Natasha Shah’s presentation in the Sigma Xi National Research Showcase won as the Top Undergraduate Student in the Showcase!
Nearly 150 students presented their research online in Sigma Xi’s competition, The Student Research Showcase. The competition builds students’ science communication skills so they can convey the value of their research to technical and nontechnical audiences.
Presenters submitted websites containing an abstract, video, and slideshow. Judges critiqued how well the students communicated enthusiasm for their projects; explained the significance of their research; used text, charts, and diagrams; and responded to questions.
