Penn State Altoona holds Undergraduate Research and Creative Activities Fair

114 students participated in Penn State Altoona's annual Undergraduate Research and Creative Activities Fair (URCAF) held Saturday, April 13, 2019, on campus.

The fair offers students a chance to share their research projects and other creative activities with the campus community, friends, and family members through oral presentations, poster presentations, and performances in categories including arts and humanities, health and life sciences, internships, business, nursing, engineering, information technology, and performing arts.

"It was inspiring to see so many students excited to showcase their work and to see their peers coming out to support them. We saw more of that kind of student-to-student interaction this year than ever before," says Laura Rotunno, URCAF coordinator. 

The Undergraduate Research and Creative Activities Fair is funded by the Penn State Altoona Honors Program. First-, second- and third-place winners receive a monetary award. Winners of each category are listed on the URCAF site.
