More than 140 students across 49 different majors will showcase more than 110 research presentations Tuesday at Iowa State University’s Ninth Annual Symposium on Undergraduate Research and Creative Expression.

The symposium is from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. in the Memorial Union. Students, faculty, staff and members of the Ames community are invited to attend the symposium for free to learn about a broad range of undergraduate research activities.

Undergraduates from all academic disciplines will share their research with the university community, families and any other guests through conference-style oral presentations. Presentation topics range from improving medical implants to climate change to landscape architecture.

Ann Smiley-OyenCQ, associate professor in kinesiology, will begin the day at 9 a.m. in the Pioneer Room of the MU. A presentation will follow at 9:30 a.m. and a poster presentation will be in the MU Gallery from 3:30 to 5 p.m.
