About this Event

The University of Lethbridge is proud to have the opportunity to showcase the outstanding original research produced by Alberta’s undergraduate students at URSCA 2020. During this unprecedented time, we remain committed to highlighting undergraduate research in science, and although we can’t gather in person, there is nothing stopping us from moving this conference to an online format.

The Undergraduate Research in Science Conference of Alberta (URSCA) is a celebration of Alberta’s discovery and innovation at the earliest stage of postsecondary education. Gone are the days when most researchers began their original research at the graduate level. Increasingly, student-focused, research-intensive institutions are not only encouraging hands-on research in the laboratory and in the field at the undergraduate level but are also providing a wide range of experiential education opportunities, from independent and applied studies to co-operative education and work-integrated-learning placements, study abroad programs and groundbreaking, publishable research with faculty mentors. Bright, liberally-educated minds are our future – and they are putting theory into practice in laboratories and in the field across this great province.

Please note: We are presently investigating the delivery model for this conference and will confirm with registered presenters as soon as the details are finalized.

Keynote: TBC

The Keynote speaker will be broadcast live on Monday, May 25th. Details will be provided at a later date.
