About the Program

The Winchell Undergraduate Research Symposium and Minnesota Academy of Science Annual Meeting provide a forum for undergraduate students to present research in the sciences, technology, engineering and math (STEM) fields, learn from professionals in careers they aspire to enter, network with peers within and across disciplines, and receive recognition for their accomplishments.

There are four main components of the event: a keynote lecture, oral presentations, breakout sessions and poster presentations. The event will generally run from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. with lunch between oral presentations and breakout sessions.

Each attendee must register individually. The system cannot process mass registrations from institutions. You must complete all registration questions in one sitting, as the system does not save work in progress, only completed applications. Be sure to have the following information when you register: your advisor's name and email address, whether you'll be doing an oral or poster presentation, and your presentation title and abstract. If you think your institution is paying your registration fee, verify that in advance and when you register, you must provide us with the name, title and email address of the person who approved payment.

In 2018, the University of St. Thomas hosted the event. The host institution for the symposium is rotated throughout the state. For a full list of past hosts, please visit the History page.
