2nd Annual Student OSCARS with CCURI Colloquium
Friday, April 28
Oral presentations: 1 to 2 pm
Poster session: 2 to 4 pm
Coon Rapids Campus
Legacy Room (SC270), Student Center and surrounding classrooms
2nd Annual Student OSCARS
Wednesday, May 3
1 to 3 pm
Peterson Community Room (G202)
Both events are free and the public is encouraged to attend.
The OSCARS and CCURI Colloquium are intended to showcase the high-quality learning that students are engaged with as a result of undergraduate research, project-based learning and scholarship/creative endeavors specific to their field.
The OSCARS will showcase undergraduate research, scholarship and creative activities of Anoka-Ramsey students.
“We expect that this year's event to be even larger than last year,” said Kristen Genet, Anoka-Ramsey Biology faculty. “We hope to draw in community members as well as students who may not be presenting projects, but attend to learn more about the amazing things that their peers are working on inside and outside the classroom. We expect to have many different departments represented at the OSCARS.”
At the Coon Rapids Campus, the OSCARS will be held in combination with the spring 2017 CCURI Colloquium.
The CCURI Colloquium is a national event that will host about 60 students from community colleges nationwide to present their undergraduate research from STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) fields. Coon Rapids Campus attendees will have the opportunity to experience the broader community of research and scholarships that Anoka-Ramsey students are engaged in.
At both campuses, attendees of the OSCARS will learn about the undergraduate research that Anoka-Ramsey students are working on.
“If you are not presenting, this a chance to identify courses and faculty that you would like to work with in the future,” said Genet.
"I appreciate the support the college administration has demonstrated for the OSCARS on both campuses, so all of our students can continue to have an opportunity to display their great research and creative work at the college," said Angie Anderson, Anoka-Ramsey Communication Studies faculty.
