CURBx is a semi-annual event where undergraduate researchers can share their work and ideas in a TEDx style presentation. We select five speakers who will be given 10-12 minutes to share their presentation and should be comfortable presenting to audiences of over one hundred. This event gives undergraduates the opportunity to present via PowerPoint-style to their peers and professors. Anyone interested in learning more about this event should contact the CURBx chairs Olivia Watson at and Tim Johnson at for more information.

CURBx Fall 2020

Last year, we had five amazing presenters share their research on a wide variety of topics, ranging from genetics to politics. Due to COVID-19, we hosted this event using a webinar via Zoom. We made sure to record this event, so people who were unable to attend could still catch up on what was presented. We hope you guys learned a lot from this experience and big thanks once again to our presenters for sharing their work!
