University's Developing Scholars to share research at annual symposium

Undergraduate research will take center stage at Kansas State University's 15th annual Developing Scholars Program Research Poster Symposium from 1:30-3:30 p.m. Sunday, April 19, in the K-State Student Union's Ballroom.

The event is free and the public is welcome. The program will include remarks at 2 p.m.

The Developing Scholars Program, offered through the university's Office of Undergraduate Research & Creative Inquiry, provides underrepresented students opportunities to research projects with a faculty mentor. Students receive academic, social and financial support while participating in the discovery and creation of new knowledge at Kansas State University. Participating students are from the university's Manhattan and Salina campuses.

"Undergraduate research has long been the tradition at K-State, and today research is becoming even more crucial for undergraduates preparing for the next step, whether that be graduate programs or professional job positions," said Anita Cortez, director of the Office of Undergraduate Research & Creative Inquiry. "Undergraduates in research are prepared to be innovative thinkers and problem-solvers. We encourage all undergraduates to seek out research opportunities while they are at K-State and surrounded by so much faculty expertise."

The following Developing Scholars in Physics will make presentations at the symposium:

  • Kyle Bayliff, senior in physics and chemistry, Maize, "Equilibrium Solubility of Gold Nanoparticles"
  • Jeffrey Murray, senior in physics, "Visual Cues and Outcome Feedback Influencing Physics Problem Solving in an Online System"
  • Benjamin Archibeque, sophomore in physics, "Finding What Impacts Learning in Introductory Physics"
