The Lake Washington Institute of Technology (LWTech) Annual Applied Research Symposium (ARS) 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.
Date: May 13, 2021
Time: 5 p.m. to 7 p.m.
You may apply to participate in the Annual Applied Research Symposium by clicking on the button below. You will be asked to provide information about yourself, any co-presenters, your research mentors, and your project.
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.
Please check back soon for news about upcoming workshops.
If you are a student or faculty member and have further questions about the upcoming symposium or how to apply, please contact Michael Rodriguez for more information.
