The program on March 9, 2022, was provided by Arjun Sanga, President of WiSys, a not-for-profit organization that supports undergraduate research at Wisconsin’s 12 regional universities. Mr. Sanga explained his organization’s four areas of concentration; to connect student researchers to grants, help market their research ideas, inspire students to achieve and to foster a culture of innovation.
He provided examples of recent student research projects such as one that worked to develop sensors for early warning of landslides. Students also compete with others at their schools and between schools in the system with regard to the quality and importance of their specific projects.
