Student Research on Display in Madison

Published: April 15, 2016

From a mobile app designed to gather and share emergency information to a study of invertebrates that may signal water quality along the Lake Michigan shoreline, student research from the University of Wisconsin was on display Wednesday, April 13, at the State Capitol in Madison.

Posters group shotThe goal of the annual UW System Posters in the Rotunda is to increase awareness and showcase the value of student research at UW campuses across Wisconsin. The main audience is Wisconsin legislators who have a big say in the amount of financial investment the State of Wisconsin provides UW institutions.

During the welcome ceremony, UW System President Ray Cross told students that the process of undergraduate research puts curiosity into a scientific structure, and understanding that process is will be valued by their future employers. “You’re adding to their innovative capabilities, questioning what they do and coming up with ways to do it better,” Cross said. “That is such an important attribute.”
