North Carolina A&T Hosts Undergrad Research Day
[mpoverlay]North Carolina A&T State University kicked off its Research Week today with its undergraduate Research Day, a showcase of student initiatives across five academic units of the university.
A&T students have analyzed the availability of healthy food in Guilford County, fluid-powered rescue robots, and paintings in the Biltmore House. They’ve explored the ergonomics of hydraulic systems, literacy in Malawi and Haiti, and energy use at West Wilkes Middle School. Other projects examine green fluorescent protein, sea surface temperatures in the Atlantic, microRNA biomarkers, and a number of projects that don’t lend themselves to short descriptions.
Research posters from five academic units and at least 15 departments are included. Throughout the day, researchers will present their posters to judges who will name winners at the end of the day.[/mpoverlay]
