Undergraduate Research Conference, Westminster


Undergraduate students from 10 universities participated in an event, hosted by UCLan, in which they displayed their undergraduate research at Parliament. The exhibition was inspired by the US National Conference of Undergraduate Research in which American students compete to present their work to the House of Representatives and the Senate in an event called Posters on the Hill. It was a fantastic opportunity to meet the students and staff that had been involved with these projects and really emphasised the importance of research-informed teaching.
