State House Undergraduate Research Day

On Friday, March 23, 2012, students from various disciplines represented USM at the Second Annual State House Undergraduate Research Day held in The Hall of Flags at the Maine State House in Augusta, Maine. This event highlighted the wide-range of research work conducted by undergraduate students throughout the University of Maine System.  The projects displayed showcase the many opportunities for engaged learning at Maine’s public universities.
