Undergraduate scholars are ready to share their discoveries – and their summer experiences – at the 2021 Undergraduate Student Research Awards (USRA) Virtual Poster Session, beginning November 15.
The annual poster session will be held on Microsoft Teams and run from November 15 to 19. McMaster community members can “drop by” any time during that week to view posters created by USRA presenters.
Visitors to the digital session can explore research looking at various topics – from youth and social media during the pandemic, to the Spotify algorithm and genre diversity, to using eye tracking technology to examine indicators of Autism.

The poster session provides a couple of ways for viewers to connect with the undergrad scholars:
The USRA program provides an opportunity for students to experience graduate student life through hands-on research activities that span 15 weeks each summer. Activities are intended to deepen a student’s learning about a substantive area, as well as enhance their research skills.
The USRA Virtual Poster Session is coordinated by the School of Graduate Studies.
