Graduate Research and Creativity Expo - 2019

The Graduate Research and Creativity Expo is an annual showcase of UNCG graduate students’ accomplishments to the Greater Greensboro community, and is a venue for students to communicate their research and creative activities with the public. Graduate students explain and present their work through poster presentations. Community judges circulate throughout the event to evaluate presentations and determine fifteen $1,000 winners.

This year three HHS students presentations were selected. Congratulations to all who participated!
