- Presentation Opportunities
If you are an undergraduate researcher, chances are that you will be communicating your hard work in the form of a research poster. Research posters are designed to summarize information or research, while being concise and attractive to the public. They are essentially an “illustrated abstract.” The ultimate goal of a research poster is to publicize your work and to generate discussion among other scientists and professionals that are interested in your work. Posters usually include a mixture of text and figures. At a conference or research symposium, the researcher accompanies their poster while participants view and discuss it. There are many benefits of doing poster presentations as a student. For instance, presenting enhances your ability to communicate the key points of your research in a way that anyone can understand – an essential skill for every researcher! Additionally, presenting your findings can generate questions from the audience that can help progress your research. Overall, presenting your research is a testament to the hard work put into your research project.
