2016 Research Fair

The 2016 Undergraduate and Graduate Student Poster Sessions, a celebration highlighting undergraduate and graduate student research and creative activity, was held on April 12 and 13, 2016 as part of the campus-wide 2016 UNL Spring Research Fair. The purpose of this yearly event is to give students the opportunity to showcase their research or creative activity; to communicate their results to other students, faculty and staff; and to learn about other areas of research and creative activity. The event is sponsored by the Office of Research and Economic Development and the Office of Graduate Studies.   2016 UNL Research Fair – All Energy Center Participants
