The Undergraduate Research Expo — Boston, hosted by Project Lever, brings together students from universities in Boston and New England to showcase exciting undergraduate research and creative projects. Students will give short TED talk-style presentations on their own contributions to a broad range of fields – political science, engineering, psychology, and more! Participants will get to learn about diverse subjects from their own peers and share their own experiences. Project Lever is an initiative to catalyze undergraduate research. Our online platform makes research more accessible by compiling resources from both inside and outside the university so that students can easily search for and find the most relevant advisors, courses, grants, and student projects. When students spend less time searching for resources, they can spend more time actually doing research, resulting in better research for all!
