The Student Research and Creativity Conference at Greater Allegheny

Overview:

Penn State Greater Allegheny holds two Student Research & Creativity Conferences in which all students are invited to present their research projects and creative accomplishments. These conferences are sponsored by Teaching International & the Honors Program. Students work closely with faculty advisors to develop their projects. Most projects are presented in poster format, but other formats may be used. Faculty judges and attendees vote on projects for awards in one or a combination of these categories: Honors, Teaching International, Creativity, Library Literacy, Racial Equity, STEM, Sustainability, and Audience Appreciation.  

Please note that all Honors Options require a poster or video unless the student is a freshman or sophomore taking a 400-level course.
