Undergraduate Research Fair 2019

Annual poster session showcasing physics research done by University of Toronto undergraduates.

Thursday, September 26, 2019, 2:30-4:00pm in MP125 - Undergraduate Lounge

Results of undergraduate student research projects in Physics from the summer of 2019, and the 2018/19 academic year.  Posters will be judged, small prizes will be awarded at 3:45pm.  At that time some Undergraduate scholarships from the previous year will also be awarded.
