The URIC Symposium accumulates in a final symposium wherein each student presents their science to the Merrimack Community and prospective employers. Students have the opportunity to network with companies interested in their work during lunch prior to the event. The symposium consists of a poster session display, followed by a five-minute ‘pitch’ contest where students are given the stage to present the work they were involved in at their internship or their research project and outcomes to the larger group. Pitch contest judging is open to the audience and guest employers, and prizes are awarded to the top three projects.
