Quinn Wragge of Crofton, NE and 56 other students presented 55 academic projects from a variety of disciplines at Concordia University, Nebraska's 9th annual Academic and Research Symposium on Wednesday, April 24.
"For students presenting at the symposium, they gain professional experience publicly sharing their scholarship as well as offering a setting for students to reflect on their experience and how those impact their lives going forward." said faculty sponsor Dr. Sara Brady, assistant professor of psychology. "Each project typically entails months of intentional work conducted beyond the classroom. Students gain the benefit of building relationships with faculty members, as well as understanding and appreciating novel aspects of their field."
Students presented a variety of semester or yearlong projects at the symposium, including poster and oral presentations in art, biology, education, English, health and human performance, linguistics, mathematics, neuroscience, physics, psychology, sociology and theology. Faculty members also supervised the students' work to ensure readiness by providing them with feedback and guidance.
