2017 Student Research & Creative Activity Expo
Thursday, April 06, 2017
On an average day, the Ohio University Convocation Center's claims to fame include its basketball and volleyball games. On April 12, however, the athletes will surrender their home court advantage to art installations, scientific studies and a flying car—or two.
For the past fifteen years, hundreds of undergraduate, graduate and medical students have gathered at the Convo to present their original work at Ohio University's annual Student Research and Creative Activity Expo. Projects have included documentary film making, robotic lawn mowers, innovative theater costumes and presentations on the latest findings from medicine, astrophysics, education, and environmental science. Last spring, more than 800 students participated in the event. The atmosphere and success of the expo continue to bring students and faculty judges back for more, year after year.
