Zaire Husband of Monticello will be one of six students to present STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics) research at the state Capitol Wednesday, Feb. 14.
Husband, a computer science major, is among presenters from the University of Arkansas at Little Rock.
She will present research on the topic, “Adapting Snipe-It to manage an equipment inventory system.”
Posters will be set up in the capitol rotunda from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. and the student researchers will be on hand to talk about their work.
“The purpose of the event is to showcase undergraduate research at Arkansas universities to state representatives, senators, executive officers, public policy officials, Arkansas high school students, and the public,” said Jim Winter, director of the University Science Scholars, Louis Stokes Alliance for Minority Participation and Arkansas STRIVE programs.
Last year, more than 110 students from 15 Arkansas colleges and universities displayed posters. All student researchers were nominated by a faculty member to participate.
