Fourth Annual Student Research and Creative Activity Fair Scheduled for Feb. 10
Omaha - The University of Nebraska at Omaha’s (UNO) Office of Research and Creative Activity (ORCA) is bringing back its annual Student Research and Creative Activity Fair for a fourth year.
Every year since 2009, the ORCA has helped students share their research and creative activity with the UNO and Omaha communities. This year the event will take place on Friday, Feb. 10 from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. in the Milo Bail Student Center (MBSC).
Nearly 150 student applications of a diverse nature, including posters, presentations and performances have been submitted for this year’s fair.
“This is an excellent opportunity for the campus and Omaha community to experience the exciting student scholarship going on at UNO,” said Scott Snyder, associate vice chancellor for Research and Creative Activity. “We welcome all students, faculty, staff, and members of the Omaha community to attend and learn more about UNO’s outstanding student scholars and artists.”
Final judging and awards for the best presentations will be held at 6 5:45 p.m. in the MBSC. A complete schedule of events can be found at http://www.unomaha.edu/orca/rcaf.php.
