The University of Pittsburgh at Johnstown is hosting the annual Symposium for Promotion of Academic and Creative Enquiry (SPACE) from noon to 5 p.m. Wednesday, April 9, in the Living-Learning Center on the Pitt-Johnstown campus. The event is open to the public.

SPACE provides a forum for undergraduate students to present their work in a variety of disciplines. This year more than 100 presentations and more than 150 students will participate in the event. Presentations of class assignments, internships, and senior projects in the form of posters or talks will allow each student the opportunity to explain his/her project and answer questions from the audience. Students will present on subjects as diverse as original works of creative writing, electrical engineering, and stream ecology.

The event is being sponsored by Conemaugh Health System and a Phi Kappa Phi Promotion of Excellence Grant.
