STEM for Everyone
March 7 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
Students are encouraged to submit proposals for 5-minute presentations about a STEM topic or existing research project, delivered in language that is easily understandable by the general public. This event is an opportunity for students to talk about the significance of their research and in non-technical terms that a non-expert in their field can understand. Presentations that address inclusivity of women and other underrepresented groups will be given priority during submission reviews. Creativity is encouraged!
The deadline to apply is February 25th and students who are selected to participate will be notified by February 27th. They will have the opportunity to sign up for a personal coaching time prior to the presentation session.
A robust audience really benefits the students as participants are encouraged to give feedback and ask questions so even if you will not be presenting, please plan to attend to support student presenters. This is a great opportunity for students to practice presentation skills, network with others from the UB community and regional corporate sponsors, and begin to build their professional network. Lunch is also provided to audience members. If you have any questions, please contact the WiSE coordinator, Danielle Lewis, at firstname.lastname@example.org
