Utah Tech University symposium to present research, innovation and creative projects

Open to the entire Southern Utah community, Utah Tech University’s 7th Annual Trailblazer Symposium for Research, Innovation, and Creativity will explore the wide variety of research activities happening throughout the region.

The symposium is set to take place from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. on April 21 in the Snow Math & Science Center, the Science, Engineering & Technology Building and the Gardner Student Center on Utah Tech’s campus. The event is free, and the community is encouraged to attend.

The symposium serves as a platform for members of the Utah Tech and local communities to showcase their research, innovations and creative projects. The event will feature a variety of formats of presentations including talks, posters, performances and displays, offering a range of opportunities for participants to share their research.

“Research is what drives professions forward and what drives learning forward,” UT Alumnus Kyle Lindsley said.

The symposium offers attendees the opportunity to engage in interdisciplinary discourse and explore the breadth of academic scholarship. The symposium aims to foster collaboration and forge new partnerships between the campus and the community while encouraging scholars at various stages in their careers to network.

“Research is the epitome of ‘active learning. active life,’” UT Alumna Cailin Foster said.

Utah Tech students, faculty, staff, alumni and community members who are involved in research, innovation or creative projects are invited to submit abstracts to present their work at the symposium. Abstract submissions are due March 31. For more details about the symposium such as presentation schedules and locations, visit academics.utahtech.edu/ro/symposium.
