Eight students in Shoreline Community College’s Honors College presented their multi-quarter research projects at the 22nd Annual University of Washington Undergraduate Research Symposium at Mary Gates Hall on May 17, 2019.

The symposium is a showcase for student academic work, and participation is application based and competitive.

Shoreline students joined more than 1,200 presenters in the day-long symposium at the UW, which aims to facilitate research experiences for undergraduates that motivate understanding of concepts through their application to real-world problems and helps students to develop a deeper understanding of more complex materials.

“It’s an invaluable and engaging learning experience for the students,” said Terry Taylor, a research track faculty member in the Honors College at Shoreline. 
“Not only do they learn to conduct university-level research, but they gain the confidence of sticking with a project of this magnitude for multiple quarters and being able to defend their findings in a public forum.”

Participants create a poster presentation of their research findings and must be prepared to discuss their work with symposium attendees. Research topics cover a range of disciplines and are of the student’s choosing.

Shoreline participant Shradda Malla agreed. 

“The (symposium) environment was filled with curiosity and wonder and I felt fortunate to be a part of it. Our Shoreline Honors College posters were comparable in quality to those of the four-year students, with little to no difference. In fact, our posters were more carefully thought out, organized, and professional because of the time we spent perfecting them as a class. I would recommend this experience for everyone.”
