Judging Criteria

A panel of impartial judges will review abstracts and speak with each student at Undergraduate Research Day.  Each student should be prepared to give a brief (no more than 5 minutes) presentation to the judges. The judges will evaluate the quality of both the research and presentation of the content (design of the poster, and how well you explain your research topic, particularly to someone who is not in your field).
