Special to The Hays Daily News

Research conducted by nine Fort Hays State University undergraduate students will be featured Feb. 20 in the rotunda of the Capitol in Topeka with work from other public four-year Kansas institutions.

Sponsored by the Council of Chief Research Officers of the Kansas Board of Regents, the first Kansas Undergraduate Research Day at the Capitol will highlight student research experiences. The public is invited.

Research Day will showcase the work of approximately 80 Kansas undergraduate students representing each of the state's public four-year institutions. Students work under the direction of faculty researchers. Scientific posters illustrating the research projects will be on display in the Rotunda, and the students will be present from 11 a.m. until 2 p.m. to explain their work to legislators and visitors.

The projects are from a broad range of disciplines, including education, health, agriculture, aviation, biotechnology, energy, transportation, manufacturing, environment and social services. Students are from all regions of Kansas.

The event will demonstrate the unique opportunities undergraduate students have to participate in research at state institutions. Undergraduate students who participate in research develop important skills to further the economic growth of the state.

A competitive application process took place at each four-year university. Participants represent Fort Hays State University, the University of Kansas, Wichita State University, Kansas Sate University, Washburn University, Pittsburg State University and the University of Kansas Medical Center.

Fort Hays State University's Undergraduate Research Experience initiative supports high quality opportunities for student participation in research. Located within the Office of Scholarship and Sponsored Projects in the Graduate School, the office provided coordination for the statewide event.

Five of the FHSU students are enrolled in the Kansas Academy of Mathematics and Science, which is hosted by Fort Hays State University. FHSU and KAMS students who will attend in Topeka include:

Bentley: Ryan White, junior, a 2010 Halstead High School graduate, geography major.

El Dorado: Katharine Goebel, KAMS sophomore, anticipated 2013 El Dorado High School graduate.

Hays: Keri Caudle, junior, a 2009 home school graduate, biology major.

Hesston: Melanie Mabrey, senior, a 2010 Hesston High School graduate, psychology major.

Hiawatha: Brad Leupold, KAMS freshman, anticipated 2014 Hiawatha High School graduate.

Junction City: Laura Rook, KAMS freshman, anticipated 2014 Junction City High School graduate.

Sabetha: Laura Rokey, KAMS sophomore, anticipated 2013 Sabetha High School graduate.

Topeka: Hayley Disney, KAMS sophomore, anticipated 2013 Washburn Rural High School graduate.

Westminster, Colo.: Jeff Carter, graduate assistant, a 2012 FHSU graduate, biology major.
