Undergraduate Research Day is on Friday, April 22

UT Permian Basin’s Undergraduate Research Day is almost here! This year the event will be held all day on Friday, April 22 in the Library lobby.

Several UTPB students will come together to present their research projects to their peers and faculty members. This year projects include everything from Public Database of West Texas Native Pollen Species, to water waste testing, and even video game development.

“I encourage all students to get involved with research if they are serious about their education. Students can learn from reading about research in a textbook, hearing professors talk about it, or they can actually do it! If a student feels like they are somehow not qualified to do research I want to empower and encourage them that they are qualified and their research topic can be anything from popular culture to traditional academic subjects,” said Dr. Rebecca Babcock, Director of Undergraduate Research at UTPB.

Students interested in getting involved with undergraduate research can email Dr. Babcock and follow UTPB Undergraduate Research on social media.
