I@Q: Celebrating Undergraduate Research
Inquiry@Queen's (I@Q), an annual conference that promotes and showcases undergraduate research at the university, is coming up on Thursday, March 9 and Friday, March 10.
All events are open to the Queen’s and Kingston communities as the conference celebrates the research achievements of a new generation of scholars as they present their research through presentations, posters and panel discussions at the Queen’s Learning Commons in Stauffer Library.
This year’s program includes 50 oral presentations and 26 poster presentations from undergraduate students across the disciplines, and the first undergraduate 3Minute thesis contest organized by the AMS. For the first time this year we are excited to have student researchers from outside Queen’s – from University of Guelph, University of Toronto, Carleton University and Bridgewater State University (New York).
Thursday’s keynote features Murray Dee, Seth Barling and their students from Rideau Heights Public School, Kingston, showing us how they “Create a community of knowledge builders: a pedagogical approach to inquiry in a grade 3 and 6 classroom” and James Fraser, Professor, Department of Physics, 3M National Teaching Fellowship recipient, 2017 who will intrigue us with “Science fiction or science fact: can popular sci fi movies motivate real research questions?”
All are welcome! No registration is required. The full conference program is available here.
