URSCA 2018 - 4th Annual Undergraduate Research in Science Conference of Alberta

Sunday, April 29, 2018 from 7:00 - 9:00PM

Monday, April 30, 2018 from 8:00 - 5:00PM

The Undergraduate Research in Science Conference of Alberta (URSCA) is a celebration of Alberta discovery and innovation at the earliest stage of postsecondary education. Gone are the days when most researchers began their original research at the graduate level. Increasingly, student-focused, research intensive institutions are not only encouraging hands-on research in the laboratory and in the field at the undergraduate level but are also providing a wide range of experiential education opportunities, from independent and applied studies, to co-operative education and work-integrated-learning placements, study abroad programs and groundbreaking, publishable research with faculty mentors. Bright, liberally-educated minds are our future – and they are putting theory into practice in laboratories and in the field across this great province.

The University of Lethbridge is proud to have the opportunity to showcase the outstanding original research produced by Alberta’s undergraduate students at URSCA 2018. The keynote speaker for this event is Dr. David Naylor from the department of physics and astronomy.

Conference registration fee $60. Registration and abstract submission deadline: March 29. Visit our website for details.
