An on-campus symposium showcasing student knowledge in the art of research methodology, scientific reasoning, and giving skillful presentations is scheduled for 8 a.m. to 6 p.m., Wednesday, Nov. 29 in the Campus Center Multipurpose Room (C208).

The symposium’s primary aim is to provide an opportunity for practice-based education through presentations on a variety of research topics, including: research methods, education and sociology. Ultimately, the goal of this symposium is to increase the number of UH West Oʻahu students with research presentation experience while demonstrating diversity in the field of research.

Undergraduate research has been expanding at UH West Oʻahu, in part because of a $746,278 National Science Foundation (NSF) TCUP grant (award #1461439) to advance UHWO Math and Science initiatives and programs, and to build undergraduate research opportunities for STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) students. The Student Research Symposium at UH West Oʻahu has grown from featuring one research methods class last year, to more than five classes this year.

Drs. Camonia Graham-Tutt, Laurie James, Michael Hayes, Stephanie Kamai, and Orlando Garcia-Santiago have mentored the student presenters. This event will also feature student poster presentations supported by the Kikaha Grant and is being sponsored by the Institute of Engaged Scholarship at UH West Oʻahu.
