Undergraduate Research Day at the Capitol Features Physics Major Jeffrey Murray
Jeffrey Murray, Physics Major and McNair Scholar, is one of 10 undergraduate researchers from Kansas State University who will get the chance to present their work at the inaugural Undergraduate Research Day at the Capitol, Wednesday, Feb. 12, on the first-floor rotunda of the State Capitol in Topeka.
Murray, senior in physics, Manhattan, will present "Visual cueing and feedback influencing undergraduate students' reasoning resources on conceptual physics problems." His faculty mentor is N. Sanjay Rebello, professor of physics.
The event is to showcase the research being conducted by students at the state's four-year institutions. Around 80 undergraduate students will take part.
"The purpose of Undergraduate Research Day at the Capitol is to make evident the many unique opportunities for undergraduates in Kansas to participate in cutting-edge research and discovery," said Anita Cortez, director of Kansas State University's office of undergraduate research. "Further, this event will illustrate the important role that higher education plays in developing educated and prepared citizens for the workforce and for the economic growth of our state."
