Description/Abstract

Twenty students are selected each November to present their research at the State Capitol in March. We have developed a series of meetings, assignments, and events to help prepare the undergraduates to present their work to a lay audience and make connections between their work and topics of interest to the state. Over the course of five months students work with staff to revise their abstract and poster and rewrite their poster title to make it accessible to the legislators. After this experience, these students are great ambassadors for undergraduate research because they know how to connect with diverse audiences.
