The University of Pittsburgh at Johnstown is hosting the annual Symposium for Promotion of Academic and Creative Enquiries (SPACE) from Noon to 5 p.m. Wednesday, April 11, in the Living/Learning Center on the UPJ campus.
The all-campus event is being sponsored this year by Conemaugh Health System as well as a Phi Kappa Phi Promotion of Excellence Grant.
UPJ SPACE provides a forum for undergraduate students to present their work in a variety of disciplines. 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. In previous years, students have presented on subjects as diverse as creative writing, bridge design, international research, mathematical research, geographic mapping of social issues, emotions in music, and stream ecology in this symposium that celebrates undergraduate research and creativity.
