Students are invited to submit research project descriptions for a chance to participate in the Student Research Showcase, a global and innovative research presentation competition.
Sigma Xi, The Scientific Research Society hosts the showcase to help students develop their skills in presenting research online, an increasingly important skill in our digital-driven world. Participants
present a personal video, written abstract and technical slideshow. They receive feedback from judges, who are professional researchers, and can earn up to $500 for top presentations in graduate, undergraduate, and high school divisions.
The Student Research Showcase will be held March 23-29, 2015. March 16 is the final deadline for presentation submission, registration, or to volunteer as a judge. Students can earn pre-approval to present by submitting their research project description to firstname.lastname@example.org.
You can find more information at: https://www.sigmaxi.org/meetings-events/student-research-showcase
Judging categories include Biochemistry, Cellular & Molecular Biology, Chemistry, Ecology & Evolutionary Biology, Engineering, Environmental Sciences, Geo-Sciences, Human Behavioral & Social Sciences, Math & Computer Science, Physics & Astronomy, and Physiology & Immunology.
