Prepare to Be Wowed at Fifth Annual Research Showcase

April 02, 2019

HIGHLIGHTS

  • Many of these projects will be on display at the Fifth Annual Showcase of Undergraduate Research and Creative Endeavors (SOURCE) on April 12.
  • Students can earn up to two cultural event credits for earning all stamps on their SOURCE “passports.”

SOURCEROCK HILL, SOUTH CAROLINA — Winthrop University’s Office of Undergraduate Research will celebrate student scholarship in April with numerous presentations, performances, exhibitions and more events honoring creative work. From “Optimization of the FRESH Method of 3D Bioprinting” and “South Bay Salt Pond Restoration Project: Dream or Nightmare?” to “Play Ball! Predicting Baseball Players’ Salaries Using WAR and Other Variables” and “Using Social Media to Express Disenfranchised Grief,” you never know what exciting projects students will create next!

Many of these will be on display at the Fifth Annual Showcase of Undergraduate Research and Creative Endeavors (SOURCE) on April 12. Students can earn up to two cultural event credits for earning all stamps on their SOURCE “passports.”

This year’s SOURCE features more than 250 students and projects, representing at least 34 academic departments and programs from all five colleges, said Robin Lammi, director of the Office of Undergraduate Research. Presentations span the natural, physical and social sciences, the arts and humanities, business and education. There will also be live performances in the DiGiorgio Campus Center and on the Barnes Recital Hall stage. The Winthrop Galleries’ Undergraduate Juried Exhibition is also highlighted at SOURCE.

“This is a great opportunity for students to support their peers while learning about the fantastic scholarly and creative work taking place on campus. Students also can learn about opportunities in which they can participate in the future,” Lammi said.

SOURCE celebrates and encourages all facets of undergraduate research, which is considered a “high-impact practice” as identified by the American Association of Colleges and Universities.
