Week-Long Events

Exhibition of Undergraduate Research and Creative Achievement (EURēCA)

April 13-17, 2020 in the Student Union Ballroom and Hodges Library.

The University of Tennessee gives undergraduates the chance to pursue exciting opportunities in original research and creative projects beyond the classroom. The fruits of those labors are put on display each spring at the Exhibition of Undergraduate Research and Creative Achievement (EURēCA). Sponsored by the Office of Undergraduate Research and the Research & Engagement, this multi-day exhibition and performance event welcomes students of any major. See the full schedule of events for the 24th Annual EURēCA.

 

3 Minutes to Win It Research Challenge

The 3 Minutes to Win It Research Challenge is a competitive showcase of UT’s undergraduate researchers that takes place annually around Research Week. Centered around two stages of judging, students first create and submit a 2-3 minute video showcasing their research (and themselves!) via their personal YouTube accounts. Submissions are judged by a committee who then choose 3 finalists to advance to the in-person round where students will give a 5-minute presentation about their research to a live audience. Winners receive cash prizes! Learn more about how to enter here.

 

2020 events will be posted as scheduled.
