Penn State Brandywine will host its annual Exhibition of Undergraduate Research Enterprise and Creative Accomplishment (EURECA) on Tuesday, April 17 from 4 to 6 p.m. in the Tomezsko Classroom Building Lounge. At the event, students will present their undergraduate work to their peers and the Penn State community, as well as the public.
The objective of EURECA is two-fold. It provides a venue on campus where students who produce outstanding work can be recognized, and it is an opportunity for students to present their findings after many months of research, trial and error and discovery. Most students display their work on posters as faculty, other students, staff and outside guests circulate and ask questions.
The campus is celebrating the tenth anniversary of this event and will, for the first time, judge the presentations and declare winners. There will be judging in three primary areas and prizes will be awarded to the top projects. Special recognition will also be given to the top projects related to civic and community engagement.
The students are prepared to be questioned by attendees about their objectives, methods, overall conclusions and the relevance of their projects. This provides them with a unique opportunity to engage in scholarly discussions about their work, and will encourage their ongoing participation. The different categories of submissions include research in the areas of science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM), arts and humanities and social sciences; enterprise; and creative accomplishment, which includes literature, art and performance.
In addition to the poster presentations there will be oral presentations, short readings, artistic displays and performances.
