The event was an opportunity for students to show off their research, while improving their communication skills too.
The 16th Annual Graduate Student Research Poster Competition was held on Friday, March 24 at the Museum of Texas Tech University. Organizers said about 142 graduate students presented their research to judges from many different academic fields.
"The students get a chance to practice being able to tell someone what they do and why it's important," said Mark Sheridan, dean of the Graduate School. "As you look through the research that's being done here, you see some really innovative things. Creative things that have not been done before that are going to be solving problems, understanding issues that we need insight on, so that we can make the world a better place."
