UA Little Rock announces winners of 2019 Student Research and Creative Works Expo
The winners of the 2019 Student Research and Creative Works Expo at the University of Arkansas at Little Rock were announced during an awards ceremony May 2 in the Student Services Center.
Students presented more than 150 research and creative works April 18 in the Jack Stephens Center during the premiere student research event.
Student projects were judged on the novelty and clarity of their research, the soundness of their methodology, the potential application of their findings, and the student's ability to explain their project to an expert and lay audience.
"This year's expo was bigger and better than ever before, and was part of the first ever Research and Creativity in the Rock (RCR)," said Dr. Abhijit Bhattacharyya, interim vice provost for research and dean of the Graduate School. "The RCR was an ensemble of four different college events and the expo. The presentations - posters, demonstrations and performance - were spectacular. Faculty, family, and friends turned out to celebrate the undergraduate and graduate winners of the expo in a wonderful ceremony on May 2."
