Research In the Rotunda

On April 12th, 2017, 125 students and 50 faculty members from all across the state of Wisconsin gathered at the Capitol building in Madison to showcase their various research projects in the 14th annual Research in the Rotunda. Students from the University of Wisconsin-Whitewater once again got to take part in this exciting event, alongside students from 26 other UW-System Schools, including but not limited to La Crosse, Oshkosh, Milwaukee, Stevens Point, Parkside, and Rock County.

Various state legislators attended to show their support for the young minds in the research community. Among them was Representative Peter Barca, who got to take part in an educational game, the product of a research project conducted by UWW student Katherine Stull and faculty mentor Nick Hwang.

Other UW-W students who showcased their research at the Capitol include Alex Griffith, Brent Zey, Antwanette Bounds, Kiandra Davis, David Sackett, and Jessenia Zavala. The students got a chance to meet with local legislators and demonstrate that Undergraduate Researchers are capable of amazing results.

The research showcased at this event contributes to the UW-System’s reputation as a national leader in Undergraduate Research. Students and mentors throughout the state continue to pursue interesting and important projects, creating an even brighter future for academics and research in the UW-System.
