair provides an excellent opportunity for experiential learning, as undergrads share their work in a friendly, cross-curricular environment.
The Scott Library Art Walk exhibition, which opens the same day, showcases the work of student artists or designers. One artwork submission will be chosen to grace the cover of the e-journal Revue YOUR Review (York Online Undergraduate Research), associated with the fair and prizes will be awarded to select poster session presenters.
Last year’s fair drew a large audience of students and faculty from across the York community, as well as friends and family of student-presenters. A performance by students from the Department of Music takes place at 12:45pm.
Everyone is invited to attend the Undergraduate Research Fair and Art Walk to celebrate York’s undergraduate researchers and artists. A reception follows the fair.
