Smarti Gras: UTM’s summer celebration of undergraduate research August 14, 2019

2017 Smarti Gras Poster Presentations

The UTM Office of the Vice-Principal, Research, in collaboration with the Office of the Dean and the UTM Association of Graduate Students, is holding its third annual Smarti Gras.

Established in 2016, Smarti Gras celebrates the research conducted by undergraduate students over the summer.

Students from the Research Opportunity Program, recipients of the Undergraduate Student Research Awards and recipients of the University of Toronto Excellence Awards share their work in the humanities, the social sciences and the sciences through oral and poster presentations. Close to 60 posters and nine oral presentations will be featured.

The fun and festivities include a barbeque lunch with a vegetarian option, ice cream (while supplies last) and music. The barbeque lunch is free for oral and poster presenters, and $5 for other attendees. Barbeque lunch tickets will be sold the day of the event at the Smarti Gras registration table near IB 150. Quantities are limited!

The UTM Community is invited to register to attend and join in the celebration of UTMs young researchers.
