The Undergraduate Research Program offers a variety of information sessions and workshops associated with the Undergraduate Research Symposium. More information and sign-up links can be found in the Information Session and Workshop sections of our website or by using the links below.
Symposium Information Sessions - These sessions are designed to introduce students to the Undergraduate Research Symposium, the application process, and the day-of procedures.
Abstract Writing Workshops - The abstract writing workshop includes information on what exactly is an abstract, how to write one, and what information to include. If you already have a draft, you may also bring this to the session for feedback.
Poster Design Workshops - These workshops focus on how to design a poster, what information to include, and how to draw the attention of your audience through the use of a visual aid. Posters are a method of communication just like books, movies or web sites. The better your poster design, the more likely your audience will understand your project.
Powerpoint Presentation Workshops - These workshops address how to organize a Powerpoint presentation, how to design slides, and how to draw the attention of your audience.
Oral Presentation Practice Sessions - Practice your Symposium oral presentation and get feedback. We encourage you to come to the sessions regardless of what stage of the preparation process you are in. URP Staff, UW Staff, and PostDocs will be available to help you. The practice sessions are also a good opportunity to familiarize yourself with the technology in the room.
