Furf 1660x870

 

This year, the Fall Undergraduate Research Fair is a little different.

 

Because of Covid19, we will hold the 2020 Fall Undergraduate Research Fair virtually. Here's the schedule for Thursday, Oct. 8, which will be held on Zoom. All students will receive links to attend via their Notre Dame email address. There's no need to register to attend, but you will need to apply if you would like to present your research.

6:30 - 7:15 p.m.: Undergraduate Research Opportunities in Chemistry
7:00 - 8:00 p.m.: Concurrent information sessions with organizations offering undergraduate research opportunities, as well as student research presentations and live Q&A
7:45 - 8:30 p.m. Undergraduate research internship information

 


Details about each session

 

All Zoom links for the session were sent to your Notre Dame e-mail on Thursday, Oct. 8 with the subject line, "Why should you do undergraduate research?" All you have to do is open your email and hop onto a session!

 

6:30 - 7:15 p.m.: Undergraduate Research Opportunities in Chemistry

Steven M. Wietstock, teaching professor in the Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry, will talk about research opportunities available to undergraduate students.

 

7:00 - 8:00 p.m.: Concurrent information sessions with organizations offering undergraduate research opportunities

The following organizations will have Zoom sessions so you can meet with their representatives:
