A Celebration of Student Research & Creative Work

Friday, April 21, 2017 in Frost Library

Come see what Amherst students have researched, designed, written, and created this year at the fifth annual Amherst Explorations. Students will showcase their individual and collaborative projects in panel discussions, lightning talks, poster presentations, and performance. Refreshments will be served throughout the day. Read Campus Buzz coverage of the inaugural event for more information, or take a look at previous years’ programs: 20162015, 2014, 2013.

 “It’s really exciting and humbling to be a part of an academic community that is doing so much exciting, diverse work. Also, sometimes it's hard on this campus to make time to see what cool projects other majors are doing, and by being a part of Explorations, you can be a part of a bigger vision that is working to bridge this gap and bring a diversity of work to a wide audience.”

“Explorations provides a friendly environment to practice the presentation skills necessary for future academic and professional success. It resembles an academic conference but creates a much more intimate setting for conversations to take place. Being able to share with members of the community what I have worked on is very satisfying.”
