Professor Prusa is looking to collaborate with a student, in the Summer of 2014, interested in 3D modeling software and digital fabrication. She needs a student familiar with this that could assist with navigating possibilities and best practices to the end goal of generating complex forms to create the next evolution of form in her work.
Friday, March 28th, 2014 FAU’s Office of Undergraduate Research and Inquiry (OURI) hosted its Fourth Annual Undergraduate Research Symposium! Students from all disciplines at FAU presented their research and creative projects for family, friends, professors, and faculty. Many first-year FAU students presented for their first time at the symposium. Congratulations to all!
The Council for Scholarship and Inquiry (CSI) is announcing the 2014 annual publication of the Florida Atlantic University Undergraduate Research Journal (FAURJ). The undergraduate research journal is an interdisciplinary, peer-review publication that showcases high quality undergraduate research at FAU. The FAURJ is published online through FAU’s Digital Library.
Florida Academy of Sciences Awards!
Congratulations to Andrew Kessler, Tokio Sano, and Amanda Alker. The three students won Best Undergraduate Student Presentation awards in their respective sections of the Florida Academy of Sciences meeting earlier this month.
Presentation Boot Camp!
Presentation Boot Camp was a two-day intensive workshop for students presenting at the upcoming symposium. It is designed to prepare students to present research concepts and findings more effectively to both technical audiences and the genera; public. Topics included: knowing and identifying the needs of the audience, highlighting big ideas and take-home messages, decoding complex concepts with diagrams, and displaying data in meaningful ways. FAU had 13 students graduate from this boot camp this past weekend and will never look at presentations the same way!
