Newark, OH (PRWEB) March 02, 2014
Ohio State University Newark will host the 10th Annual Student Research Forum on March 6th from 1 pm to 5 pm. The forum is an opportunity for students to present their school-funded research before a diverse panel of judges. The panel includes Ohio State Newark faculty and corporate representatives who will give valuable feedback.
Winning presentations will be awarded prizes. For some students, it also serves as valuable practice presenting in a formal setting before they present at the nationally-renowned Denman Research Forum. Other students who are still in the process of proposing research will also be doing their best to raise awareness for their topic.
“Some see it as great practice for Denman later in the month,” Says Dr. Nathaniel Swigger, Assistant Professor and co-organizer of the event. Adding, “But in the end it’s all about our hard-working students presenting their research accomplishments.”
Student Participants give a poster presentation followed by an oral presentation. Both are judged in separate categories divided between students who have completed research to show and students who only have proposed research to show. The Poster Presentation is the slightly less formal of the two types, where student researchers will be displaying posters and giving brief overviews while face-to-face with judges. Meanwhile, the Oral Presentation demands that students spend from about 15 to 20 minutes giving well practiced presentations from a podium. Each will have time reserved at the end for question and answer sessions. This event is free to attend, open to the public and held in the John Gilbert Reese Center on Ohio State’s Newark campus. Refreshments will be provided.
