2022 Posters at the Capitol

The Tennessee STEM Education Center is organizing “Tennessee Posters at the Capitol 2022” to be held Tuesday, February 16, 2022 at the Cordell Hull Building, 425 5th Avenue North, Nashville, TN. The competition is open to undergraduate researchers in the STEM fields identified in the attachment.

The Process:

Undergraduate researchers will submit a 150-200 word abstract to the Office of Student Research and Innovation (OSRI) at osri@apsu.edu. OSRI will select up to 7 undergraduate researchers and 2-3 alternates. OSRI will submit those names to the Tennessee STEM Education Center for final consideration to present their posters at the event. Once the students are selected, OSRI will help them along in the process of attending the event. Students selected for the poster session will then create a poster and plan for attendance using the following guidelines. (If the poster has multiple authors, only ONE student will go to the event). Please do not create the poster until you have been selected based on your abstract!
