Turtle road mortality, restored and natural wetlands in the St. Lawrence Valley, an electromechanical actuator for a powered prosthetic leg, and a shoe-based sensor to identify activity levels in people with stroke are among the 100 research projects being presented at the 14th annual Clarkson University Summer Symposium on Undergraduate Research Experience (SURE).
Students will make presentations on a wide variety of topics on Thursday, July 28, in Clarkson University's Bertrand H. Snell Hall on the hill campus.
The young researchers will make oral presentations from 9-11:45 a.m. and 2:45-4:15 p.m., with welcoming comments at 8:45 a.m., and a poster session from 1-2:30 p.m. The public is invited to attend.
The symposium was established as a forum for undergraduate students to present the results of their scholarly experiences. The program's goal is to recognize and encourage students who are actively participating in various research and projects.
Clarkson University launches leaders into the global economy. One in six alumni already leads as a CEO, VP or equivalent senior executive of a company. Located just outside the Adirondack Park in Potsdam, N.Y., Clarkson is a nationally recognized research university for undergraduates with select graduate programs in signature areas of academic excellence directed toward the world's pressing issues. Through 50 rigorous programs of study in engineering, business, arts, sciences and health sciences, the entire learning-living community spans boundaries across disciplines, nations and cultures to build powers of observation, challenge the status quo, and connect discovery and engineering innovation with enterprise.
