This year's UMBC Summer Undergraduate Research Fest or SURF is being hosted virtually by the College of Natural and Mathematical Sciences from August 5 to 14, 2020. This marks the twenty-third year for this event and the first time that CNMS has used the VoiceThread platform for an asynchronous conference featuring student-narrated poster and slide presentations.
We encourage faculty, staff, students, and guests to embrace this easy to use technology, which is allowing CNMS to continue the annual tradition of showcasing student summer research projects despite the COVID-related campus closure.
With its 24/7 availability, the Virtual SURF 2020 provides a ten-day opportunity to listen and view the variety of presentations. Visitors are encouraged to leave written or recorded comments or questions about the presentations. The student researchers will write or record their responses to visitor comments and questions, making this a truly interactive experience.
