Undergraduate Research and Creative Achievement Day (URCAD) is celebrating its 25th anniversary!
Due to the COVID-related campus closure, URCAD XXV will be held online again this spring. You will be able to view presentations, watch films, see video of dance and music performances, view artwork, and interact with presenters, during the asynchronous event.
Last April, 251 students presented their research and creative work, and thousands of visitors logged on the URCAD online via an interactive platform called VoiceThread. Nothing can compare to being together to be able to celebrate all of the research, scholarship, and creative work of our talented UMBC undergraduate students. Experiencing the live dance performances, being able to talk face to face with students about their research, or being able to take a ride on a kinetic sculpture are things that are meant to be experienced in person, and the energy of hosting URCAD on campus is irreplaceable. But last year’s online event provided a unique experience for visitors to explore the presentations and to interact with presenters in really meaningful ways. The online format also expanded URCAD to a global event- visitors logged on from as far away as Korea and the U.K.
Mark your calendars for the week of April 19-23, 2021 for URCAD XXV Online!
Applications for presenters will open in January.
Alumni Keynote Speaker:
Klaudine Wakasa Makokha, Trade Commissioner of Clean Technologies, Government of Canada.
