Students at RIT showed off what they've learned today by sharing their research projects with other students, faculty, staff and alumni.

It’s part of the 23rd annual Undergraduate Research Symposium. Close to 200 students took part.

One of the keynote speakers, who is also an RIT alumnus, spoke with us. He does research himself and says there's one important thing he tells any student doing research. Rick Kittles said, “Some of the best scientists are those that are the best storytellers. So you have to get folks really excited about what you're doing so they can invest in it. Either as a research subject or to some board to get money for your research.”

Some of the presentations included high power microwave plasma system for material processing and modeling a tornado safe room with FEA.
