Nearly 200 students are showing off months of work as part of NDSU's Student Research Day.
FARGO — North Dakota State University celebrated its Student Research Day Tuesday, April 18, as graduate and undergraduate students showcased their research and creative works.
From music, to pharmacy, to animal and plants sciences, to engineering, nearly all of the academic colleges were represented.
Faculty members spent the day judging each student on how well they communicated their research and how engaging their project was.
Graduate school coordinator Matthew Warner said the university wanted to give the students a platform to celebrate their hard work.
"A lot of creativity and innovation that happens here in NDSU and anytime we can showcase this that's an excellent opportunity for us," Warner said.
One student said he has big goals for his research on coatings and polymeric materials.
"The fire does huge damage to people's property and lives, so this is my goal to help people," says Siavash Mansouri.
Later in the day, a reception was held and 12 winners were chosen.
First place took home a $300 prize, while second got $200, and third received $100.
