Student Projects Day
Student Projects Day is a yearly celebration of the scholarly work of students across the University and an opportunity for our students to improve their skills in scientific communication.
No classes are held, but research presentations, panel discussions, short films, senior projects, interdisciplinary projects, artistic displays and performances are part of a diverse series of offerings open to the entire Widener community.
Science students working with faculty mentors present their independent research in formats that model the experience of presenting at a national conference. Several science courses incorporate an original, student designed laboratory or field study as part of the course curriculum.
These projects typically culminate in a poster or oral presentation on Projects Day. Still other courses require students to attend and critique presentations as part of their preparation as future scholars and professionals.
