Section #1 Test (Heading 2) 

This is an example of what is possible on this page.  Attempt is to format a test page for training purposes.

Section #2 Test (Heading 3)

Looking to explore the addition of the following.

  • Bullet points

  • Web Links (click for UWA Home Page)

  • Photos

  • Alignment of text/photos

Looks as if adding the bullets and the web link is straight forward.  

This section is BLOCK QUOTE which looks to auto indent.  Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit. An potest cupiditas finiri?

Undergraduate Research Symposium @ Natural Sciences and Mathematics 

 

Independent research represents a unique learning strategy for many students. Undergraduate Research at NSM is an integral part of student learning. The intense immersion of undergraduate students in research helps them develop their scholarly pursuits. The College of Natural Sciences and Mathematics (NSM) Faculty are dedicated to helping interested students identify and approach areas of research. The faculty take pride in the process of refining their students’ interests into focused project topics. 


Held on Spring Assessment Day, the URS@NSM is an opportunity for undergraduates to present their research and creative projects to the broader university community. Undergraduates from STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) and other disciplines may present their current and recent academic projects, showcasing the diversity of topics, approaches and interests. The Symposium also serves as a resource for undergraduates not yet engaged in research. These students can learn how their peers developed their intellectual interests, current projects and faculty or community connections. Finally, URS@NSM is a portal through which students, faculty, staff, prospective students and alumni can witness the manner in which student projects enhance faculty work and also serve the greater community.

Date: UWA Assessment Day Tuesday, March 6, 2018
Location: UWA Campus, Hughes Gymnasium
Abstract Submission Opening Date: Wednesday, November 1, 2017
Abstract Submission Deadline: Friday, February 12, 2018

Keynote Speaker

The Alan Alda Center for Communicating Science empowers scientists and health professionals to communicate complex topics in clear, vivid, and engaging ways; leading to improved understanding by the public, media, patients, elected officials, and others outside of their own discipline.

The Center was formally established in 2009 with support from Stony Brook University, Stony Brook School of Journalism, Brookhaven National Laboratory, and Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory and is located at Stony Brook University on Long Island, New York. Training methodologies are inspired by the empathy, clarity, and vivid storytelling brought to life by Alan Alda and hundreds of experts on the PBS television show Scientific American Frontiers.

The Alda Center’s faculty specialize in: science, technology, engineering, math, medicine, journalism, communications, public policy and theater. This multidisciplinary approach to science communication training helps trainees tap into innate connections that come alive naturally when people recall a passion for their work.
