Posters at the Capitol

Every February, undergraduate researchers from across the State of Tennessee convene at the State Capitol to share their projects with state legislators. In its 14th year, this event provides students access to state leaders.

“Research conducted at the University of Tennessee changes lives—from controlling a wheelchair with your mind to preventing blindness with an eyedrop. This worthy program offers an opportunity to celebrate students, faculty and staff at the University of Tennessee who are focused on addressing everyday problems with innovative solutions,” says Randy Boyd, Interim UT president. “The projects on display, presented by undergraduate students, represent significant discovery and achievements. As researchers and scholars, these students ask “why” and figure out “how” in their various disciplines..Student discoveries impact how we live, work and understand our world, and I’m proud to share their work with our state’s leaders and the public.”
