Annual Applied Research Symposium

Thank you to all the students who participated at the June 5th, 2020 Annual Applied Research Symposium. And thank you to all the faculty and staff who helped organize it! The symposium presentations were recorded via Zoom. See the presentations below.

The Lake Washington Institute of Technology (LWTech) Annual Applied Research Symposium is a chance for students to present what they have learned through their research and applied experiences to the community. The symposium includes poster, visual arts, and presentation sessions. Students from all LWTech programs are invited to apply to participate in the annual symposium.

How to Apply

You may apply to participate in the Annual Applied Research Symposium on this page (below). You will be asked to provide information about yourself, any co-presenters, your research mentors, and your project.

Application Deadline Has Now Passed

  1. Provide general information: name, email, and program (if you are co-presenting with others, add their names, and emails as well)
  2. Your research mentor names and emails
  3. Project information: title, abstract

You must have a Faculty Mentor sign off on your work before it is eligible to be considered for the symposium. Work with your mentor to review your abstract and title before submitting.

An abstract is a summary of your research usually presented in skeletal form, which concentrates on the essentials of a larger idea or claim. Your abstract should include enough information for reviewers to judge the nature and significance of your research, the adequacy of the methodology employed, and the nature of the results and/or progress to date. We strongly recommend that you attend an LWTech abstract writing workshop in January to help you get started. If you cannot attend in person, you may come to drop-in advising to gain additional information and guidance.

Abstracts must be between 100-300 words in length. Abstracts should not exceed more than 300 words.
