Looking for a way to explore the world of scientific research? Do you wish to develop practical skills essential in research such as critical thinking and teamwork? The Undergraduate Science Case Competition (USCC) is the perfect opportunity for you to explore your creativity and come up with a solution to a real-world scientific challenge.
This provincial competition is open to all undergraduate students, however first and second years will be judged in a separate division from upper year students. For the first round of the competition, starting November 1st, your team of 2-4 will have three weeks to write a brief research proposal tackling a real-world problem. The written proposal is limited to two pages; it’s the originality of the idea that really counts! The top 10% scoring teams of each division from uOttawa will be selected for round two in March to compete against other finalists from universities from around Ontario. Students present their research idea as an oral poster presentation, as well as attend a social, a conference, and an awards ceremony. Last year, uOttawa dominated the competition, having the most participants than any other campus in the first round, winning 1st place in the lower division, as well as 2nd place in the upper division. Let’s help uOttawa dominate a second time this year!
