On May 7, 2012 the Bronfenbrenner Center held the first annual BCTR Student Showcase in Beebe Hall. The event featured posters and presentations by students who have been working with BCTR projects this academic year.

Nine students presented on diverse topics from various BCTR projects (see full presentation list below). The showcase was attended by 38 in all, including faculty, staff from the center and elsewhere on campus, grad students, and undergrads not presenting.

Student research assistants play central roles in BCTR projects, doing everything from data collection, cleaning, and management to analysis, interpretation, and dissemination of findings. Students learn real research skills that help them in the next stages of their education or career. Presenting gave students the opportunity to synthesize what they've been working on as well as practice their presentation skills.
