The goal of physics is to formulate theories, or “laws,”
which summarize our knowledge of the natural world. We don’t yet know
all the basic laws of nature,or how many laws there are.

Randy Kobes poster contest
Time: 9:00am - 2:00pm
Location: U of W Richardson College for the Environment, Atrium (map)
9th Annual Randy Kobes Undergraduate Science Student Poster Competition
This competition is a valuable opportunity for undergraduate students to obtain experience in presentations of research (a valuable skill to have, especially if a student plans to continue with graduate work).
Posters will be displayed in the Atrium of the Richardson College for the Environment. Over a period of 1 hour in the morning students will make short oral presentations of their research using their posters and answer questions for the judges.
Due to the wide range of topics displayed, the poster and presentation should be aimed at the level of an (informed) general public, as the judges are not experts in the fields presented. Examples of posters can be found along the west corridor of the 2nd floor of Centennial Hall near the Physics area.
Cash prizes will be awarded to the top three posters!
This competition is open to all undergraduate students who performed Scientific research at The University of Winnipeg under the supervision of a faculty member or with a faculty member sponsor (this includes summer projects and honour's theses).
To be eligible, the student should have been enrolled in an undergraduate program in the 2013-2014 school year OR will be an undergraduate in the 2014-2015 school year.
