Student Research Days

Each year students submit research work in the form of a poster for evaluation by the Research Committee. Through this experiential learning process, they develop skills in research design, decision-making, data analyses, identification of key points, scientific writing and presentation skills. Of the many posters submitted, ten are chosen for presentation on the Annual Research Day. Each year three of these participants are awarded either first, second or third prize according to their combined performance on their poster and their oral presentation. Some winning student presentations are noted below:
