Student Research Conference 2016
About the Event
This is a free event open to the public in which faculty, undergraduate, and students from local institutions in the greater Houston area and surrounding cities will come to LSC-Kingwood to showcase their research work. This event will provide opportunities for community college students to understand how upperclassmen utilize the material learned during their journey toward their degree, and also for the undergraduate and graduate students to practice and prepare their defense to their respective committees upon graduation.
Moreover, the event will also be a wonderful opportunity for the 4-year institutions to promote their math, computer science, and engineering programs by having their recruiters on campus to share how their institutions can help our students reach their academic goals. In addition, the students from 4-year institutions will be invited to a panel presentation to share their perspectives on the importance of the courses offered at the community college level, and how not only do these courses impact and build a strong foundation needed to pursue an academic career in research, but also to society.
