USF showcase puts undergrad research and art on display
Like a grown-up talent show, 175 University of South Florida students on Wednesday will put their research, artistic and technical abilities on display at the annual Undergraduate Research and Arts Colloquium.
From 9:45 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Marshall Student Center ballroom, students will deliver presentations, dance, music and artistic performances. (Program here.) The best presentations and projects will be announced Friday.
Topics this year, according to a USF news release, range from the science behind therapy dogs to the cleaning systems of laser printers. A dance student will present a piece based on complex choreography in the "gaga" movement language of Israel. Computer engineering students will showcase a new technology to detect when stop signs have been toppled over in hurricanes and natural disasters.
