Heading to the Hill

Undergraduate students at the University of Utah will showcase their research for Utah lawmakers and the general public on Tuesday, March 5, 2019, from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. in the rotunda of the Utah State Capitol.

Research on Capitol Hill, now in its 19th year, gives lawmakers and the public a glimpse of the breadth of research programs at the University of Utah and reinforces the value of state-funded higher education.

Students presenting at the event practice engaging in public outreach and polishing presentation skills. By explaining their research in clear, non-technical terms to event attendees including legislators, junior high students and parents, presenters practice communicating their work succinctly and accessibly.

Presenters hail from broad disciplines across campus, including pharmacy, engineering and fine arts. Project titles include “The impact of contemporary media on human and environmental health” and “Characterization of an open-source 3D-printed robotic hand.”
