IE Students Named Finalists in UGS Research Showdown

showdown-1Two Intellectual Entrepreneurship Pre Grad interns, Julia Caswell, visual studies senior, and Keun-woo Lee, neuroscience senior, are among the finalists for the School of Undergraduate Studies’ Texas Student Research Showdown. Caswell is also the winner of the Showdown Audience Award, as determined by student votes, and will also receive an iPad.

The Texas Student Research Showdown is a video and presentation competition for undergraduate researchers at The University of Texas at Austin. In the first round, students create two-minute videos about their research, which are voted on by UT students and judged by a faculty panel. The judges’ top three videos, along with the three videos that receive the most votes, continue to a final round in which students give six-minute research presentations to a live audience and judging panel. The first-round winner will receive an iPad, and the top three second-round winners will receive $1,500, $750, and $250 in scholarships to recognize their excellence in research communication. A series of workshops offers support at every step of the process, with the final round taking place November 15, 2016 at 3:30 p.m. in Avaya Auditorium (POB 2.302).
