Each year, we invite researchers and leaders from across our community to help evaluate the undergraduate presentations at our annual Symposium. Through Aresty programming, undergraduate researchers spend the year developing their public speaking skills and learn to contextualize their research. Students learn to explain their work to experts and non-experts alike, and the Symposium is their first real chance to put these skills to use.
Students are expected to be able to defend technical points of their projects but also explain complex concepts in clear and intelligent terms. Symposium judges help us ensure that presenters effectively communicate their research. We hope you will join us in helping young researchers through this journey of discovery.
