4th Annual Discovery Day

Take your learning to the next level and stop by Discovery Day!

You’ll have the chance to learn more about getting involved in undergraduate research at UTK as well as see posters of student research and creative activity undertaken in the spring or summer months. Discovery Day is a time to view what students are researching both on and off campus and learn about how to get started in undergraduate research at UTK.

The first 500 students to stop by the research displays will be given a token to exchange for power T hot pretzel!


This year’s event was held Thursday, August 30 from 11:00-3:00 pm in Hodges Library, 2nd floor common area.

We invite all, those already involved in research, those interested in getting started, or those who are just curious to stop by the event!
