In many ways, Student Showcase is a glimpse into the future of talent being developed at the University of Wisconsin-Parkside. Perhaps wetland-area research will protect and enhance the increasingly valued freshwater resources so prevalent in Southeastern Wisconsin. Maybe an emergency-management mobile app will save lives by providing key information at a moment's notice. And it's possible that a growing awareness around accessibility to healthy and affordable food will raise the quality of life for many.
Student Showcase is an opportunity to gain a better understanding of the value and relevance of a UW-Parkside education and the important element of student research. this year's event was also an opportunity to see research and creative activity that was part of the statewide UW System Symposium Friday, April 22, at UW-Stevens Point.
