The showcase runs from 1 to 4 p.m. with breaks between each presentation to allow people to come and go as their schedules permit. A detailed schedule of each presentation is on the web site.The showcase is being held in conjunction with the April First Friday. CRCA is hosting the event. The committee wants the campus community to be aware of the great research at the showcase and then spend time informally talking about it over hors d'oeuvres and beverages.
